Yellow lines have been painted in Barnoldswick’s Victory Park to prevent indiscriminate parking by workers at a local manufacturing plant.

“Hopefully, the lining scheme will prevent Rolls-Royce’s Bankfield site workers from blocking the park’s entrances,” said Coun David Whipp, chairman the West Craven Area Committee.

“Rolls-Royce provide a shuttle bus from their car park at Ghyll Brow, where there’s plenty of space, so there’s 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.”
