Could the owner of a grey Fiat Punto registration plate ST07 CCK please refrain from parking on the Topcliffe Road pavement. Despite there being a number of available car parking spaces available on the other side of the Sowerby Road ( see photo ) you are in breach of the highway code and as such a number of residents, families with pushchairs, elderly mobility scooter users and dog walkers are starting grow weary.


In short it is illegal to park on the pavement and this approach to parking will not be tolerated. Whether it is a vehicle for domestic pleasure or a commercial vehicle to aid the construction of the two new houses that have been proposed on Belgrave Terrace you are in breach of the law.

If anyone in the neighbourhood encounters further disruption as a consequence of this irresponsible and illegal parking could they please get in touch.
