one-hour parking restriction comes into force in Burnham-On-Sea
new one hour parking time limit is being introduced in Burnham-On-Sea
town centre in an effort to make the town more 'shopper friendly'.
new one-hour maximum parking restriction is being introduced this
week across the town centre, excluding The Esplanade and car parks,
by Somerset County Council in a bid to standardise street parking
comes after residents complained about the confusing mix of 15-minute,
30-minute and 1-hour parking restrictions in force in different
areas of the town.
exceptions to the one hour will be for disabled motorists and
areas such as Victoria Street, where post office visitors will
continue to see shorter time limits to maximise the number of
parking spaces available.
Michael Clarke, who led the Town Council committee that proposed
the new regulations, told Burnham-On-Sea.com this week: "There
are many different parking restrictions in force at the moment
across the town centre that make it confusing for motorists."
hope that introducing an hour's limit across much of the town
will make it simpler for visitors and increase the amount of parking
spaces available during the daytime."
number of disabled spaces along the High Street is also set to
be reduced with spaces moving into the side streets instead to
free up more spaces.
Clarke added: "It's the first step of a number of improvements
for the town centre over the coming year and a half."
