DESPITE ten objection letters and parish council opposition, plans for more parking restrictions in Whiteley will go ahead.

A traffic and parking committee meeting heard Winchester City Council’s plans to introduce double yellow lines on one side of Parkway between the two roundabouts on the eastern link. Cars currently park on both sides of the road, which is also a popular bus route, restricting traffic flow to one lane and causing congestion.

The committee decided that the traffic regulation order would go ahead, but agreed to monitor residential roads.
