Brockley Cross parking - the Council response

Officer Number 1.0: Don't quote me regulations! I co-chaired the committee that reviewed the recommendation to revise the colour of the book that regulation's in. We kept it grey.

Following the stink BC readers have kicked up about illegal parking (particularly of vans) around Brockley Cross, the Council have been moved to issue this statement:

The Council is aware of some concerns locally about parking in Brockley Cross/Coulgate Street. Our parking enforcement attendants visit the area on a regular basis, to ensure that vehicles are not parking in contravention to the parking regulations. If they are not a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) will be issued.

The statement is pretty anodyne but at least it's progress of a sort. We're told that the Council does take the issue seriously - we hope to see some evidence of that and, ultimately, fewer illegally parked vehicles.
