James Machin started this petition to Manchester City Council

Manchester City Council: We the undersigned wish for action to be taken immediately to allow The Christie Multi-Tiered Car Park Section 106 Agreement to be signed off and for work to proceed forthwith on implementing the extended CPZ.

There now seems to be substantial delay in the Section 106 agreement, with what looks like an impasse between the Council and the Christie over the extended Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) operating costs (£75,000). Delays are currently running at more than 1 year.

Residents in the Ballbrook Conservation Area are extremely concerned about this and are feeling very let down. We know that residents in areas peripheral to the current Christie CPZ in other wards (e.g. Westholme Road, Brooklawn Drive, Roseland Ave, Henwood Road, Francis Road, Cotton Lane) have the same concerns.

The understanding in the original planning application, and associated discussions and consultation, is that under the Section 106 agreement, the Christie will contribute for the capital costs (£400,000) of setting up the extended CPZ, but not the operating costs.

However, the RPZ policy introduced by the Council in Sept 2018, stated that future RPZ schemes should be self-financing, and this has retrospectively applied the £75,000 operating costs to the extended Chrisite CPZ. Notably, this scheme was not included as one of the 4 new schemes that would go ahead without this restriction, even though it had already been proposed.

We would like this situation resolved quickly, to allow the Council and Christie to sign off the Section 106 agreement, so that the Tiered Car Park and the CPZ extension can go ahead.
