I was in Cheadle the other day with work. Like Prestwich, parking in the local council car parks is free all day, but unlike Prestwich part of the car park was set aside for short stay parking only. You had to get a (free) ticket from a machine and a parking attendant checked that only short stay cars were parked in the short stay bays.
Would this be a good idea for Prestwich – I’m thinking particularly in the Village centre (Fairfax Road and perhaps even the Longfield carpark). I know many people complain that it is impossible to get a parking space – just to visit local shops, the Library or the health centre, probably because all the spaces are taken up by people using the Metrolink to work in Manchester.
Good idea for Prestwich? What do you think?
