Parking Permit Scheme Added To Three Town Centre Streets

Thursday September 27 2012

A PARKING permit scheme has been launched on three town centre streets to help solve what residents call a parking nightmare.

Western Street, Vernon Street and Victoria Street will now offer parking for permit holding residents only between 8am and 6pm from Monday to Saturday.

Permits for Western Street, Vernon Street and Victoria Street are the final stage of the council’s controlled residents’ parking scheme, and follows enforcement on residential streets around Barnsley Hospital and Honeywell.

So what about places like Welbeck Street and Brierfield Close? They're even closer to the area and there's disabled people living round there and having issues even trying to get mobility vehicles around without having to go around the houses just to get to their front doors. Not to mention parking on the dropped kerbs and making it harder still!

Nicholas Street - Nightmare, especially with it being one way, if someone has whacked their car outside your house since 8am on your way back you have to find out then continue on to the end of the road come back and put a neighbour in your position because you can't park outside your home.

Princess Street is a nightmare as well to park outside my house.

Dobie Street is a joke. Especially one bloke with all his stupid cars and van that is in a right mess that he never moves. Parked so far on curb you can't even get past!
