The Pocklington double yellow lines is on the verge of turning into a fiasco.
First ERYC Statement
An ERYC officer has stated:
“There are no proposals at this time to change the position or number of lines in this location.”
Second ERYC Statement
Furthermore, in the Pocklngton Post online, a spokesman for East Riding of Yorkshire Council said:
“The lines in question are not double yellow lines, they are single yellow lines at either side of the parking bays and have been put down to reinforce the current parking restrictions in those bays on Market Place.
Drivers are using the bays as normal without any problem, and no complaints have been made to the council”.
I fully agree with ERYC when they state “ have been put down to reinforce the current parking restrictions in those bays on Market Place”.
Unfortunately with incorrect road markings parking restrictions cannot be enforced.
In football speak – an own goal.
Conservative Councillor Mole
This morning I was copied into an email from my fellow Ward Councillor for Pocklington Provincal Claude Mole who stated:
“A number of Pocklington residents are getting excited and confused, including myself I must add, by the appearance of double yellow lines in the parking bays opposite Barclays Bank.”
I fully agree with this statement.
Common Sense Must Prevail
I have sent an email to the relevent ERYC officers to request that common sense prevails and the double yellow lines are removed.
