Parking in the spotlight

PONTELAND Town Council will take its own look into parking arrangements and regulations.

Although there are no charges to stop at the public car parks in the area, there are time restrictions and other issues include yellow lines and enforcement.

Therefore, as a result of Northumberland County Council giving town and parish councils a greater say about parking, the Ponteland authority’s highways working party will discuss these matters in detail.

The full council will then decide if it should make any recommendations for changes or new measures to the county council.
