Think before you park!

Gotham Parish Council regularly receive complaints from residents about thoughtless, often illegal parking around the village.  Over recent months there has been an increase in comments about the parking around Gotham Primary School when parents (including Gotham residents) are dropping off and collecting their children.

This road is one of the main entrances to the village and even with the traffic calming measures in place, it is a dangerous area when visibility is hampered by parked cars.  Pedestrians trying to cross Kegworth Road cannot be seen in between parked cars and children especially, cannot see oncoming vehicles.

Unfortunately the Parish Council can do nothing more than refer the matter to the Police and once more the matter is raised with them.  If you wish to complain about parking matters please contact the local Police officer, Kelly Warwick.  But also think before you park.

Do you need to drive your children to School?  Why not walk instead?

Remember that if you park on the footway, or part of it, or block a dropped kerb, the Police can issue a fixed fine.
