Car parking and local transport review includes Alsager

Cheshire East Council are proposing major changes to the management of their car parks and have carried out a parking review and public consultation. 

They are conducting this engagement on local transport and parking to inform the future direction, infrastructure requirements and parking provision and charges for our town centres. These factors will be balanced against the vitality plans of town centres.

As town centres are currently facing major challenges as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, setting out a strategic and sustainable approach for local transport and parking will enable the Council to respond to long-term economic and environmental challenges presented by the pandemic and climate change.

The parking survey is now closed, and results are being analysed. A formal consultation on the final proposals will take place in March 2021.

The Local Transport Delivery Plans will identify where the Council should prioritise investment and seek funding for transport initiatives such as: accessibility for all; sustainability – improving walking, cycling and public transport; quality of the public realm; better neighbourhoods; and connectivity.

Full details can be found on the Cheshire East Council website where you can make comments and is open until 31 March 2021.

The parking survey has been conducted because parking provision and management are an important influence on travel choices and the attractiveness of our town centres. The survey sought feedback on the future role of parking, and on how the council can harmonise and improve parking services over the next five years.
