A local PCSO has been patrolling around the area of Ashdene Primary School for the last three days during drop-off and pick-up periods to tackle the ongoing problem of dangerous parking.

PCSO Morris said "Currently, inappropriate driving and parking by drivers is creating a risk to pedestrians - most of whom are young schoolchildren - and congestion for other vehicles."

This week he has issued:

  • Three vehicles were issued Fixed Penalty Notices for obstruction of junctions
  • Two vehicles were issued Fixed Penalty Notices for obstruction of pavements
  • Three drivers were advised about the manner of their parking.

PCSO Morris added "This has been raised as a priority particularly by local residents, and it's really important that if you want action to continue that you tell us. You can do this by filling out a short survey at https://orlo.uk/LirDc, choosing the areas "Macclesfield" and "Wilmslow West and Chorley."

"If anyone requires a refresh of the Highway Code, which advises on your responsibilities when driving and parking, this is available on the government website."
