Near the busy Cheadle village centre, it’s a constant balancing act between residents wanting to park near their own homes and shoppers/workers wanting to park in the centre.
One idea we’re looking at is to take the areas currently residents parking around Massie Street, and change them to mixed use. During the daytime (perhaps 9.30am to 4.30pm) they would be 2 hour limited waiting bays (though you could park as long as you liked with a residents permit). Overnight, from 4.30pm through until 9.30am the next day they would be standard residents parking as now.
Out hope is that it would create more free short-stay parking for shoppers, without inconveniencing residents – since there are normally enough residents out during the day that parking spaces are less of a problem.
What do you think?
