Stop illegal parking on Westgate
Westgate in Huddersfield has been an illegal parking hotspot for years. Multiple complaints have been made to Kirklees council about this problem but unfortunately we are no further forward in terminating the problem. Often the illegal parking hot spot is cluttered with high end cars who do not see council traffic enforcement officers as a deterrent. The illegal parking issue forces pedestrians to walk into the road, backs up traffic on the ring road when buses can't get passed and encourages other drivers into oncoming traffic. We ask that something is done before a serious accident occurs. We ask that railings or flower beds are installed to stop cars illegally parking on the pavement in addition to installing hatching on the road to encourage cars to stop parking and blocking the road. This will promote road safety and encourage those who do illegally park to use the designated pay and display parking which is adequately available in and around the town centre.
