Parking vehicles on the footpath

It has come to our notice that there are still some residents in the village, on the main Down Ampney road, that continue to park vehicles on the footpath.

This has led to one of our severely disable resident, who is blind, being somewhat distressed by walking into a car and then having to negotiate traversing onto the road.

May we remind you that it is ILLEGAL to park, or obstruct the footpath, and the Parish Council will inform the police to take action.
There is nothing wrong in parking on the road. In fact this is beneficial as it tends to slow speeding traffic.
