In early June I was buttonholed by a fellow parishioner at church drawing my attention to the parking arrangements opposite the Eight Bells in Angel Street. There is a raised portion behind the zebra zig zag lines (see photo) which is meant for no parking but which is often used for parking to the detriment of pedestrians wishing to cross the road.
When cars are parked on the raised portion the visibility of oncoming traffic is hindered which causes problems (in this case) to persons using mobility scooters but the problem applies equally to young children and adults.
Together with the local police constable we referred the matter to the County Council. The good news today is that the white lines have been painted.
So all in all – good news all round!
