Drive Appropriately, Park Considerately

Despite previous coverage in the Village Pump, the Parish Council still regularly receives concerns from members of the public about inconsiderate, potentially dangerous parking and the numbers of vehicles being driven inappropriately through the village.

Instances of inconsiderate parking include Main Street opposite the allotments and near the school (at drop off/pick up time) as well as the junctions at the Village Green, with vehicles parked in such a way that it limits visibility for emerging traffic. Problems have also been reported on the corner of Chapel Lane and opposite the junction.

The Highway Code gives advice on waiting and parking part of Rule 243 states Do Not stop or park… …opposite or within 10 metres (32 feet) of a junction, except in an authorised parking space.

The Parish Council urges everyone to think of other road users including pedestrians, cars, buses and service vehicles. We urge you to "drive appropriately, park considerately".
