Path to be closed

Middlesbrough Herald & Post - - HERALD & POST -

A foot­path is to be closed off to pre­vent “in­con­sid­er­ate” par­ents from park­ing at shel­tered ac­com­mo­da­tion while drop­ping off and col­lect­ing their chil­dren.

Thir­teen group is work­ing jointly with Stock­ton Coun­cil to block a foot­path on Naseby Court in Billing­ham, just a stone’s throw away from Bew­ley Pri­mary School.

It comes af­ter the res­i­dents of the shel­tered hous­ing com­plained about “in­con­sid­er­ate park­ing and re­strict­ing ac­cess to res­i­dents”, which on one oc­ca­sion pre­vented ac­cess to emer­gency ser­vices.

“Due to these is­sues the mat­ter needs ad­dress­ing ASAP and works are planned to start in Au­gust 2017,” reads the plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion, which was granted per­mis­sion in just three days.

As a re­sult, a 6ft timber fence is set to be in­stalled across the open­ing, which is be­tween 10 and 12 Naseby Court, to pre­vent ac­cess through to Bew­ley Pri­mary School.

A spokesper­son for Thir­teen said: “We have had to take this ac­tion to en­sure that the older res­i­dents at Naseby Court are not af­fected by in­con­sid­er­ate car park­ing.

“We are pleased that Stock­ton Coun­cil has worked with us to al­le­vi­ate this prob­lem.”
