Opinions over potential double yellow lines in Colne to be voiced by Tuesday

Residents wanting to voice their opinions about Colne double yellow line plans are being urged to write to Lancashire County Council by Tuesday.

The consultation, which is looking at the possibility of installing lines along a section of Keighley Road, and near to the junction with Grosvenor Street, will end next week.

So far the proposals have been met with mixed reactions by residents—with some people feeling it will prevent accidents at the Grosvenor Street junction, while others believe it will cause major parking problems.

Alan Capstick, highways manager for Pendle, said: “We’re consulting on a proposal for no-waiting restrictions around the junction of Keighley Road and Grosvenor Street to improve the current situation where parked cars cause a road safety risk by obscuring sight lines for drivers and pedestrians.

“We’ve previously written to a number of residents whose properties front onto the proposed restrictions, and developed the scheme in consultation with local district and county councillors for the area.

“I’d ask people to write to us before the consultation ends on 18 June so their views can be presented when the proposal is considered by the cabinet member.”
