Cheshire West and Chester have taken over parking enforcement from Wednesday 20 November 2013 from Cheshire Police for the former Vale Royal area. Parking rules will stay the same; the only difference will be that the Council will be responsible for enforcing them instead of the police.
The majority of parking enforcement across the UK is now the responsibility of local Councils rather than the police. This change is a result of the police’s need to spend more time fighting crime. By transferring powers local Councils are better able to respond to local needs and the parking concerns of the community.
Cheshire West and Chester Council already carries out parking enforcement in the Ellesmere Port, Neston and Chester areas. The addition of the former Vale Royal area will mean that there will be the same consistent approach to enforcement.
