Parking On Verges

Parking on verges in the village.

The Parish Council receives a number of complaints on this issue every year.  Unfortunately it has no power to stop residents & their visitors parking on the verges & pavements in & around Trowell.  Complaints are duly referred to Nottinghamshire County Council for attention but in these times of austerity there is little or no money available to reinstate grass verges damaged by vehicle traffic.  In addition to that, the parked vehicles are often left in positions that impede pedestrian traffic forcing people to walk through mud or worse still in the road.

 

The Parish Council would therefore like to encourage residents & visitors alike to refrain from parking on the verges around the village & help make the village a more attractive & safer place to live & work.
