Nantwich is being prepared for the reopening of non-essential retailers from tomorrow (June 15), writes Jonathan White.

The next stage of the government’s easing of lockdown restrictions begin – and hard-hit businesses in the town hope it will see a return of shoppers and ringing tills.

Essential shops remained open and some business sectors have already been allowed to reopen.

Non-essential retailers must adhere to social distancing guidelines for staff and shoppers before re-opening.

The indoor section of Nantwich Market will reopen with social distancing measures in place from Tuesday June 16.

Cheshire East Council has setup temporary social distancing measures to begin from tomorrow (June 15) across the town to keep people safe.

Two areas of Nantwich will be closed to traffic to help social distancing:

– Beam Street from the junction at Manor Road through to the junction at Waterlode (includes Swine Market and Oat Market)
– Pillory Street/Hospital Street from the roundabout at Waterlode near The Railway Hotel to The Gullet

Church Lane car park will also be temporarily closed.

Cheshire East Council suspended car park charges from late-March during lockdown, unlike neighbouring Cheshire West & Chester Council.

But controversially these are being reintroduced from Monday June 15.

    I still do not understand why we cannot use cash in the parking machines. We have contact when entering our registration so what logic is being used to prevent us dropping a few coins in?

  2. Anyone care to explain the route for the 84 bus from nantwich bus station.

  3. lovely to see the town opening up again but why reinstate parking charges. As shopping now takes longer give the motorist a chance to visit our town and shop. Businesses need all the help they can get without punitive parking charges.

  4. Doesn’t using Ringgo cost more?

  5. Alistair Raisbeck says:

    Don’t see what closing roads adds to safety. Just puts the traffic elsewhere and with road works on the Barony will increase the use of “rat runs” on unsuitable roads.
