Willaston and Rope Ward UKIP Councillor Brian Silvester has welcomed the threats from the local Police to residents to stop obstructing the highways and footpaths in Meadow View and Wistaston Road, Willaston.
He said," I have been pressing the Police to take action for some time.They have now sent out letters to all the residents in the area. (Attached and also see photos below showing irresponsible parking at the junction of Meadow View and Wistaston Road) I hope the Police are good to their word and do not hesitate to hand out fines to the minority of thoughtless motorists who are parking their vehicles in a dangerous way.
At my initiative Cheshire East Council (CEC) have agreed to carry out a parking review in the area and implement it. Parking provision has been a chronic problem in the centre of Willaston for many years. To make matters worse CEC have allowed Meadow View to be developed without adequate parking provision for the houses and this has just exasperated the situation. Recently some buses had to divert from the centre of the village because the congestion was so bad they could not get through with the bus."
