Parking on Fore Street: trial scheme continues to be supported by parish council

April 18th 2022

From 1 January 2022, a new trial method of parking in Fore Street, Tregony started. Drivers parking on the north side of the street from just below the Londis shop (outside no. 63, by the archway) to the steps outside the old antiques shop (no. 57) were encouraged to park at an angle to the pavement in order to create more parking spaces.

The parish council said that it would review how the scheme was working after 3 months and the matter was discussed at the council meeting on 11 April. Some residents attended the meeting and spoke in the public session against the scheme and suggested that it should revert to conventional parking at the end of this trial. However, other residents had contacted the parish council by email prior to the meeting and many of these were in favour of continuing with the parking at an angle. It was also noted that the fact that a clear majority of motorists parking on this section of Fore Street were choosing to park at an angle was a good indication of their support for the scheme.

The parish councillors felt that, on balance, the merits of the trial scheme outweighed the disadvantages and resolved that the council would continue to support the scheme and would look at the matter again in another 6 months.
