Witham: Residents hopeful of end to commuter parking woe
3:00pm Friday 14th September 2012 in News
Problems with cars blocking roads in a housing estate could finally be resolved after residents were promised a consultation.
The Moat Farm Estate is commonly used by rail commuters who park there before getting on a train at nearby Witham station.
Residents have complained that cars have blocked driveways and blocked access for emergency services and refuse vehicles.
A long-running campaign from residents has demanded the implementation of parking restrictions to solve the problem.
Now Essex County Council has promised residents a six-week consultation period to give their views ahead of the proposed scheme.
Chelmer Road resident Susan Ager, spokesman for the Moat Farm Residents’ Action Group, said: “We are absolutely delighted and it is a step in the right direction."
