  • Still people parking outside the shops it is dangerous - especially for people walking on the pavement when cars just pull in it forces pedestrians to walk near or in the busy road. Cars parking on the main road as well blocks up the road and round about - it is already a dangerous roundabout but this is making it worse. Cars could park and cross the road or round the corner but choose not to as there are no restrictions.

  • Footpath blocked By an audi and a van ! This is not a car park!

    Kids use the shops as do parents with push chairs and wheel chairs!

    There is no way anyone can get passed! And you should have to dodge cars driving onto the footpath!

  • Good afternoon. Metal bollards have been installed to stop vehicles crossing the footway to gain access to private forecourts. The area in front of the shops is private forecourt and not maintained by L B Bromley. A dropped kerb and vehicle crossing is in place which allows access to these forecourts. Our parking and enforcement sections are aware of this and will continue to monitor any parking that takes place outside these areas. Enforcement action will be taken against any vehicle that is observed parking on the public footway. The width of the public footway extends to the demarcation line approximately 1.6m from the kerb line.
