Wilmslow parking review

Cheshire East Council has completed a comprehensive review of parking in Wilmslow.

The findings of the Wilmslow Parking Review will inform the future approach to parking management, provision and pricing, as part of a wider transport strategy for the town. 

The review has been informed by on-site investigations, census data; correspondence received by the Council and on-street parking surveys. 

Public consultation took place between January and March 2019, with over 500 formal responses received by the Council. These have all been analysed to inform the final report.  

A set of proposals to address parking issues in Wilmslow has been developed.  In the short term, actions will include developing a business case for a multi-storey car park at Broadway Meadow and new parking restrictions on Alderley Road (Coach & Four to King’s Arms Roundabout.)

A parking strategy for Wilmslow requires a clear delivery sequence to avoid shifting problems from one part of Wilmslow to another. In total, 47 management measures have been identified. These are sequenced into short, medium and longer term opportunities.   

The Wilmslow Parking Review Final Report and the Interventions Map are available below:

All measures require further work regarding funding and statutory approvals, including further public consultation. A new multi-storey car park could take several years to complete, based on a business case which will be completed in the coming months.

Priorities will be delivered through the Council’s annual processes for setting budgets and programmes.
