Off street parking

Complaints about the lack of parking spaces on housing estates across Harlow was a very common one heard by members of HAP when out and about talking to residents before the recent Council elections.

The Council recently announced that it was to commence a programme of providing new off street parking and would invite residents to contact them with suggestions as to where such parking spaces could be constructed.

HAP welcomes this initiative and would encourage our readers to contact the Council if they have any such suggestions to make. There will obviously be some areas where residents might object to the proposals or where for physical reasons it is not possible to provide such spaces, however any scheme that is successful in making it both easier and safer to park must be most welcome.
