Neighbours living along four roads in Warwick have sent ‘robust’ objections to Warwickshire County Council about proposed radical parking restrictions.
The council wants there to be no parking at any time from Ansell Way down to the Wedgnock Lane traffic island and on parts of St Michael’s and Birmingham Road.
But local residents like Alex Davidson says: “This is a ludicrous idea. There are only parking problems on these roads because of the increase in county council workers who now park here.”
As a result of continuing county cutbacks several local authority offices have closed in the past year and abouty 100 staff have moved to offices such as Ansell Way, close to where Mr Davidson lives.
Complaints have sprung up in various parts of the town centre, including Saltisford, about the increased problems posed by cars left on the kerbside all day.
In his submission to the consultation process, Mr Davidson asks: “I write with my concerns about no parking at any time on St. Michael’s Road and Birmingham Road in Warwick,
“As my neighbours and I have stated in previous correspondence, there would not be any problem with parking in these roads if county council workers from Ansell Way did not park there.
If this idea does go ahead will staff move on to Millers and Cape Road and Wedgnock Lane? And then will the council make these roads no parking - or permit parking like the rest of the area?”
A decision will be made at a meeting on October 25.
