Knutsford Town Council thanks the 658 people who completed questionnaires to provide feedback on the draft traffic and parking proposals for Knutsford Town Centre in our recent consultation. Volunteers on our town centre working group have analysed the data and have prepared an initial draft report which is being reviewed.
A sizeable majority supported the proposals, with 58% saying Yes to the question “Overall do you support this 3-part scheme as a first step towards securing the future of Knutsford town centre?” Support for each of the three parts was even stronger; such as 77% in favour of fewer cars parked on Top and Bottom streets, and enforcing the ‘no-parking’ regulations.
Clearly, however, the sudden economic and social impact of the Covid-19 pandemic has changed things. The proposals, therefore, will remain dormant until the pandemic has passed and life settles into some new normality.
