Cllr Silvester said, “This cul de sac was allowed to be built with insufficient parking space initially. As a consequence there have been severe parking problems since the houses were occupied. Cars park on the grass verges and double park at the junction which makes it very difficult for an emergency vehicle and sometimes the bin wagon to obtain access. The Police have been involved and they have written to all the residents but the problems continue.

It was a win that got away for Nantwich after Alex Meaney’s first half strike was the only conversion of a wealth of chances in an albeit handsome performance allowing Arjun Purewal’s header to steal a Spartans point.

Dabbers loanee Nick Haughton was the shining light with exciting footwork and skill but even he spurned a great chance in the second period.

Nantwich started brightly with crosses threatening to pick out Aaron Burns in dangerous positions.

Appalled at the possibility of a piece of Nantwich’s history being lost under a housing development, members of Nantwich Walled Garden Society have vowed that they will continue the fight to restore the garden for the local community and a significant attraction for the town’s many visitors.

The garden site is owned by a developer who has plans to build eight dwellings. The society concedes that the developer has every right to do that, having been granted planning permission by Cheshire East Council, but they believe there is a way that both sides can be satisfied.

Chairman of the society, Peter Harrington, says: “The site is too valuable to lose. It must be possible for the eight dwellings be put into the Kingsley Fields 2 housing site, leaving the garden site to be restored as a community project.”
