Parking Restrictions at the entrance of Tortoiseshell Way

We the undersigned petition the council to restrict parking between 8am - 5pm at the entrance of Tortoiseshell Way, Braintree


Over the last 2 years the entrance to Tortoiseshell Way has become a car park during the hours of 7am to 7pm. Obstructive parking on the "Hawthorns" side of the entrance to Tortoiseshell Way has meant that residents wishing to leave the area are bottle necked into driving at the oncoming traffic on a blind hill heading towards the busy London Road. There is also the worry of “The Hawthorns” elderly residents, dog walkers and children having an accident on the rise of the hill where they would cross to reach “Marshalls Park”. We ask to have no parking between the hours of 8am – 5pm to deter the free all-day parking for non-residents commuting to work via the bus stop on London Road or Braintree train station. Please could you help us in achieving this by signing to show your shared concerns.
