Wednesday February 10 2016

RESIDENTS on a busy town centre street have handed in a petition to ask for residents-only parking.

Around 35 locals from Cresswell Street in Pogmoor made the appeal - but the council said it is unlikely to progress as it is not a statutory duty for them to provide it.

They'll soon change their mind when they have to call the Council's permit system hotline!

I'm moving house. It's easier. And cheaper! ;P

Be careful what you wish for. the inconvenience of some one parking in front of your house. Which is legal btw. Or the jobsworth parking enforcement brigade who ticket you your mates/family/ for not displaying correct permit at right time or staying over 5 minutes at which point you won't have a job to stand on as you pay the fine. Just saying. The problem doesn't lie with the workers at the hospital. It's the hospital itself whereby the rich execs decided to penalise their staff by charging a small fortune for the privet edge of getting to work.

I live on a permit only street near the hospital and although I moan like hell when the permits are up for renewal and we have to pay for the privilege to park on your own street - in the long run its still better.
Still narks me that we should have to pay at all, years since before it was introduced it was supposed to be free AND it should be free - the hospital cause the problem and they should foot the bill NOT the local residents

Cutty Lane residents in the main have campaigned for restricted parking for at least 10 years due to hospital free loaders. I have repeatedly asked Mr Jarvis to help but he is unable. Our local streets are an overspill car park which the hospital and BMBC need therefore no action. Voting is in May have long memories
