Parking along Church Street

The Parish Council is currently looking at ways to improve road safety for both motorists and pedestrians in Church Street, between Mill Road and the junction with Newmarket Road, and is concerned about the hazard to traffic when cars are parked behind the pavement build out, (near the Crown pub) which reduces the width of the road to a single lane shared by traffic from both directions.

The Council has been advised that safety at this junction might be improved if parking was to be restricted between the “build out” and Mill Road. However in considering this matter the Council is keen to hear the views of Church Street residents and others that may be affected if such a scheme were to be introduced.

If you have views on parking and what might be done to improve road safety at this junction, please come to the next Parish Council meeting at the Ashley Pavilion on Monday 12th October at 7.30pm and have your say.

If you would prefer to express your views in writing please forward these to Chris Lewis (Parish Clerk), 2 Silhalls Close, Ashley or via e-mail to before 12th October.
