A TOWN council is set to hold a special meeting focusing on proposals to increase parking charges in the town. Staffordshire Moorlands District Council is due this month to set it’s budget for 2020/21 and among the proposals for expenditure and income during the next financial year, the council is looking to increase parking charges at its car parks including those in Cheadle, Leek, and Biddulph.

Community leaders have voiced their opinions over parking issues in their town. The comments from a handful of the Cheadle Staffordshire Moorlands District Council (SMDC) councillors come after the Times and Echo have received a number of letters raising concerns about parking charges along with concerns that district council members of the town are not challenging the issue. Currently, parking charges range from 90p for one hour and under to £2.20 for three to ten hours between 9.30am to 3.30pm – the fees vary on long and short stay car parks. Amongst several topics, residents have complained about the price of parking in the town when only staying for a short period of time and the absence of drop-off bays along High Street.
