Somerset’s traffic engineers have refused a request to use double yellow lines to control parking at the bottom of Buckwell. Residents are angry at cars that block their drives and sometimes stay for days.
“This is a pretty disappointing response,” commented Cllr Ross Henley. “Buckwell residents have a lot of problems with parking but unfortunately on the day SCC engineers visited there were very few cars.”
However, there are to be new yellow lines on the bend at the bottom of Priory where lorries heading to the industrial estate or Waitrose have blocked the road trying to negotiate parked cars.
