Liz supports residents’ bid for better parking



Last week I met with residents on Eileen Avenue, off Abbey Lane, to receive a petition asking the Council to put double yellow lines on their street.

Mussa Limbada, Ali Hussaini and Harshid Sutaria told me they are really fed up with the problems caused by vehicles parking at the junction leading into their street, which is a cul-de-sac. This makes it really difficult for people to park outside their homes, and has stopped refuge trucks from collecting rubbish. Residents are also concerned that ambulances or fire engine could struggle to gain access to parts of the street in the event of an emergency.

I’ll be working with local Abbey Ward Councillors Annette Byrne, Vijay Riyait and Harshad Bhavsar to get the Council to introduce double yellow lines on the street at the earliest possible opportunity. You can read more about this issue here.
