Improvement of Safety and Parking in Dovecote PE10 0SY
Dovecote Residents..... With reference to Parking issues and Safety concerns within Dovecote, Since the construction of Dovecote in the 1950’s many things have changed and today’s modern lifestyle more than ever requires People to be Car Owners to live in a Village, when Dovecote was built I doubt many of the residents owned a Car, however in recent years this has changed considerably and many families in Dovecote now own a Car or even more than one Car. It is obvious that Dovecote was not designed to cope with the amount of Cars that require parking spaces, it is particularly noticeable along the side of the Green which has become a bottle neck where two way traffic is not possible and on many occasions Gas and Oil Lorries and other HGV’s have to resort to mounting the Pavement to access properties further in the Close, also the Green attracts Children to play and often Children are in the road or running in-between Cars, so far it’s only been a matter of luck that no one has been seriously injured or killed. The problem also increases greatly at Weekends and Holidays when Family and Friends come to visit residents. Indeed clear access is of the utmost importance for the Fire Brigade or Ambulance Service should it ever be required in an Emergency. Many of the Owners and residents of the Properties around the Green feel that it is now time for the Council to take action to alleviate this issue before it’s too late. What is required is a reduction in the size of the Green and the possible widening of the Road and an increase in the size of the Residents Car Park, if nothing is done the situation will only get worse in the future causing problems for all Dovecote Residents. Can we please ask that you support a planned Petition that is to be put forward to the Council asking for action to be taken on resolving this issue .
