CATG Action / Recommendation


The following issue was raised with the Town Council by a local resident.....Can anything be done to prevent cars parkingdriving on the grass verges and causing damage Pleasant environments are being destroyed by this thoughtlessness or dont care attitudes. Also recent drainage works took place along Awdry Avenue Id like to praise the contractors who did this work and put right any damage that occurred. However since their departure the grass verges along Awdry Avenue are being damaged by buses and careless drivers who cannot be bothered to slow down sufficiently enough to negotiate the corner and parked cars which are parking closer and closer to the junction since the double yellow lines disappeared due to the drainage works. It would be great if these yellow lines could be reinstated and possibly lengthened. Hopefully something can be done fairly quickly to preserve the disappearing grass verges.
