From: Paul Hoggarth, Marley Lane, Battle
Councillor Field has overlooked the continuing parking on the recently repainted double yellow lines and on the pavement at the junction of Upper Lake and Marley Lane when she congratulated those involved in the improvement to High Street parking.
24-hour illegal parking continues unabated at this junction despite the clear new lines. Vehicles are parked on the pavement all day every day. Vehicles turning into the top of Marley Lane are forced to mount the pavement to avoid approaching traffic which has no spaces to pull into due to illegal parking.
These pavements are used by many pedestrians including children going to and from school, kerb stones are loosened by lorries travelling over them.
This is a risky junction made worse by the illegal behaviour of drivers who take absolutely no notice of the law.
Time for some action here as well as the High Street.
