Annoyed by Poor Parking in the Village?

West Bergholt Road Safety GroupAnnoyed by Poor Parking in the Village?

Working together the Parish Council and Road Safety Group are looking at means of enforcement and education to promote better parking in the village.  The Group now wants to recruit a team of volunteer parking monitors to occasionally patrol a few areas in the village to curtail poor parking.

We aren’t expecting volunteers to act like traffic wardens, simply wander around hot spots encouraging better parking behaviour.  Hi-vis jackets with the council logo will be provided as well as guidelines.  All patrols will be in pairs of course.

This is what we are talking about:

Thoughtless Parking at Poor’s Land

Notice of Access required

Notice of Access against thoughtless parkersThoughtless Parking at Poor’s Land

Affecting children at Heathlands, Bergholt Heath YFC and the general public at large, thoughtless parking at the Poor’s Land Gate is a problem.  The Parish Council contracts with Countrywide to maintain this land; last week they tried to gain access on 3 occasions but were unable to do so.

Without maintenance the land may cease to be fit for purpose depriving our youth and fellow villagers of a much-loved facility.

No Excuse

With ample parking available at Orpen Hall & Church car parks, all just a short walk, there really is no excuse.

Parking Issues

This is just the latest in a series of parking concerns over the past year or so.  Remember you can help address this by reporting parking, even speeding, issues using Trygve.  This app (iOS or Android), allows you to take a picture, record the location and record details of incidents which are then reviewed.  There is an active group  you can join and see what others are reporting – West Bergholt Road Violations.
