Nuneaton narrow roads to have extra parking spaces

Roads in a Warwickshire town will be given extra parking spaces to improve safety for residents and access for emergency service vehicles.

Warwickshire County Council has agreed new parking arrangements will be put in place in Nuneaton to resolve issues for residents and vehicles.

The aim is to alleviate parking pressures in Edward Street, Alexandra Street, Windsor Street, Prince's Avenue and Prince's Street.

About 40 extra spaces will be created.

'Not compromising safety'

The spaces will be for residents and will be on-street parking on Edward Street and surrounding roads.

Councillor June Tandy said: "The extra parking spaces will provide a solution while not compromising the safety of road users or the movement of emergency service vehicles in these roads."

The area around the junction of Alexandra Street and Windsor Street will also be considered for waiting restrictions to improve access.

A consultation will be held later in the summer and the new arrangements are scheduled to be in place by the end of the year.
