Have your say

A parish council in Leeds has launched a bid to clamp down on inconsiderate parking in residential streets.

Alwoodley Parish Council has written to people in The Avenue and surrounding areas to address the ”frequent congestion and numerous cases of inconsiderate parking that leaves many roads in chaos”.

It is now asking locals to share - anonymously - their stories and concerns so that a plan of action can be devised.

A notice from the authority says: “Many of you work diligently to keep the verges outside your homes looking attractive, mowing them, planting flowers and shrubs...to discourage people parking on the grass. Sometimes in vain! Armed with detailed evidence we are in a better position to talk to the organisations or groups who cause these problems.”
