Yellow lines put down at Victory Park, Barnoldswick

Craven Herald: Councillor David Whipp Councillor David Whipp

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.”

Does making them park much more prettily remove the quantified risk or for that matter any of the cars parked in the area?
Why were the lines only applied to one side?
Why was nothing done about the 'foreseen' overspill out onto West Close Road?
How come there are no mother and baby parking spots allocated?
Where should the disabled park? On the double yellow lines?
Why should the community suffer access to it's own park for the sake of a few individuals who don't respect the fact that the park belongs to the town, not just to these employees?
