Car parking charges cut
NANTWICH Town Councillors have won a partial
victory on car parking charges. In the front page lead story of the
Nantwich Chronicle (November 24, 2010) it was reported that Cheshire
East Council had agreed to a reduction in the charges from 70p to 50p for the
first hour and from £1 to 90p for two hours. There was no mention
of the other charges - two to four hours and four to 10 hours. Sunday
parking costs 50p, and presumably won't change either.
Cllr Arthur Moran, who has been
at the head of the fight to reduce the charges is quoted as saying it
was only "a step in the right direction." He and the other campaigners
want parity throughout the Borough Council's area. Congleton's charges are
30p for the first hour and 50p for two hours.
