Double Yellow Lines

The issue of Double Yellow Lines has become an issue in several parts of Twerton in recent months

The law states that the double yellow must apply from the centre line of the road to the property boundary so the Council have no discretion on that but to enforce any parking infringement.

The Council have stepped up its enforcement through efficiency gains and it is unearthing a few of these type of problems which in the past have gone unenforced.

We have arranged a meeting with officers of the council next week to resolve some of the anomalies that have been unearthed and a resolution to the problem will be consulted upon with residents before being put into place.

The main area that this has been a problem is Poolemead Road where we are also resolving other issues and we hope that we can resolve these problems.
