Split over return of disc parking to Barnoldswick
1:21pm Monday 28th January 2013 in News
COUNCILLORS and traders are split over whether disc parking should make a return in a West Craven town.
The debate in Barnoldswick centres on the Wellhouse Road car park, outside the Co-op.
Disc parking was introduced there in 2004, but axed after a widespread public outcry, including a 1,200-signature protest petition.
Members of the West Craven area committee have pledged to re-examine the issue after complaints about motorists finding it difficult to find a space there.
But Barry Matthews, chairman of Barnoldswick and West Craven Chamber of Trade, said he did not believe there was a serious parking problem in the town centre.
