    Wiltshire Liberal Democrats have launched a County wide petition to force a full Council debate and vote on controversial new car parking charges.

    The new charges for Sunday and Bank Holiday parking in Wiltshire Council car parks will be introduced from 19th November in the run up to Christmas.

    The Lib Dems hope to get 5,000 signatures on a petition calling for the charges to be dropped. If successful, that will force a full debate and vote on the charges at the next meeting of Wiltshire Council in the New Year.

    Residents living in the vicinity of Stones Lane and the Leisure Centre entrance have expressed concerns about the number of near misses with vehicles entering the Leisure Centre car park due to poor signage and road markings.

    The issue was raised at CATG by Bob and this has resulted in replacement and clearer road markings to make the area safer for all.

    Residents on Chelworth Road have been concerned about unauthorised traffic from the trading estate and excessive speeding. Following a period of over two years the southern end of Chelworth Road has now been reduced to 40mph.

    "This is a good start but I am disappointed the limit has not been extended along the road's full length especially following a recent accident in the derestricted area. I will continue to fight for a lower speed limit on the remainder of the road despite highways engineers insistence the area is safe," said Wiltshire Councillor Bob Jones.

With the assistance of Cricklade Town Council parking restrictions have now been introduced around the entrance to make the junction safer.
