Councillors Ashley Mason and Stephen Fenton canvassed opinion among residents of The Horseshoe over the weekend about how to tackle thoughtless and dangerous parking,
Access to the street is being hindered by non-residents parking up in The Horseshoe, off Tadcaster Road, and then going into town or perhaps to York College. The photograph below demonstrates the issues residents face.
Stephen and Ashley asked residents for their views on potential options such as extending the double yellow lines, or installing single yellow lines to prevent parking on the street on weekdays during working hours. This latter approach has been used on nearby Middlethorpe Drive.
Stephen commented “We got a lot of helpful feedback from the residents whom we spoke with. We are mindful of the risk of solving one problem but in doing so creating new problems, such as pushing commuter parking further into the street. That’s why we’re seeking residents’ views on this issue.”
