Residents will no doubt be aware of the ongoing proposals to introduce pay and display parking in Heaton Park.
When the proposals were introduced objections were raised by residents, and by your local councillors about the potential impact on the St Margaret’s Road area.
To help reduce the impact, Manchester Council have agreed to pay for additional double yellow line in the St Margaret’s Road area, and also on Sheepfoot Lane.
This has been something we have been chasing up ever since the proposals were made, and this is now being consulted on by Bury Council.
The new yellow lines would run round the ‘outer’ side of St Margaret’s Road – right up to Heywood Road, and also around the junction of St Margaret’s Close.
Hopefully this is helpful to residents in trying to limit the amount of Heaton Park parking.
We do also have an outstanding issue around parking at the start of St Margaret’s Road (the time-limited bays) and their impact round the corner on the start of Polefield Road. At our request this issue is being considered by the Council’s traffic management group and we will report back separately on progress here.
