Safety Fears Eased after Council agrees to Extra Parking Spaces

Road safety fears in a Westhead cul-de-sac will be eased after Adrian worked with residents to propose an Environmental Improvement scheme which has now received approval from the Borough Council.

Adrian was approached by residents of council bungalows on Holly Close concerned about the lack of off-street parking which had caused access problems for ambulances in emergencies and poor visibility of pedestrians especially children playing in the area.

Working with the residents, Adrian drafted a plan for ten additional off street car parking spaces utilising land in front of the bungalows and submitted it to the council’s Environmental Improvement Budget for consideration.

Adrian said “I’m delighted that the council has now agreed to fund these improvements with special thanks to Cllr Patterson who immediately understood the case that we were making. Additional off street parking will benefit the whole of Holly Close as on street parking will be reduced. All council properties on Holy Close will have off street parking after this improvement and providing car parking at this and other sheltered schemes will sustain demand for our sheltered properties.”

The works will take place this year and officers have started preparatory planning.
