PARKING IS BECOMING A REAL PROBLEM IN CLIFTON
Further to Barnze’s recent letter, I agree parking is insane at the Top Shops. If some drivers could, they would drive into the shops rather than park up. I have observed an enforcement warden going up and down Lanthwaite Road (and other roads) on his scooter and then booking cars that have not caused any discomfort to others. One was booked on the cobbled area on Lanthwaite Road and one on the defunct hatched area where the council office entrance used to be.
I saw another within the parking lane outside the Post Office parcels office. As for blue badge holders. Has he asked to see the badge to check that the badge holder is, in fact, in the car? Or has he done anything about them parking within 32-feet of a junction. These rules are plain to see and in a booklet issued with the badge. As for the cars without a badge parking on double yellow lines, the Council could make a fortune by having a full-time warden walking up and down the road at the side of Wilkos and booking them. There again, I guess this would be hard work for the warden.
