Highways Matters

Pavements are for peopleIt has again been brought to the Council's attention the problem of poorly parked cars within the parish - parking on public footpaths, blocking access for pedestrians, causing obstruction and parking opposite junctions.

Parking on the pavements/blocking junctions is a highways offence and enforceable with a fixed penalty notice. It is also dangerous to those who have to walk out onto the road to pass the vehicle and for those using hazardous junctions. The Council request that vehicle owners do not park their vehicles on the pavements or part opposite junctions.

The Police will be informed and enforcement action taken.
