Car Parking in Standish
Historically residents have used it and there have been talk that there is a covenant on saying that when Gateway opened the Car park on the right was for non customers. I have spoken to someone close to the talks at that time and it was the case that when Gateway was first proposed then the local business's objected to it. To reduce the objection Gateway said that non customers could use it. However, this doesn't seem to have been put in writing.
So we are now in the area where we don't want to be and not able to use the car park. However, after many residents contacted us and Standish Independents Cllr George Fairhurst, who first spoke with Aldi regional office last November 10th, got on the phone with the regional office again and told them of the issues and Aldi have kindly said that they will allow non customers to park for up to 90 mins as well as their customers. I guess many people will call in and do some shopping there and it will help their business too.
It's good that Aldi have said this will be the case and as long as this is not abused then we shouldn't have any problems and as a Community we can all work together.
Thank you goes to Cllr George Fairhurst who first thought about the issue last November and secured the parking with Aldi and now they have confirmed in an email to him this afternoon the position. Great to know that he, as well as the other two Standish Independents Cllrs are working hard for Standish.
Hopefully this clears up the situation.
