Holbeach Parish Council is to ask for an ambulance bay to be provided for people living in Browne Wilkinson Walk, Holbeach St Marks.

Holbeach Parish Council is taking up requests for an ambulance bay to be created in a village neighbourhood amid concerns over parked vehicles.

People living in Browne Wilkinson Walk, Holbeach St Marks, want a dedicated parking space to prevent parents and staff at the nearby primary school from making it difficult for paramedics to reach patients.

The issue was discussed at a parish council meeting last week where members agreed to write to Lincolnshire Rural Housing Association, which owns a number of homes in Browne Wilkinson Walk, for permission to mark an ambulance bay out in the residents’ car park.

Coun Paul Foyster said: “About a month ago, I was contacted by one of the residents who was complaining about a time when an ambulance turned up for someone who needs one quite often.

“The person had to be taken down the road in a wheelchair because the ambulance had nowhere to go as there were cars parked opposite the school.

“I want an ambulance bay marked out, either on the road or the car park, so ambulances would be able to park in Browne Wilkinson Walk.

“I’ve seen this in other parts parts of Lincolnshire so if it can be done there, why can’t it be done here?”
