The parish council would like to remind residents that parking in bus bays is illegal.
The Clerk has received reports that vehicles are being parked in bus bays on Churchway, particularly in the one opposite the Post Office.
Many residents think these stops are no longer used since the 280 bus was re-routed — however, this is not the case.
The school buses drop off and pick up from these bus stops, which are clearly designated bus bays.
Parking in these spaces is of concern at any time of the year, but during the Winter months it can be particularly hazardous for the school children, who are boarding and alighting in the dark.
It is an offence to park a private or commercial vehicle in a designated bus bay.
