Residents of Lord Street, Cow Lane and Chancery Lane do not want parking restrictions 


YellowlinesBollington Town Council canvassed opinion from residents of Lord Street, Cow Lane and Chancery Lane recently, to see whether there was an appetite for parking restrictions (in this case, double yellow lines) around the corner of the junction.


The Bollington Town Council Traffic and Transport Working Group, made the decision to canvass local opinion, before engaging with Cheshire East. 


There was a very clear response from those residents directly affected by these proposals. A large majority of residents (75% of respondents) were against these restrictions being introduced and therefore there will be no application made by the Town Council to Cheshire East for double yellow lines in this area.


This was a very useful exercise, and as a result, we received a number of really constructive alternative suggestions about how we might manage parking and traffic movement in our town. We are planning to take further soundings from residents and where possible, make changes that have wide community support.


For all those residents that took part in this targeted survey, thank you!
