5.

QUESTIONS, REPRESENTATIONS AND STATEMENTS OF CASE

Any questions, representations and statements of case submitted in accordance with the Council’s procedures will be reported.

 

Mr Vaitha to ask:

 

It seems as though there are cars parked illegally on
Narborough Road (between Upperton Road and Hinckley Road).

Nothing seems to be done. There do not appear to be parking tickets on the illegally parked cars although a few parking wardens can be seen walking on Narborough Road.

The illegally parked cars are causing Traffic jams and it takes twice the time to get past Narborough road.

I suggest that the Narborough Road area (between Upperton Road and Hinckley Road) becomes a ‘Red Zone’.

6.
