After living several years in Rothbury, what is getting worse and worse is the indiscriminate parking on the High Street.

I think it is vital that the following ideas are looked at:

• Much better signage indicating the 30mph limit on entering the village.

• Much better signage indicating where the free parking car parks are situated.

• Possibly more double yellow lines, although these would need to be policed.

• My most important point, a zebra crossing. I would suggest from The Newcastle Arms across to the main shopping area. I fear greatly that it is only a matter of time before a pedestrian gets hurt or killed.

• Perhaps parking discs might help. However, this again would need policing.

• Pedestrians’ needs must be considered.
