After the Council received a petition from some of the businesses on Old Rectory Gardens, Cheadle (next to the Post Office), proposals were brought forward to reduce the maximum parking time there from one hour to 20 minutes (the original request was for 15 minutes).
That proposal was then advertised, inviting people to object if they wanted and it was an example of how that was needed. We had a number of objections from other nearby businesses who clearly didn’t share the view that the time should be reduced.
Having looked at both sides, councillors decided to withdraw the proposed change and leave the parking time at one hour. If some businesses want to change it, they really need to get wider agreement first.
