Hollybush Parking Restrictions
Extract from Letter from SDC Chief Executive:
As you may be aware, the new arrangements are being implemented in response to requests from a number of organisations that use or are based at the recreation ground, for the Council to address the problem of long stay commuter and local worker parking at the recreation ground.
I was sorry to hear of the concerns over the potential detrimental effect that these arrangements could have to the bowls club and its members and guests. In responding to your concerns, it may be helpful to explain the way that these restrictions are intended to work, and the arrangements we are proposing to address long stay commuter and worker parking, to accommodate the needs of clubs and organisations at the recreation ground, while minimising disruption and complication.
Firstly, unless complaints are received or problems arise, there are no plans to carry out enforcement of vehicles exceeding the 4 hour maximum stay on weekends and in the evenings. If an organisation's staff, members and guests want to park for longer than 4 hours, for example for a match or a special event, they can notify the parking team of this in advance and we can suspend enforcement that day. Another option is that clubs can issue their own permits or badges to their members and guests, providing samples of these to the parking team, so the traffic wardens can then be asked not to enforce these vehicles when they park for longer than 4 hours. Out of bay yellow line will be enforced at all times, to ensure access to and from the parking areas.
