Prohibition of Verge and Pavement Parking (Traffic Regulation Order)TRO
Implement the Prohibition of Verge and Pavement Parking (Traffic Regulation Order)TRO on the estate of Ashland MK6
Why is this important?
The residents on Ashland have had issues with people parking their cars inconsiderately for a long time now.
This causes problems to people who are either with pushchairs or have to use mobility aids to gain access to the pathways around the estate estate leaving them vulnerable to be hit by a car when they have to go on the road to pass a car parked illegally.
We also have a huge issue whenever there are football matches or other events on at the stadium MK, where people park on footpath‘s, blocking people‘s driveways or on the corner of roads and verges.
This is becoming dangerous and there have been so many near misses to the most vulnerable who live on our estate. Pavements are not designed to have cars half or fully parked on, this will eventually cause the pavements to break and potholes appear. The estate has been built with adequate parking. Parking in a footpath is illegal either half or fully is illegal. So we are requesting that the council put in the regulation to stop this issue. So we can live in a safe estate.
