NEW parking restrictions come into operation in Hedon from tomorrow Thursday 15th October 2015.
Ward Councillor John Dennis explained that the restrictions have resulted from a lengthy process involving many meetings by the Ward Members, Hedon Town Councillors, and traffic and parking officers of the East Riding of Yorkshire Council.
“The project provides improvements to the restrictions from Church Lane in the west, across the town centre and out along Magdalen Lane in the east. A number of car-parking spaces in the central area have been sacrificed to ensure better traffic flow, for instance in Churchside and Magdalen Lane, but they have been replaced by increasing the numbers elsewhere, including, at the parking area outside the Church View Surgery on the Market Hill where all the spaces were unnecessarily wide, and all but two are now standard width.
“Residents should note that in the Market Place, and elsewhere, a number of the double yellow lines have been reinforced by double pavement bars, which upgrades the restriction to absolutely no stopping or loading, and that also includes delivery trucks and disabled badge holders, and people using the Bank cash machines.”
The Traffic Regulation Order will become effective on Thursday 15th October 2015. It will be fully enforceable from this date by the Civil Enforcement Officers.
