Parking Problems
Parking problems at Trimdon GrangeThere have been a number of complaints raised regarding the parking of vehicles at the junction of the B1278 Salters Lane and Kielder Drive near to the Community Centre. You are advised that the Highway Code states do not park opposite or within 10 metres (32 feet) of a junction, except in an authorised parking space. Remember we would rather educate than penalise and the safety of road users and pedestrians has to be a priority. Please do not park or cause any obstructions to other road users or pedestrians, failure to adhere can result in a fixed penalty notice being issued.
This matter is being dealt with by: Pc1636 John Seymour & PCSO 7354 Taylor
