Parked cars 'a hazard' claims ex-councillor
6:00pm Tuesday 29th October 2013 in Harwich and Manningtree News
A FORMER councillor claims cars parked on a busy road are creating a hazard for pedestrians and drivers.
It is legal to park near the alleyway to Dovercourt’s Mayflower Medical centre in Main Road, but John Brown claims the number of vehicles is now an accident waiting to happen.
“Cars parked just along from the mini-roundabout on Parkeston Road are really dangerous,” he said.
“Something has got to be done about this. I nearly had an accident this morning and it isn’t safe."
A North Essex Parking Partnership spokesman said: “The NEPP has recently been contacted about parking at this location and is in the early stages of gathering information.
“Working with the district council, all requests received are considered including gauging local community support for any potential proposals.”
