The Parish Council office has received complaints recently about drivers using the entrance instead of the exit to leave the Church Street car park next to the Co-op. This is despite the entrance on Church Street clearly being signposted as ‘No exit’ and the actual exit on Shaw Street also being clearly marked.
To tackle the problem, the Parish Council (which owns the car park) is considering investing in extra ‘No exit’ signage, to make it even clearer that drivers shouldn’t be leaving the car park through the entrance.
It’s unfortunate that residents’ Council Tax payments have to be used likes this, because of the actions of a careless few. However, the alternative options, such as installing entrance and exit barriers, would cost a lot more – and given the obvious safety issues involved, ‘Do nothing’ isn’t an option at all.
