Frinton: Clampdown promise on anti-social parking

First published in News

RESIDENTS hope to see new rules put in place to prevent chaotic parking at Frinton Greensward during the summer season.

This summer saw cars parked in a variety of illegal positions as visitors flocked to the sunshine coast to enjoy the sizzling weather.

Frinton Residents Association honorary secretary Jeanette Phillips said: “We have seen parking across driveways, on pavements and on corners obstructing the visibility of other drivers.

“There have also been instances of obstructing dropped kerbs and parking on the Greensward itself, damaging the grass.

“This just cannot be tolerated.”

Frinton Residents Association has now met with Tendring Council and police representatives to discuss the problem.

They took them on a brief tour of the Greensward and promenade areas, pointing out the main issues.

The authorities have committed to taking action to prevent a similar situation next summer.

Can we have the same sort of action in Walton as anti-social parking is rife during holiday season and out of it.

Both the police and TDC have turned a blind eye to this problem for years resulting in the issues we now have across the entire District - despite what they now say, I have no confidence whatsoever that they will do anything about it.

The vast majority of visitors to Walton are forced to pay to park their cars. Isn't it time that the same rules applied to Frinton. As it is all visitors to Frinton turn up with their cars full of their provisions for the day, spend nothing with the local traders and park free. Charge them to park along the Greensward area and this income would both help reduce the rates and reduce the number of free-loaders who visit the town.
