Cllr Ann Smith, who represents the Davenport and Cale Green ward containing parts of Shaw Heath, has written an urgent letter to residents in Shaw Heath about a petition on resident only parking.
Ann was contacted by residents concerned about problems with the number of cars parking on Wellington Grove, particularly near the junction with Shaw Heath.
These problems have knock on effects further up Wellington Grove, as well on Crosby Road and Cale Road.
Ann told residents in her letter that “The local businesses on Shaw Heath are very important to us here, but they need to be fair about staff parking on residential roads. Especially when there is ample parking already in the Shaw Heath area.”
Ann proposed a Residents Permit parking scheme on Wellington Grove to solve the problem. But she wants residents to have their say on whether they want this scheme to be adopted.
Permit Parking Schemes prevent the long term parking of vehicles owned by non-residents by providing space where only residents and their visitors can park.
Ann asked residents to have their say via a petition enclosed with the letter. Residents can print a copy of this petition by clicking here, or e-mail their details to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
