Please park considerately

The Parish Council would like to appeal to residents to park considerately.

We have had complaints of areas where gritters have not been able to get through; apart from the inconvenience of having untreated roads, this would invariably mean there is a danger that fire engines and ambulances may not be able to reach people in need.

There are parts of the village where parking is very dangerous in itself – for example the blind bend near the Church on South Newbald Road and  on Burgate where vehicles entering the village downhill might not be prepared to meet a vehicle coming the other way on their side of the road. There have been plenty of near misses.

We do not want to have to go down the route of requesting yellow lines at key points, but the Council may have to consider it if the situation does not improve.

Thank you for your cooperation with this.
