Highways Probe Into Village Parking

A village wide audit of parking in Lymm is to be carried out by borough council bosses. Residents have been told that unless they agree to the suggestions highways officials come up with, no changes will be made.

Parking Problems

Parking problems have been attracting complaints from residents across Lymm.

Traders say their business has been down 20 to 30 per cent on last year since free parking was cut from two hours to one in Pepper Street, Davies Way and Henry Street car parks.

While those living near the Co-op on Cherry Lane have also had reason to complain about parked cars blocking drives in nearby cul-de-sacs. Clr Sheila Woodyatt (Lymm – CON) said problems with parking are evident across Lymm.

“I went into the village this morning and the car parks were empty and yet Brookfield Road was packed with vehicles. The council needs to look at it and go back to two hours free parking, one is not enough. It is so easy to run out of time when you nip into the village. Footfall is down which is not good for the traders and the life of the village.”

The wider review has come about after an initial one for Cherry Lane was turned down by residents.

“The suggestions the borough council came up with were not acceptable so they have agreed to do a wider review which we have been after for years. But they say if the recommendations from that are not accepted, there will do nothing,” added Clr Woodyatt.

Compensation Paid by Lymm High

Filed under: Announcements

Employment Tribunal Service

Lymm High School was forced to pay £35,000 in compensation after two claims were submitted to the employment tribunal service.

In the past five years, one member of staff from the academy school was awarded a payout of £30,000 for unfair dismissal with another handed compensation amounting to £5,000 for unknown reasons. All claims submitted to the employment tribunal service are linked to unfair dismissal, redundancy payments or discrimination.

Nine non-disclosure agreement, which are more commonly referred to as gagging orders, were also signed by former members of staff from the school since 2009, with one being signed in 2013. It remains unclear whether seven of the cases, which involved non-disclosure agreements, included a compensation payout.

The school on Oughtrington Lane became the subject of a number of criticisms at the end of the academic year 2012 to 2013 after concerned parents slammed the school over its high turnover of staff and ‘petty’ rules. Angela Walsh, who had been principal at the school since 2008, was suspended on Thursday, June 20, following a flood of complaints.

Angela Walsh Under Investigation

The head teacher, who was paid a salary between £125,000 to £129,999, is currently under investigation following the suspension.

The school, which converted into an academy in October 2012, is now under the leadership of Tarun Kapur CBE, who took on the role of executive principal at the start of the academic term. Kieran Walshe, chair of governors at the academy, said the school is now moving in the right direction and has kicked off the new academic year with a positive start.

Mr Walshe said: “The feeback we have had from parents, teachers and most importantly the students has all been positive. The school year has started well and the students have settled in.”
