There is an advantage that car parks and meters will not have to be policed by wardens (so they can stay home like most of us) and also parking machines will not fill up with cash, so less tempting to those with a criminal mindset.

Seems an odd decision to me it certainly gives a mixed message about people going out. It's almost an encouragement for them to do so.

In many area's around the town going on a brief visit to a supermarket / local shop,  involves using a civic car park. In the inetrest of health it is far better that such persons do not have to press buttons on parking machines that have had god knows how many fingers over them.

Go out and do what though?  Apart from a few shops, everywhere is closed.  I looked in at the Church Lane free car park earlier and it was pretty quiet.  I can't imagine people rushing to a council car park just because it is free given there is nothing to do

Malcolm Allan has posted on the  ‘Marple Covid19 Mutual Aid Group’ topic that all parking charges have now been suspended.

Isn't paying for your parking spending? It also seems to me that we wrinklies most of whom are on final salary pensions are the least hit by this plus we are not spending on our monthly holidays.

Yes that's my understanding too. There is absolutely no reason for the rest of us not to pay, particularly we wrinklies.

Just had a look on SMBC's website and it says Key Workers can park for free from 25th March.

It's not how I read the Council's Web site which seems to say free parking for key workers. I assume anyone else doing a bit of shopping still pays. We must be looking at different bits of the Council's Web site.

It has now been announced that all on street parking and car parks in the Stockport borough are to be  free 3 Months and reviewed after that, the meters will be emptied and notices put on them.
Will there be anyone using them .
