The new Resident Parking Scheme will come into effect on Monday 21st July.
You will notice a number of metered parking bays (pay & display) outside the shop. You are able to park here for 30 minutes FREE OF CHARGE, after which you will pay £1 an hour for up to 3 hours.
Parking meters will be in operation Monday-Friday, 9am – 5pm. They will not operate on public or bank holidays.
Mike, the owner of Wild Oats, is currently in conversation with the George Ferguson and the relevant authorities to make the following changes to the scheme, which we hope will make things easier for you. We are arguing for the following changes to be actioned:
- convert one loading bay into 3-4 more metered parking bays
- convert a greater number of resident parking bays outside local businesses into metered parking bays
- tighten metered parking bays to accommodate extra pay & display spaces
