First published in Echo News by

FRUSTRATED residents want to see parking permits introduced in two busy streets and are urging people to back a campaign.

Elderly and disabled residents in Church Park Road and Parkhurst Road, Pitsea, have struggled with the lack of parking spaces for years because of its proximity to the busy town centre.

However, the issue has been made worse since the regeneration of Pitsea town centre kicked in last year, and residents are now being urged to complete a survey which could help introduce parking permits on their roads.

The Labour candidate for Pitsea South East, David Burton-Sampson, said: “It’s even more difficult for the elderly and the disabled as they need to have easy access to their own homes.”

Parking spaces on the streets are reportedly being used by employees who work in the town centre and commuters who travel from Pitsea station.

Paula Biggs, of Church Park Road, said: “If you try to reverse out of your driveway you can’t get the car out without worrying if a car is coming one way or another.

“This used to be a very quiet little road, but not anymore. There will be a big accident – and there is no doubt about that at all.”

The Labour councillor for Pitsea South East, Aidan McGurran, has been lobbying the South Essex Parking Partnership for months and it has now sent residents a survey.

Action will be taken if amajority of residents respond to the survey by Friday, April 11.

Mr Burton-Sampson added: “A majority need to respond to the survey.

Ideally, every resident needs to come back and put forward their views.

“Residents are over the moon this is finally happening. They were over the moon about the consultation going ahead.”

A spokesman for the parking partnership said: “After the closing date, recommendations will be presented and consideration will be given to the most appropriate action.”

When every road is resident only parking and every parking space has to be paid for then the car will loose its attraction. I think this is a government scheme, as they can't ban you from driving then they will make sure you can't park when you get there.

Roads were made to be used by cars, not for the convenience of residents having somewhere to park.

Parking is getting silly, there should be no parking permits, first come, first served, if they don't like it, get a house with a driveway that you can manage.

People have to go to work, public transport is crap, nurses / home carers have to visit residents, doctors have to visit patients ... whilst you want a space to stand empty most of the day, stop and give a little thought to the needs of others.

I am fed up with residents assuming they own the space outside of their home ... they don't!

UNBELIEVABLE!

These are NOT busy roads - they are not rat runs to anywhere and I have never had a problem parking in or driving out of the free car park behind Pitsea Market.
There are also always lots of parking spaces in Tesco, which are much closer to Pitsea Station for commuters.
The regeneration plan MAY have have reduced the number of parking slots slightly, but the guys working there have to park somewhere.

And finally, it is against the Highway Code (if not the law) to reverse out of a minor road (driveway) into a major road - I will NEVER let anyone do that in front of me!

Sorry - rant over

I'm sorry but you don't know what you're talking about.

At weekends when you probably visit the market, there is no issue with parking. However during the week, the road is full of people parking for nearby offices. I do however sympathise as there is nowhere to park for longer than 3 hours.

Whilst the old chestnut of 'you do not own the road outside your house' is absolutely true, most people on this site would have similar moans if they could not get parked anywhere near your house. And moving isn't an option. rant over.

You might find the availability of parking in the car park in Pitsea a bit restricted soon as there's a set of gates being installed in the entrance road.

You cannot park in Tesco's car park and go to the station. Just like the Lidl car park it is restricted to 3 hours and of course both car parks are private. Read the notices clearly in place in the car parks. Park all day and risk the fine.

I agree it is now a big issue where people Expect free parking near town centres and stations. Or park down side streets being an inconvenience to residents, something has to be done to help residents.

As for reversing, the highway code is just that a code, it is not law but advises what is. Also, look at the image above, it's a side road, and there is nothing wrong with reversing into a side road, it is daft to do so onto a main road, but not illegal. It is encumbent upon all road users to perform and allow manouvers to be done safely. Are you saying that if someone ahead of you was reversing you would drive in such a way to prevent them from completing? You sound quite dangerous

In response to you last sentence, perhaps I should clarify what I meant. If I am driving in a queue of slow moving traffic, I am much more likely to allow someone to drive forward in front of me than I am to allow someone to reverse out of their driveway.

Mo Larkin has done more for Basildon than you've ever done. Tell me what you have ever done for the good of the town? Have you ever got stuck into helping out charities and spending your own money on prizes, not claiming for chauffeur services and not ripping off the public with crackpot schemes.

You seem to be a bit vague on these things. Mo Larkin is not a Cabinet member and does not have responsibility for all the ills of Basildon.

Actually you have no idea of what I have done for the town. I guarantee that I have not dragged the towns name through the mud by being disrespectful at the Armed Forces Day parade, I have not turned myself into a global laughing stock by asking the police to investigate a harmless video on the internet, my partner is not a delusional fantasist.
