A residents parking scheme on lower Church Lane has been talked about for many years but so far without success. That was until a recent Marple Area Committee, where a Residents Parking scheme for Lower Church Lane was finally approved.
This was a result of hard work and persistence by the residents and your local Conservative Councillors, Kenny Blair and Tom Dowse.
Cllr Blair said “Residents contacted me early last year regarding the problem and I have been working with Council officers ever since to get a resolution. The majority of residents support this and I know that previous Councillors had made promises 3 or 4 years ago that a residents parking scheme would be implemented. I am happy that myself and Cllr Dowse have gone one step further and actually delivered this.”
Cllr Dowse commented, “We recognise there is still work to be done on this road, but we will continue to work with residents to improve the area they live in, where we can.”
