Crowland Parish Council to consider three-hour parking limits for two town centre streets




A new, three-hour time limit on parking in parts of Crowland is being considered to ease congestion in the town.

Crowland Parish Council is asking people for their views on restricted parking in North Street and West Street.

If adopted, the time restriction would be in place from Mondays to Saturdays, between 9am and 6pm.

The proposal emerged after a driver of Stagecoach's 37 Spalding-Peterborough bus service was blocked in by a car near the bus stop West Street two months ago.

As a result, the driver went knocking on residents' doors to try and find the car owner whose poor parking prevented the bus from turning into West Street itself.

A statement from Crowland Parish Council published in this month's town magazine said: "The parish council is aware of the growing problems of parking in North Street and West Street.

"To alleviate the situation, we are looking at restricting parking to three hours only between 9am and 6pm, Monday to Saturday.

"In North Street, this would be from Trinity Bridge to Hollywood Hair Studio, and from Trinity Bridge to The Crown pub in West Street.

"This is only a proposal and no decision will be made without full consultation.

"However, residents living in these areas would be offered a parking permit."
