Free parking in Sandbach and Middlewich sign now

We the undersigned petition Cheshire East to stop the implementation of parking charges in the towns of Sandbach and Middlewich. The parking charges will have a detrimental impact on the towns including the traders and the charity shops, both of which are struggling because of the current economic situation. Both of the Town Councils are against this. Listen to the will of the people of the towns. The report which Cheshire East is basing the charges on was rejected by Congleton Borough Council who declared it to be flawed and misleading. In Sandbach specifically the proposal would mean charging to park on an area that is officially designated as a village green, which means it is common land.

    If you have to pay to park in Sandbach, residents and visitors will be deterred from stopping and go to larger shopping areas or supermarkets instead. Trade for shops in Sandbach needs to be boosted especially in this economic climate - this parking charg

    I believe that removal of free parking can only be detrimental to the town of Sandbach. The Council should spend it's time encouraging trade, commerce and visitors and not creating obstacles. Especially ones that will cost a lot of money to implement. Tow

    Having to pay for parking in Sandbach will kill the town and residents should not have to pay to park outside their own house. Town Sandbach

  • 29 March 201482. Steve B
    Free carparking is vital in Sandbach. If your logic for charging is to keep spaces for shoppers rather than shop workers, there must be other ways of achieving that without charging eg 2 hours free parking ? If you charge for short stay periods, in my opi

    In the interest of the town? Or in the interest of the fact that Gordon Browns government has generated so much debt, that Cheshire East is now even charging it's own constituents to park in order to make a living. Distgusting. Town Sandbach
