Crumstone parking permit idea is dropped
Parking restrictions will not be introduced on the Crumstone estate in Seahouses after failing to get enough support.
A consultation on the idea of residents-only permits was carried out in September as a result of problems with residents being unable to park outside their homes.
Coun Guy Renner-Thompson requested the consultation which would have enabled each household within the designated area to apply for a maximum of two permits, one allocated against a specific vehicle registration and the second visitor permit to be used by any vehicle, including family and friends when visiting. There would have been a £15 charge per permit.

“Only 50 per cent in favour isn’t enough to go ahead, the scheme will not progress,” said Coun Renner-Thompson, member for Bamburgh ward. “Thank you to everyone who took the time to respond to the residents’ survey.”
