Loss of parking space
You may have noticed that the 30-minute parking bay in front of the One-Stop on Forest Road has disappeared. The contractor has painted white hatches over the existing parking bay. I approached Nick Baldwin at Tunbridge Wells Borough Council and he responded as follows:
A contractor’s error I’m afraid. They were instructed to remark the existing lines but have got it wrong somehow. We will ensure that they return to correct this as soon as possible but, in the meantime, anybody who parks adjacent to the kerb and doesn’t obstruct the tactile paving is committing no offence. Double parking is of course still a contravention so a PCN can be issued for that.
My apologies for the error and thank you for pointing it out.
As of this morning, 27 September 2017, the hatched area has been blacked out where the parking bay was. Hopefully, a more permanent solution will be forthcoming.
