Hallfields lane parking concerns………

Hallfields Lane

Do you live along Hallfields Lane? Do you think that there is a problem with the way some cars park?

A couple of residents have recently contacted me, and said that it’s become a real problem, with anti social parking on Hallfields Lane.

Given that Hallfields Lane has a shop, a School, a Community Centre and a Recreational Area on it, it’s no surprise that it is well used by pedestrians.

Some of the reports from residents have included concerns about cars parking on the pavement and also obstructing crossing points.

If you have a view or comment on this then please do post it below!
