Has any real thought gone in to the consequences of putting lines down outside Foodcraft. This town has very little in it, now the powers that be, seem hell bent on disrupting the customer flow, to the best chip shop in Winsford, which WILL have a massive knock on effect, that could potentially force the business to close. How are disabled people expected to get there ?? Park on the multi storey car park, then have to trek a fair distance to get their fish supper. By the time they get back to their vehicle, their meal will be virtually cold !! Have a word, it's not rocket science. Most of the shops customers, are people who drive past, and pull in. NO TO THE LINES !!

You, the decision makers at CWAC have a golden opportunity here to show that you actually give a damn about the townspeople of Winsford, and the long established, well-loved, institution that is Foodcraft. Listen to the people and know that we don't want these lines. We don't want you to mercilessly extinguish the shining beacon that is Foodcraft. We don't want that to be "fixed" that isn't broken. We want you to support the local community. If you really care you will take this opportunity to show that you do.

Privately owned family businesses add immeasurably to a community, not only in providing services and local employment, but also in fostering enduring relationships between community members. I think it is the job of a local council to provide the environment within which local small businesses can thrive, something that Foodcraft have been doing for close to half a century! Access to parking on the high street is absolutely necessary for this old Winsford chippie to keep its customer base.

Well...if you want to kill off what is left of our historic wonderful old towns,cities and age old family run businesses, this is the way to do it. It makes me so angry to think that such uncaring and disrespectful people are in charge of our councils. Shame on you.

Seems like a crazy proposal that will effect a fantastic long-running family business whilst also putting more children from the primary school at risk from faster traffic.

do not destroy good businesses that bring value to the town, I have even stopped on my way back from Scotland to where I live now on the south coast for their steak pie and chips.

Yellow lines are not needed on this strip of road, there has never been a traffic problem here. How the council can justify putting them here, when the result is making a families life harder??? I thought the council were supposed to support the local community? This needs to stop happening so Foodcraft stats open

The 'powers that be' ripped the heart out of Winsford many years ago with the building of the existing dual carriageway. One Winsford jewel remains on it - Foodcraft. Placing yellow lines outside the premises will undoubtedly drive it out of existence - the business is highly reliant on passing trade. In comparison to other towns, the traffic flow through Winsford is excellent and in my experience - as a resident of 41 years - the dual-carriageway (drink & reckless driving aside) isn't dangerous in the slightest. Please leave as it is CWAC, or failing that just go the full hog and ride roughshod over our heritage once more and build an American style Super-Highway through the town.

    There is only congestion there when the school opens and closes. Yellow lines wont stop it BUT it might destroy this business. Please use some common sense not a beaurocratic approach

    Putting double yellow lines will NOT ease the traffic congestion problem of the high street, it's the parents of children attending high street school that still and will always park on the yellow lines already in place and not the allocated safe car parks.
