Yellow lines clampdown on parking by workers in Barnoldswick

Lancashire Telegraph: COUN DAVID WHIPP COUN DAVID WHIPP

YELLOW lines have been painted in Barnoldswick’s Victory Park to prevent inconsiderate parking by people working at the Rolls-Royce Bankfield site.

Residents and park users have complained that workers were parking ‘indiscriminately’.

Coun David Whipp, chairman of the area committee which oversees parks in West Craven, said: “Hopefully, the lining scheme will prevent Bankfield workers blocking the park’s entrances and monopolising the parking.

“Rolls-Royce provide a shuttle bus from their car park at Ghyll Brow, where there’s plenty of space, so there is no need for workers to inconvenience park users, or nearby residents, by inconsiderate parking.

“If the lining and signs don’t cure the problem, the next step will be to introduce limits in the park to stop all-day parking.

“Parking restrictions are due to be introduced on Skipton Road, and the legal order to bring this into place is being advertised at the moment.

“In the long term, it’s important that parking issues are addressed as part of any redevelopment taking place in the area.”

Does making them park much more prettily remove the quantified risk or for that matter any of the cars parked in the area?
Why were the lines only applied to one side?
Why was nothing done about the 'foreseen' overspill out onto West Close Road?
How come there are no mother and baby parking spots allocated?
Where should the disabled park? On the double yellow lines?
Why should the community suffer access to it's own park for the sake of a few individuals who don't respect the fact that the park belongs to the town, not just to these employees?

Sadly it has not worked, they just park now between the lines, still no room for families, disabled and people of the town to enjoy the park !
Come on Management of Rolls Royce, sort your workers out, think of the community and help stop these selfish individuals taking over what is a peoples park !
