Pogmoor residential parking permits denied

Wednesday February 24 2016

Barnsley Council Barnsley Council

ANGRY residents have had a request for residential parking permits turned down by the Council.

A petition with 35 signatures was passed to the Council from residents of Cresswell Street, Pogmoor, but their request was denied because of the lack of funding.

Funding for residents only parking schemes was withdrawn as part of the 2011/12 budget review.

Residential parking schemes are a disgrace. When I was trying to park near Barnsley hospital all the roads were clear, hardy any residents were using the facility and yet if I'd parked there I would have been fined.

I totally understand the residents are angry and fed up. I work at bdgh and park outside peoples houses/on the streets because parking in the car park is almost 1 hour of my wage. Im only part time and cant afford the car park every time i go to work.
Im sorry to any whos house ive parked outside..but sometimes i have to

shouldn't have to apologise the whole thing is a fiasco. Capitalising on people's need to park is a disgrace, it's not fair on the staff, the patients or the residents yet no one wants to address the problem.

Living around the Hospital, the issue used to be buses and Emergency vehicles couldn't get by due to double parking. The scheme works well, and residents pay for their permits etc. Roll back years ago, and the roads were really bad. It was brought in for a reason, and it works. Some driveways are rented out too for the day - see relevant websites who specialise in this. Cheaper than parking at BDGH.
