Cottingham Parish Council’s survey into the double yellow lines in Cottingham attracted 192 responses from villagers.
The headline results are as follows:
Of those who responded, 81 people want the lines to stay as they are, 42 want all or some of them removed and 69 want more lines, with the main locations for these being further down High Street (past No.2), outside the village shop and on the triangle outside the school. The majority (62%) of residents would like the lines to be painted paler and thinner to better blend with the conservation area, if they remain.
A working group of Parish Councillors has now been set up to consider all the survey results in detail, factoring in Northants County Council’s current financial situation, and formulate feasible recommendations to present to the full Parish Council. The Parish Council is also looking at ways to enforce the restrictions where parking on the existing lines is causing an obstruction, most notably at the top of Church Street on bin collection days.
