Paul and Ted secure parking restrictions on Wicket Close
After running a campaign of intense lobbying over the past few months following concerns expressed about parking by residents of Wicket Close, in Southfields, Leicestershire County Council’s Environment and Transport Department has finally agreed to take action. The main argument that Paul and Ted put forward was that of road safety. The cars parked on the pavement often meant that residents were forced to walk onto the road and they would often restrict access to vehicles into the close. There was also a concern that children playing in the area would not be seen by cars driving into the close. Officers are therefore proposing to impose a no waiting at any time restriction around the junction of Wicket Close and Beacon Road. In addition to this, consideration has been given to on-street parking facilities within the area and whether amendments could be made to reflect the increased level of residential properties. Therefore, officers are proposing to add Wicket Close to existing Resident Parking Zone 2. “We put a huge amount of effort into this campaign,” said Ted. “We have spoken to both Charnwood and Leicestershire officers, have worked closely with the police and have attempted to persuade the University to take action. A survey of residents that we carried out revealed that virtually all of them favoured control parking and no one was opposed to the idea. When the scheme is implemented it will hopefully bring an end to dangerous and illegal parking in the close”.
