Careless parkers to face fines


D


rivers in the village who block pavements with their cars have been warned by the


local police team they will face fines in the future. Previously car owners who parked badly were


given warning notes but as from next month PCSOs will be authorised to give out parking fines. Sergeant Neil Canning confirmed that changes to the powers that PCSOs have will mean drivers need to think more carefully about where they park. He said: ―Our PCSOs are currently receiving


training and will be in a position to give out parking fines from the latter part of November. Vehicles obstructing the pavement cause problems for pedestrians. This new move will help reduce the number of cars who park badly making life difficult for people. In the past we placed on advisory messages on people‘s cars but that‘s set to change.‖ Sergeant Canning was given support by parish


councillor Sara Bedford. She said: ―I‘ve received complaints from people


about blocked pavements. One woman who has a disability scooter has constant problems with blocked access and ends up having to go into the road to go around parked vehicles. ―This is something that affects vulnerable


people in particular especially those in wheelchairs, with prams and those on crutches. People need to think more carefully about where they park and the effect it has on their neighbours. I hope it doesn‘t come to too many people getting tickets but a more responsible approach needs to be taken.‖ Cllr Bedford said that Abbots Road, Trowley


Rise and Primrose Hill, were the worst affected roads.
