Shaftesbury Town Council Rejects Plan For Summer Car Park At Cockrams

Shaftesbury Town councillors have rejected a proposal to allow car parking temporarily on the field at Cockrams, next to Shaftesbury Youth Club.

Around 40 parking spaces are currently out-of-use because the unofficial parking area next to the redundant toilet block near Tesco is closed. That area is being used by contractors fitting the artificial pitch at Shaftesbury FC.

The pitch-laying should be complete at the end of July and then crew will start transforming that space into a pay car park.
