Change To Waiting Restrictions on West End

If you have been along West End you may have spotted some new line markings and parking changes there. This is part of a long awaited programme of work requested by the Town Council, in consultation with West End residents and supported financially by County Councillor Paul Hodgkinson.

Attached is the order from Gloucestershire County Council explaining the background to the work. The idea developed to allow better movement of traffic whilst being as safe as possible. Please note that no parking spaces have been lost (in fact a few have been gained) and there are more passing places along the stretch to enable traffic to move more easily and alleviate the bottlenecks experienced.

Kind regards,
Cat Crompton
Clerk, Northleach with Eastington Town Council

Update: The Town Council is aware that the extent of the markings in front of The Old Forge does not match the order. We hope to resolve this as a matter of urgency.

Parking in the Town

The Town Council is receiving complaints from Gloucestershire Highways that their salting lorry cannot get through the main route though the Town because cars are parked on double yellow lines between the Wheatsheaf Hotel and the Market Place AT NIGHT and blocking the road.

If you are aware of anyone parking on these yellow lines at night, please could you bring to their attention:

  • It is illegal
  • CDC Parking Enforcement and the Police have been alerted to the problem
  • The road may not be gritted / salted overnight
  • The snow plough may not be able to operate
  • And we hope they will not require an emergency vehicle in a hurry !
