Letter: University - contribution intended for no parking order

Re Ashburn Road, Scarborough no-waiting area:

Coventry University contributed to the cost of the no parking order. The problem is that there is no order that authorises the no-waiting cones!

The council quotes regulation 64 of the Road Traffic Act which allows for the suspension of existing parking.

Ashburn Road does not have any parking restrictions so they would have to follow the rules for prohibition, and they haven’t as confirmed by the council and highways at Northallerton.

I’m not bothered about the parking issue it’s just more of the same and any tickets issued should be contested.

But where has the £20,000 from Coventry University been spent?

According to the council’s notes from July it was for the expense of the parking.
