No response from council on illegal parking
11:52am Thursday 2nd August 2012 in Letters
I THOUGHT readers might like to know that if you are coming into Stockton Heath in the evening to visit one of the bars or restaurants, then you are quite welcome to park on the double yellow lines between St Thomas’ Church and the traffic lights at the Mulberry Tree pub.
The reason I know this is a perfectly acceptable thing to do is that I was under the impression that you could not park on double yellow lines, so I contacted Warrington Borough Council to ask why they allowed taxis to park on them every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings.
They said they would investigate and reply within five days.
Naturally they have done no such thing, so I can only assume that they consider this illegal parking not to be a problem, therefore to be fair to everyone, they will permit all and sundry to park on yellow lines
