Should new Brigg bollards be installed to deter people from parking vehicles off-road at the eastern end of Wrawby Street?
This issue - initially raised at a Brigg Town Council meeting in November - was discussed again at the most recent session without a decision being taken, and is now expected to re-appear on the agenda for the late May meeting with a view to resolution.
A relevant factor is the need for vehicles from the emergency services to park if an incident arose nearby.
An adjoining paved area at the front of Wetherspoon's White Horse is already ringed by bollards and contains tables and seating.
Paving was added in the mid-1990s at the eastern end of Wrawby Street by Humberside County Council as part of the pedestrianisation scheme, although the nearby section of Wrawby Street was kept open to traffic approaching on a one-way system from Cross Street and heading up Queen Street.
The paving in question near the A18 bus shelter has suffered some surface damage over the years. It is not designated for off-street parking.
North Lincolnshire Council is the local highway authority and will need to sanction any additional bollards to deter vehicles occupying this paved area. NLC also has wardens who keep a watchful eye on parking.
