Car parking in the village

When parking your car please think

  • Who may need access to a driveway?
  • Is the street wide enough at this section of the road?
  • Do I need to park on this footpath preventing pedestrians using it adequately?
  • Is the car too close to a junction?

It is difficult when many of our homes were built before cars, but we should be considerate of each other wherever we can.
