Chapmans Pond car park markings refreshed

The council has re-painted the faded white lines in the Chapmans Pond car park on Moor Lane. In addition, yellow crosshatch markings have been painted in front of the entrance to the pond area, to reduce the risk of motorists blocking access.

Chapmans Pond car park

Concerns have been raised about York College students using the car park for all-day parking, which reduces the spaces available for visitors to the pond and customers at the Love to Eat café. Cllr Stephen Fenton has raised this issue with the College.

An example of ‘problem parking’ is pictured below.


 

Thanet Road – proposal to extend 20mph zone

City of York Council is proposing to introduce a 20 mph speed limit on a section of Thanet Road, from the Gale Lane roundabout to St James Place. The proposal addresses safety concerns by requiring motorists to observe what are considered to be more appropriate speed limits on roads carrying high traffic volumes particularly during  peak traffic periods.

A map showing the proposed extent of the 20 mph zone is set out below.


Easter event success for Revival residents

Residents on the Revival estate off Tadcaster Road organised a terrific family Easter event on Good Friday. There was a treasure hunt with clues deposited around the estate, and an Easter bonnet competition with lots of fantastic entries.

Staff from Tesco Askham Bar were there to serve free refreshments and run an Easter egg decorating stall.

Many thanks to the Revival Community Association for their hard work to make this happen.
