Maine City Fans Local Parking disappointment is plans for streets where no one lives

Plans to introduce a major new residential parking scheme around the alliance have angered Manchester City fans - who say many of the roads involved are in industrial areas and business parks where no one lives. On match day, hundreds of city supporters park on the streets in and around Briscoe Lane and Lord Street North, most of which are surrounded by commercial property or surrounded by green spaces.
But, under the councils new proposal, these roads will be restricted to residential roads. Kevin Parker, secretary of Manchester Citys Official Sports Club, said: "We would understand a scheme that protects residents parking spaces, but if they changed restrictions around non-residential areas, such as in commercial or industrial areas, it would appear unfair for no good reason. good."
Many housing estates around the union already have parking restrictions. But the board is considering a comprehensive new Eastland scheme. This is partly due to the construction of the £350m Live Co-op Arena, with a capacity of 23,500 people, poised to become the UKs largest indoor venue.

Labor Faces Red After Campaign Candidates Call Candidates Council

Labor has apologized for calling one of the Manchester Council candidates a "counselor" in a campaign letter sent ahead of next weeks local elections. A letter from newcomer Ernama Bell shouted at voters in Mosside, telling them he was their "local Labor adviser".
However, the peace activist known for his work tackling gun crime in Manchester is not currently a member of the council - and has never been on the board. Speaking to the Local Democracy Reporting Service, he explained that the wording in the letter was based on a template left out in error.
"It was a mistake and we apologize. If anyone was misled, it was unintentional," he said.
The professor, who has been awarded an MBE, joined the Labor Party in 2011. He rose to prominence in the local Labor branch before running as a candidate to represent the Mass Side Ward in Manchester.
In the last local election in 2021, Labor candidates won more than 80% of the vote, making Moss Side a safe seat for the ruling group. But Professor Bell said he didnt count his chickens before their babies were born.
He said: "People need to come out and vote and people need to know who their local council members are. The reason I volunteered was because Im a community worker and I believe in these silent people.

The council said the situation has improved significantly in the past year it is still vitally important that precautions are taken to prevent the further spread of the virus.

"But its close to the city centre and free."
