Following our petition to tackle problematic double parking on the Wokingham Road near to the shops and Alfred Sutton school, handed in by Green councillor Josh Williams, a report came back to the Traffic Committee recently – item 7 on the linked to agenda webpage.
There was both some positive and negative in there. In summary even though the double parking is dangerous in most cases it is not illegal.
However the Council has committed to conducting a review of the parking restrictions in the area starting in September.
We will keep working to improve road safety and create a more pleasant environment for walkers and cyclists.
