Is­sue af­fects us too

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Murray Spooner

Half­way and District Bowl­ing Club have re­sponded to claims visi­tors to their greens are caus­ing park­ing prob­lems in Cam­bus­lang.

A res­i­dent at a Half­way Com­mu­nity Coun­cil meet­ing told how ve­hi­cle own­ers parked their cars along Mill Road, across from her home, which forced pedes­tri­ans to walk on the road to get past.

The is­sue was first alerted to lo­cal police at the com­mu­nity coun­cil meet­ing on May 17.

The res­i­dent said: “We need to en­cour­age them to use the park­ing up the back be­cause there was some­thing on at the club on a Saturday night and it was chaos.

“If they parked up the back it would free up spa­ces for res­i­dents who live there.”

Au­drey Stod­dart, sec­re­tary at Half­way and District Bowl­ing Club, con­firmed the area’s com­mu­nity cops had spo­ken to mem­bers about park­ing is­sues.

She said: “Half­way and District Bowl­ing Club are aware of park­ing is­sues near our club premises on Mill Road.

“This is­sue has arisen as a re­sult of new flats be­ing built nearby and sub­se­quent ten­ants or visi­tors park­ing ve­hi­cles on the road.

“This is­sue is also af­fect­ing our club due to cars parked too close to our rear ac­cess lane. These parked cars for­bid the bin lorry gain­ing ac­cess to empty our bins.

“The coun­cil foot­ball park over re­cent years is more and more in de­mand by lo­cal teams and as there is no park­ing fa­cil­ity, peo­ple park on the road.

“We al­low peo­ple to use our car park which al­le­vi­ates the prob­lem dur­ing our closed sea­son but dur­ing April to Septem­ber our own mem­bers also use the car park.

“Visi­tors to our bowl­ing club are those who par­tic­i­pate in very well es­tab­lished tour­na­ments and are aware we hav­ing park­ing fa­cil­i­ties at the rear of the club.”
