BIG PIC­TURE

Macclesfield Express - - YOUR VIEWS -

down it now as a short­cut be­cause the whole town cen­tre is a night­mare. Lisa-Marie Collins: I think the peo­ple who ac­tu­ally live in the area (my­self and fam­ily mem­bers in­cluded) should have the say over what hap­pens. We are the ones suf­fer­ing, not the gov­ern­ment! False prom­ises as usual! Steven Mayer: I would like to see a res­i­dents only park­ing or­der on Lowe Street, it’s full of peo­ple’s cars that park and go to work and a lot are parked on the foot­path. Mark Stock­ton: I live on Moss Lane and I’d like our road blocked off be­fore my house falls down with the num­ber of HGVs us­ing it as a cut through ev­ery day (7.5 ton limit) but don’t think it’s go­ing to hap­pen. As for Coare Street, don’t think it mat­ters be­cause when King’s goes it will be just another over­crowded street in Mac­cles­field. Toni Kelly: Same goes for Lord Street and St Ge­orges Street – it’s a night­mare!! If the new Lidl gets the go ahead for Park Green it’s only go­ing to get worse! Sharon Pol­lard: Mac­cles­field is full of cars, peo­ple who work in town fill side streets so they don’t have to pay to park. I had it on High Street, couldn’t get within a mile with a boot of food shop­ping, it needs a com­plete over­haul. Paula John­son: It’s a public high­way and not a pri­vate road. The res­i­dents of Coare Street chose to live there so if they don’t like it, jog on and move some­where qui­eter! Tracy Wood: I live on High Street and can­not park out­side my flat, have to park way down the road. Robert Mar­shall: They con­sulted us (I’m a res­i­dent of the area) about putting the block in place and ap­pear to have changed their mind with­out any con­sul­ta­tion?! Lucy Mayo: Where are peo­ple sup­posed to park though? Ev­ery­one keeps get­ting slapped with park­ing fines! Ruth Brown: On our road we can’t park out­side our houses as we would get booked! We ap­plied for res­i­dents park­ing but it was thrown out as no­body was in­ter­ested. When the town gets de­vel­oped and car park space di­min­ishes the sit­u­a­tion will be ridicu­lous.
