The verges maintained by Norton Town Council are being damaged by vehicles being parked on the grassed areas.  Furthermore the vehicles often interfere with the Council contractor’s mowing operations.

The Council is proposing to raise a byelaw to prevent verge parking and we would like to hear your views. 

Details of the byelaw and the reasons for it are available here, please click here;
