Parking – Latest

An Update From Parish Council Meeting 09/12/2014

Gary Denby has provided an update on the discussions on parking at the recent Parish Council meeting……

“Parking in the old part of the village was a main point of concern raised in the Village Plan survey carried out in October 2014. On 9th December the Parish Council received petitions against yellow lines from local shop keepers and other parties, along with eleven suggestions to alleviate the long standing parking issues.”

“Our Northamptonshire County Councillor, Robin Brown, was in attendance and agreed to carry these views back to Northamptonshire Highways. He considered these proposals as a waste of County Council funds, (particularly when faced with needing to save £66 million next year) – proceeding to consultation without prior reference to community leaders (Parish Council). From his experience, this is being repeated in many villages in similar situations. Thus he will be seeking an explanation from the Head of Northamptonshire Highways, as to why and how this waste of effort can be triggered by a single letter of complaint.”

“Our Parish Clerk was also instructed to email a letter of objection to any additional yellow lines to Northamptonshire Highways.”
