Outstanding Questions

  1. Who authorised the work?
  2. How much has the original work cost?
  3. How much has it cost deal with the issues raised?
  4. How much will it cost to put the work back to the original?

Dear Mr Strangeway
I refer to your complaint reference 92595, regarding the width of bay marking’s in Pocklington Market Street.
The bay marking’s on Market Street, Pocklington have recently been amended to create additional parking spaces. For on street parking all parking space measurements are taken from The Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions 2002. There are various ways in which the bays can be laid out and the regulations provide for a tolerance in the width of bay between a minimum of 1.8m and a maximum of 2.7m. Although the size of the parking bay is within the legal requirement, due to concerns raised we will arrange to amend the width to what it was previously, 2m.
Thank you for drawing this matter to my attention and I hope the amended width when implemented will help to address your concern.
