Field Road, Ashton upon Mersey: Proposed Parking Restrictions

The permit parking scheme in the Green Lane area of Ashton upon Mersey (including Derby Road) was introduced in 2002 following a public consultation exercise. At this time the majority of residents of Field Road did not wish to be included in the permit parking scheme.

In recent months the Council has received requests for Field Road to be reconsidered for inclusion in the scheme. The Council has been monitoring parking in the wider area, taking into account comments made by local Councillors and by members of the public. The Council’s observations confirm that, along Field Road, parking is creating problems, particularly related to employees and customers of nearby businesses. Of particular concern is parking that causes an obstruction to traffic flow or presents a hazard to other road users.

The end date for responses is 31 October 2014.
