More than 80 people have responded to a survey on residents’ parking in the area of Redcross Street in Grantham.

The survey was started by county councillor Ray Wootten after he received a number of complaints from people in the area about ‘inconsiderate parking’.

Coun Wootten said that following complaints from residents living in Redcross Street, Alford Street and nearby streets, the area was identified as being suitable for a residents’ parking scheme.

He added that such a scheme would only go forward with the approval of the majority of residents, and without their support it will not be considered. So far, 83 survey forms have been completed and returned. Of those, 84 per cent stated that they are in favour of a scheme.

Coun Wootten said: “Thank you to those residents who have completed their surveys, but I would ask those who have not done so to return them to SKDC as soon as possible or call me and I will collect them.”

Comments received from residents include: “There is no specific problem”, “I have no car, but in favour”, “I blame lazy parents” and “a permit system would be good”.

Coun Wootten said the area was chosen for a number of reasons, including the high number of non-residents parking there and the fact that residents do not have any off-road parking.

Redcross Street and Alford Street are in one of the oldest parts of Grantham.

If any residents wish to discuss the matter with Coun Wootten they can contact him on 01476 400183 or email CllrR.Wootten@lincolnshire.gov.uk
