Yellow road lines painted in Mylor despite petition

Related Stories

Double yellow lines have been painted on a parish road in Cornwall despite more than 200 people signing a petition against the plans.

Some businesses in Mylor, near Falmouth, think fewer cars could have a negative effect on trade.

The lines were approved for both sides of Penarrow Road, which leads to a harbour slipway, by Cornwall Council.

The authority has previously said the lines are needed for emergency vehicle access.

Matt Povey, from Cafe Mylor, said: "When the car park's full there is nowhere for people to park.

"The double yellow lines will definitely have an impact on business."

'Absolute chaos'

Maria Cavalier, from Westcountry Watersports, said: "It's a bit of a nightmare for the local businesses.

"I'm not really sure why they've decided to do that after all this time."

Not all residents are against the decision.

One man, who asked not to be named, said: "It can be absolute chaos in the summer when you have 200 yards of vehicles parked all the way down one side of the road."

Cornwall Council declined to comment.
