Walton: Criticism for coach drivers parking in restricted zones
2:00pm Tuesday 27th August 2013 in News
RESIDENTS have criticised coach drivers for parking in restricted zones in Walton.
Signs are in place at the top of the road to stop drivers parking there, but there are no warnings further down the road.
And coaches have been parking along the roadside in Naze Park Road after dropping their passengers off.
Councillor Terry Allen said: “We clearly have the enforcement officers in the area because drivers are constantly targeted in Connaught Avenue.
“A coach takes up four or five spaces along the roadside and it is a monstrosity parked in front of someone’s house.”
Mr Allen called for a hotline to be put in place so illegal parking can be reported to enforcement agents.
Frinton and Walton Town Council plans to write to coach companies, as well as contacting Essex County Council regarding the signage.
