Council to refund hundreds of incorrect parking fines
More than 500 motorists who were fined for using Sandbach and Holmes Chapel car parks in the last four years are due a refund.
Cheshire East Council said it had identified an error in the previous issuing of penalty charge notices on some free car parks — and it urged people to come forward and claim a reimbursement.
The issue, which was brought to the council’s attention during a recent consultation to increase parking charges, by Coun Rod Fletcher, has seen 675 penalty charge notices issued incorrectly between 26th October, 2015, and 13th March, 2019.
