Drivers will be prosecuted if they do not stop parking on the pavement in Great Hollands, according to Bracknell Forest Council.
Concerns were raised by Councillor Mary Temperton, of Great Hollands North, at the full council meeting on Wednesday, July 18.
Cllr Temperton asked the executive members what was being done to enforce the ‘No Motor Vehicles on Mown Verges’ rule after £1,100 of signs were recently erected throughout the estate.
She also showed councillors photos of cars that had mounted the kerb, crossed footpaths or parked on the green verges.
Cllr Iain McCracken, executive member for culture, corporate services and public protection, said if people did not respond to the signs, a second stage of polite requests and a third stage of a formal letter asking then the ‘necessary steps to prosecute’ would be taken.
Cllr Temperton said she was ‘very relieved’ to hear this as mounting the kerb was ‘unacceptable’ and ‘highly dangerous’.
