Updated: Exhibition on solutions to solve Wilmslow's parking problems postponed


A public exhibition of proposals being put forward by Cheshire East Council to help resolve the parking problems in the town has been postponed due to the weather.

Representations from CEC were due to staff the exhibition at Wilmslow Parish Hall this evening (Wednesday, 30th January) where local residents and those who work in the town would have the chance to review possible interventions and an initial list of possible measures which has been prepared.

The Council has recently completed a review of the public parking provision in the town aimed at providing a coherent whole-town approach to parking management that meets the needs of residents, businesses and visitors and delivering a set of interventions that can be introduced to address proven local parking problems.

A review of possible interventions and an initial list of possible measures has been prepared which will form the basis of a 4 week public consultation which is scheduled to commence today (30th January).

Updated: 3.30pm on Thursday, 31st January.

Wilmslow Town Council has confirmed that members of the public are being invited to re-arranged meetings, possibly on 13th February and 6th March.

I am awaiting from confirmation from CEC and more details.

They also confirmed that there will be a Wilmslow Parking Consultation with businesses, hosted by Cheshire East. The meeting is proposed for Wednesday 6th February at 7pm in the Parish Hall, and will be a round the table discussion.

I will publish further details when received.





Here's what readers have had to say so far. Why not add your thoughts below.

So when will this postponed public meeting be reconvened? Or will it take longer than the parking review or Brexit negotiations?
In the latest Wilmslow Tory newsletter, we are assured by local CEC Clltrs Gary & Ellie, that the req Stat Notices have been displayed. Where?

So no proposals for "Can't" Park Road, Dave Hall Avenue, Gable Avenue, South Close, Beech Lane, or Simpson Street.

A comprehensive review this is NOT in my honest opinion.

Oh dear CEC. Shot yourself in the foot again thinks. I drove past the CEC Lyme Green Depot tonight. Here we go again!

Details of the meetings keep being changed which is a strategy to confuse the residents and then hopefully few of us will take an interest and turn up to express our views. The council will then say that there was little interest and so they will do what they like and WE then get WHAT WE DESERVE!
