Erewash MP Maggie Throup has backed the residents of Lord Haddon Road and Wharncliffe Road (Ilkeston), in their campaign to persuade Derbyshire County Council to introduce a parking permit scheme in the area.
In her latest efforts, Maggie recently convened a public meeting which was attended by campaigners living in on the roads together with Councillors’ Sue Beardsley, Mary Hopkinson and Tony King, where a number of potential parking options were discussed.
Following the meeting Maggie commented:
“Despite the level of support for the introduction of a parking permit scheme and my persistent lobbying on behalf of the residents of both Lord Haddon Road and Wharncliffe Road, I am extremely disappointed that Derbyshire County Council, which is the responsible Authority for street parking, has yet to resolve the issue.
“The meeting today has been a great opportunity to collect the views of residents, which I will now feed back to the Lead Member for Highways at the County Council, Cllr Simon Spencer, for his consideration.
“I hope this meeting has been a clear demonstration of the strength of feeling amongst residents and will help to focus the minds of the decision makers at the County Council into finally taking action.”
