Action at last on the parking problem

Parking restrictions are to be introduced in the Hexthorpe Road area. Notices have appeared giving details. Parking is to be restricted to one hour on both sides of a length of Hexthorpe Road. Restrictions will also be in place on Flowitt Street and the adjoining car park

The parking problem has worsened in recent months. The green off Hexthorpe Road has been fenced off to prevent cars parking there. However, this has just meant that they are parked on grass further down the road.

It is hoped that this action will alleviate the problem that shop keepers are facing when there is no place for customers to park. Also it will make the area a safer place for pedestrians and car drivers.
