Don't spoil our villages

347 Signatures Goal: 3,000

Warrington Borough Council has reduced free car-parking from two hours to one on Stockton Heath's Forge car park and at the Pepper Street car park in Lymm. Car parks in Davies Way and Henry Street in Lymm, which were free, have been made Pay-and-Display with only one hour free.

The changes are having a serious effect on shops and businesses in the villages and they are spoiling the relaxed village experience, which makes visiting Stockton Heath and Lymm so enjoyable. On-street parking has increased and problems have been created for residents visiting doctors, dentists and other professionals as well as causing dangerous congestion and traffic jams.

Did you know that only in Stockton Heath and Lymm are drivers charged at the Council's District Car Parks? These car parks already make a profit but the Council strategy is to raise this to £200,000 to help to cover the huge losses made in free resident-only parking zones in other areas of Warrington.

If you think the restriction on free parking is unfair and/or causing problems for you and others, please sign our petition. A final decision on the Council’s Parking Strategy will be made in June so your voice could make a difference.

    The knock-on effect of the policy in Lymm has been an explosion of dangerous parking on Brookfield Road. A 2-hour free period would address the issue of all-day parking without creating the accident-waiting-to-happen we have at present.
