Reports have filtered in that there is a big parking problem currently on St. Georges Park in Kirkham.  As a result of the Kingfisher Pub being refurbished the car park has been closed off to the people who usually park there from the nearby businesses.  They are now parking on Foxwood Drive and other roads on the estate in an inconsiderate manner and potentially dangerous way.  Local police have been informed.

Commenting, Councillor Simon Renwick says,

“I’ve been aware of sometime that there is a tendency to park in the entrance to St. Georges Park.  This is causing a nuisance to local residents.  I have informed the police of this and I hope they take action as appropriate.  We all understand the needs of businesses and their staff, however, all we’re asking for is a little consideration for local people getting to and from their homes.”
