They would probably ticket over £600 on a Saturday evening, well worth the shift

I do wonder how many of our Poynton posters have never, ever, parked on a double yellow for the shear convenience. Just for a few minutes? ;)

That's £10k a head. They could at least have to pay for themselves.

I have to admit that I am guilty of parking on double yellows outside the Co-op for a couple of minutes when I just want to nip in for a paper and all the parking spaces are full.

What are you supposed to do, drive around until people leave the coffee shop? .

Loading or unloading is permitted on double yellow lines. However whether nipping in for a paper counts as loading is at best debatable. I suspect that most of us have been guilty of this at some point.

I believe that parking restrictions are going to be put in place in the parking bays out side the Coop in School lane, any body else picked this up ?

Yes I must admit , outside the Co-op on School Lane I am guilty of parking on the yellows and going in, but on Park Lane , I ALWAYS park either at the car park next to the church when I have been in Greggs (once) for the Pig I park (sat in my car) in the little gap facing it while someone else nips in, or in the Farmers car park, (I have spent enough in there over the years to justify it, and Martin wont mind

Yes, I've seen the notices around there, 2 hour limit as on London Road. Although I don't think there's a huge problem with long stay around the Co-op, so I don't think that will raise much.

So I suppose the enforcement officers will be spending their time going between London Road and School Lane, hopefully picking up some business on Park Lane in between. I can't see them working evenings or weekends though.
