Royal British Legion Car Park
As many people are now aware, the former RBL car park is closed for re-development. The Parish Council have been informed that the new car park should be open from about the middle of May 2018. After that they will build the new houses further up the site.
Tarporley Parish Council are inviting suggestions from everybody in Tarporley for a name for the new car park on this site.
We want to give the car park a new name to mark the change of ownership to the Parish Council. Please send your suggestions for consideration to the Clerk by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 5th March 2018.
Car Parking Postcards
Parking postcards have been created with details of the car parking facilities in Tarporley and are being distributed to all businesses along the High Street. Visitors may not be familiar with all the car parks in Tarporley and this provides information for them.
Inappropriate use of litter bins
A small number of businesses and residents have reportedly been observed stuffing rubbish into the black public litter bins on the High Street and at the Community Centre field thereby filling them up to overflowing much sooner than would ordinarily be the case. We would like to remind everyone that these bins are for public use, not for business or household waste and the Parish Council asks those concerned to please stop this practice immediately. Cheshire West and Chester Council Environmental Health Team have informed the Parish Council that penalty fines will be issued to anyone caught using the litter bins inappropriately.
Speeding in the Village
Following several complaints about speeding in the village, the local Police Community Support Officer has recently conducted a speed monitoring exercise along the High Street and other roads such as Eaton Road and Cobblers Cross. The drivers caught speeding will be contacted. The Parish Council are working closely with Cheshire Police to try and reduce the number of speeding cars in the village and another speed watch scheme may be introduced this summer. You will also have noticed the new 20mph speed limits by now so please take care not to exceed them.
Following the success of the last year’s Annual Meeting, the Parish Council have agreed to organise a community ‘market place’ style event again this May in the Community Centre. Local Clubs and organisations attended last year to raise awareness and share information with the local community.
If you know of any local community organisation that would like a stall at this event, please email the clerk at email@example.com or telephone 01829 732 516. The event will take place on Saturday 12th May between 10am and 12pm.
