Council Debates Plan To Prevent Parking On Park Walk – Again

Shaftesbury Town Council has again discussed restricting motor vehicle access to Park Walk.

There are concerns about the safety of pedestrians when unauthorised drivers park on the promenade, which is a scheduled ancient monument. In October, councillors discussed stretching a chain across the roadway. That now appears to be off the agenda.

A resident has shared his solutions with the meeting. The Council will look into signage and placing a physical structure across Park Walk. But Tuesday’s council meeting heard that bureaucracy and regulations limit what the Town Council can do to tackle the problem.
