Over 100 comments have inundated the online community website StreetLife.  The contributors have largely been in support of the decision to close the Vineries gates.


This initiative follows the closing of other car parks off Lower Road such as the Roman Catholic Church and Royal British Legion car parks.  Students’ cars have in the past apparently caused users of these premises to be pushed out onto the road. Other car parks are still in use at the KGV and local pubs but The Street and Church Street are becoming more congested at certain times of the day.


Is this the time to introduce a voluntary tidal one-way system during drop-off and pick-up times?
