It is intended to follow a staged approach to deliver a more attractive pricing policy in order to improve economic vitality, and to ensure that the needs of the different towns and villages within Cheshire East are reflected. 


In 2014 consultations took place with local businesses, residents, and partnerships, on proposed changes to pricing policy and to off-street parking orders.  As a result of the responses made at that time amendments to the proposed Cheshire East Borough Council (Off Street Parking Places) (Consolidated) Order are proposed as follows: -


1.    That the charges for long stay parking in two Council owned car parks located by Crewe Railway Station (Pedley Street and Railway Street) be increased as follows: -


No. of Days

Existing Price (£)

Proposed Price (£)
























2.    That the maximum stay period at the Community Centre Car Park, Disley be amended to 3 hours, and the maximum stay at the South Street Car Park, Alderley Edge, be amended to 4 hours, unless a 3 month or 12 month permit is held and then the max 10 hours will still apply.


3.    That provision be made for the future introduction of electric/plugged in vehicle charging bays and associated infrastructure.


4.    That provision be made for the removal of certain car parks from the control of Cheshire East as various leases have come to, or are coming to, an end or the car park has been demolished. 


5.    That provision be made for the consolidation of a number of relevant parking orders into the proposed Cheshire East Borough Council (Off Street Parking Places) (Consolidated) Order 2015.


Pursuant to the consultation with local stakeholders it has also been decided that further amendments are required to the draft Order in order to take into account the interests of local residents and businesses.   As a result it is proposed; -

6.    That the charges at the following locations will remain unchanged:


Christchurch; Churchill Way; Commercial Road; Duke Street; Exchange Street; Gas Road; Grosvenor MSCP; Jordangate MSCP; Old Library; Park Green; Parsonage Street; Pickford Street; Sunderland Street; Town Hall; Waters Green; Whalley Hayes and Macclesfield Station.

1.    That approval be given for statutory consultation, amendments to the proposed Cheshire East Borough Council (Off Street Parking Places) (Consolidated) Order 2015 under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984; to introduce and consolidate the off street parking restrictions as set out in points 1 – 6 of the decision notice; and in the event that no objections are received, or where objections are made but withdrawn, to also authorise the making of the Order.


2.    That the Investigations Manager and Interim Parking Services Manager be authorised to implement the Order.


3.    That the impact of the proposed order be measured over a period of 12 months following implementation and be reported back to the Portfolio Holder.


4.    That support be given to continued improvements within the CEO team, and to the development of a parking strategy which will enable a service review and redesign of civil enforcement to provide a more effective service by July 2015.
