HAPHAZARD PARKING ARRANGEMENTS/SECURITY MEASURES

We the undersigned petition the council to implement a single yellow line restriction in Winnington Road, effective during the hours of 11:00am and 12noon, between the golf course and house numbers 80 to 84 and the two extremes of Ingram Avenue by Wildwood Road and by Winnington Road, on an experimental/temporary basis, to see if it alleviates the ‘Long Stay’ parking issues and the impacts of that, thereafter.”

What may have started as a somewhat untidy arrangement, whereby cars and commercial vans are parked for months on end in Winnington Road, it would now appear that this may have inadvertently contributed to a major security problem in this road and, as such, residents are being attacked and now feel vulnerable and unprotected, which has become intolerable.

Very often, 3 or more vans from the same company are amongst the parking abusers, which frankly is now ‘Treasure Island’ for them.

Over the last few years, there has been a significant increase in personal attacks and muggings in the road, and a few examples of these are detailed below. The gangs responsible for this (apparently are known to the police) are becoming ever more audacious and brazen with their dastardly deeds and according to an independent security firm, they use the parked commercial vans as camouflage and this parking problem may well have actively contributed to the unacceptable state of affairs.


This ePetition runs from 27/11/2019 to 08/01/2020.
