A CONSULTATION to address problem parking in Abbots Bromley is set to be launched.

A formal consultation to combat the parking issues that Abbots Bromley have faced for so long will be launched by Staffordshire County Council on December 20.

Residents will get the opportunity to speak to members of the council to make their voices heard on the parking problems in the village so that the county council can formulate their plan of action to get the village parking under control.

County councillor Mark Winnington, cabinet member for economy and infrastructure said: “We are aware of the issues around parking in the town and are keen to see a solution as soon as possible.

“Since the scheme was prioritised by the local joint parking committee, highways officers and local councillors have carried out an informal consultation with the parish council and residents that are immediately affected by the issues.

“The next stage is to undertake a formal consultation to gather views from all relevant parties.

“The proposals will be advertised in the local press and on site, and we hope to start this process later in the month.”

The announcement follows one resident’s concerns over bus parking near junctions in the village.

Nathan Parker recently spoke out of his frustration at the ‘illegal’ parking of buses near junctions in the village.

Parking has been an ongoing issue for the village as certain parts of the Uttoxeter Road are made one-way due to a lack of off-road residential parking.

Parking on blind bends also continues to plague villagers including cars parked on the corner next to The Goat, in Market Place continues to be an issue.
