A meeting of councillors next week could see the end of unlimited parking on London Road next to the retail park where B&Q and M&S are located.

Cars are parked on the busy road throughout the day where there are no restrictions on the west side. Lincolnshire County Council is proposing introducing single and double yellow lines to prevent cars parking along that side of the road for safety reasons.

LCC Highways Manager Mark Heaton said: “It has been noted that the parked vehicles along London Road, especially in the vicinity of the London Road Industrial Estate, cause both inconvenience and visibility problems for vehicles exiting the retail park.”

The council is proposing no waiting at any time south of the London Road retail park and no waiting between 6am and 6pm. Monday to Friday, north of the entrance to the park.

The proposals will be brought before the Planning and Regulation Committee on Monday, February 15.

The proposals are outlined on the county council’s website.
