Frustration over parking

I AM delighted that Clive Hobden has given such prominence to the inconsiderate and illegal parking that takes place on the double yellow lines and by the dropped kerbs outside the shops in Springett Avenue.

Sometimes I have seen those in motorised buggies having to go back some distance down Springett Avenue to find another dropped kerb in order to get to the shops. When I was the County Councillor I considered I had a responsibility to point out the infringement to those responsible for it.

Sometimes I received an apology, but more often an insulting response. I know that Cllr Chris Bowers also speaks to these ‘offenders’.

Unfortunately I suspect that those who park so inconsiderately do not live in the village and/or may well not read your paper.
