Inconsiderate Gold Hill Parking Putting Lives At Risk Says Shaftesbury Town Council

Drivers who park on the narrow section of Gold Hill are blocking access for emergency vehicle.

Tuesday’s Shaftesbury Town Council meeting heard that an ambulance was recently unable to pass parked cars, so a patient had to be airlifted to hospital. Alfred has been unable to verify where and when this happened.

Visitor parking is adding to the problem, according to councillors. The Town Council will write to residents and holiday let owners.
