Council backs down in parking row

PLANS to build parking bays on a grass verge in Woodcote have been amended following protests from residents.

The parish council has agreed to make changes to the scheme after meeting objectors to discuss their concerns.

It had wanted to drop a kerb in Wayside Green and create space for up to five cars parked lengthways along the street.

It installed wooden bollards and was going to replace half the verge with protective rubber mesh tiles that grass could grow through.

When contractors began working on June 2, several residents protested by ripping out bollards and sitting on them. They said they had only been given a few days’ notice and that was not enough time to object.
