Shocking parking continues!

Car parking 3
Car parking 2

After we reported last week that a car had been parked on a footpath we have received further pictures of other cars in the village.

You can see in the pictures above that one car has been parked on what is known as 'the bad corner'. Not only is it obstructing the footpath but where it is parked forces pedestrians into both sets of on coming traffic! Imagine trying to pass this with a pram or in a wheelchair!

Car number two is parked on a corner of Hillside Crescent near to the entrance of the Woodland Park. Rather than use the car park this person thinks this is an acceptable place to leave their vehicle. A Hillside Crescent resident has had enough as this isn't the first time it has been left here so they sent in the picture!

In the third picture you can clearly see that the car has been parked with all 4 wheels on the pavement. Is there really any need for this?

Let us have your thoughts and if you spot a car parked on the path send it in to us! It may just deter people from parking irresponsibly!

    Why conceal the number plates ?
    Another big problem is the amount of HGV lorries coming through the village at speed with no regards for the weight limit This is to avid the road works on Stamford rd They start about 0630 am and the busiest time is school time Do we wait for an accident before something is done ?

      Parking is a problem everywhere and the police don’t have the manpower to patrol and control this. However we can telephone 111 and report it. They will respond, we had what appeared to be two abandoned vehicles parked illegally near our old address and they were gone within 2 days.

      Why conceal the number plates? Well we don’t want anybody retaliating or damaging peoples property, we simply want these drivers to take note and understand that we, as a village, want it to remain a safe place. We are still receiving pictures daily from residents who are fed up with it all.

      Fingers crossed that the Oundle bound Heavy traffic will be discouraged from using the existing section of the A427 currently running through the village, once the new roundabout being built on The A43 near Priors Hall entrance is completed. At least this should prevent Oundle bound heavy goods vehicles and Public Service vehicles from using the narrow section from the war memorial to the village exit on Oundle Road.
