As a long standing resident I strongly support SCC’s proposals to end angled parking in the High Street and on Shepherds Hill and would like to see the end of kerbside parking in West Street and Weyhill which effectively ensures unnecessary congestion for my motoring friends and bad conditions for pedestrians (eg the narrow footway by the West street post office). Cyclists and bikers overtaking the parked line of vehicles wide enought to avoid opening doors,generally have to ride head to head with oncoming vehicles (any thing from an artic lorry to sports cars).
SCC’s failure to reduce the town centre speed limit to 20MPH as I understand as been done in Chichester and Portsmouth is beginning to look like corporate sloth in County Hall.
