Complaints over parking in Broadgreen
9:20am Thursday 14th March 2013 in News
POLICE officers have seen a recent escalation in complaints about parking obstructions around the Broadgreen area.
Officers, along with PCSOs and Swindon Council traffic wardens, have been carrying out an operation to address the concerns.
Despite a number of warning letters sent to the registered keepers of vehicles identified as causing obstructions, complaints have continued about the problem. Issues are mainly based around the obstruction of alleyways, parking within 10 metres of a junction, driving on footpaths and parking on double yellow lines.
Yesterday, patrols resulted in the issuing of 10 tickets for a combination of offences.
