Does anybody know if there are any plans to enforce the no parking double yellow lines at the top of Winston Churchill Drive because people are still parking on what used to be the grass and wether they are going to double yellow line the other side?

I understand proposals for Waiting Restrictions at Winston Churchill Drive are be actioned, and may already have been advertised in the Lynn News.
There has been a long delay since proposals were initially presented because the waiting restrictions needed to be included in the Civil Parking Enforcement (CPE) scheme.
Proposals are normally advertised in the press and notices displayed on site.

Prohibition of Waiting – At Any Time
U23296 Corbyn Shaw Road (Northern Arm) Both Sides - From its junction with the U20779 Winston Churchill Drive eastwards for a distance of 9 metres.
Southern Arm, Both Sides - From its junction with the U20779 Winston Churchill Drive eastwards for a distance of 9 metres

U23182 William Booth Road -
North Side - From its eastern junction with the U20779 Winston Churchill Drive westwards for a distance of 45 metres
South Side - From its eastern junction with the U20779 Winston Churchill Drive westwards for a distance of 20 metres - From a point 30 metres west of its junction with the U20779 Winston Churchill Drive westwards for a distance of 15 metres

U20779 Winston Churchill Drive
East Length West Side - from its junction with the A1076 Gayton Road southwards for a distance of 38 metres - From a point 20 metres north of the centreline of its junction with the U20776 Gayton Road southwards for a distance of 32 metres - From a point 30 metres north of the centreline of its junction with the U23182

From a point 196 metres south of the centreline of its junction with the U23182 William Booth Road southwards for a distance of 10 metres

East Side - From its junction with the A1076 Gayton Road southwards to a point 30 metres south of the centreline of its southernmost junction with the U23296 Corbyn Shaw Road

Once regulations become law, then the civil enforcement department can assess parking issues and take any enforcement action required.

Thank you for posting this info, I remember it being on the lamp posts some time ago but I had forgotten what it said, it would appear then that they are going to put yellow lines on the other side of Winston Churchill Drive. I guess they have to get the cars moved first.

I can't quite understand what has happened on the east side where it meets Gayton Road though, the lines end about where that crossing sort of thing is rather than going round the curve and out towards the A149. This has resulted in a Black Fiesta (which i believe is a Hospital employees) being parked everyday half on the grass and half on the road causing the type of disruption the lines are meant to stop.

I have it on good authority that the civil enforcement officers can only deal with vehicles parked on the yellow lines, any other vehicles such as the black fiesta would have to be dealt with by a proper uniformed police officer. I am told that a complaint of obstruction by this vehicle to the police should help to resolve the matter!.

I saw a car earlier parked on the grass with a parking ticket on it so I guess they are enforcing it.
