necessary to stop thinking about other drivers and start thinking about pedestrians.

Very few of us can claim to be 100% perfect when it comes to parking but the Parish
Council is hoping to start an education campaign to remind people that inconsiderate parking is also a hazard.

They are in the process of preparing a notice which, following approval from Cheshire West and Chester Council, will be placed on badly parked vehicles as a gentle reminder to think before they park.
