Please park thoughtfully

At their recent meeting Parish Councillors discussed continuing problems with drivers parking on pavements, which make it difficult for pedestrians, especially those using wheelchairs or pushchairs, to walk safely along Chadlington’s streets.

Councillors agreed to address this issue directly by putting notices on the offending vehicles.

These will read:

POLITE NOTICE Please do not obstruct the pavement.

Villagers including parents with pushchairs and users of wheelchairs and mobility scooters have recently been complaining to the council about blocked pavements, sometimes forcing them to detour into the road. We ask you politely to bear their problems in mind when parking, however difficult finding space for a car may sometimes be.

If you find one of these notices on your vehicle, please move it as soon as you can. Thank you.
