Illegal parking looked into

THE COUNCIL has said it is investigating illegal lorry parking in Hallam Fields Road after residents raised concerns in last week’s Advertiser.

Scott Cartledge, Erewash Borough Council’s neighbourhood warden manager, said he has been working hard to resolve the problem.

“We have been in contact with a company whose vehicles have been seen parking illegally at this site and civil enforcement officers will be patrolling the area and will take action against those who continue to ignore the restrictions,” he said.

“We are liaising with Derbyshire County Council and the police and I know police officers have also visited businesses in the area to ask them to remind their drivers to park safely and properly.”

He added: “Parking illegally and on pavements is both inconsiderate and often dangerous.”
