Labour-run Cheshire West and Chester Council is planning to deliver a hammer blow to the borough. They have decided to remove free parking in Frodsham, Helsby, Northwich and Tarporley and scrap the "Free After 3" scheme in Chester and Ellesmere Port.
This will have a big impact on residents. Huge numbers of residents have told us how much they value the ability to park for free, making it easier to visit and shop in these towns. Local traders are often reliant on free parking to encourage people to use their local shops.
