Owing to the major problem of parking in the Vicarage Road, Park Road and Beaumont Road areas a majority of residents have voted in favour of a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ). This will come into force in June and will operate Monday to Saturday 8am to 6.30pm.
Local Liberal Democrat campaigner Bob Sullivan said, "The fact that residents voted in favour of a CPZ does not come as a surprise as these spread very quickly. Once some roads have one, all the nearby roads suffer from parking problems. To enable residents to park their cars in their road they are forced to agree to a CPZ. This latest one will now affect Goldsmith Road, Oliver Close and the roads off Church Road which do not have a CPZ."
