Tackling the parking problems on James Street in Seahouses continues to be a concern for parish councillors.

The issue has been discussed at a number of meetings in the past year, but there is still no resolution at this stage.

The latest proposal being investigated by the county council is to put double-yellow lines on one side of the street and controlled parking on the other, with permits for James Street residents.

So far, the discussions have only been around applying these restrictions from the junction with King Street down to the entrance to Kippy Law.

Referring to the new primary school moving onto the middle-school site, Coun Maureen Bramley said: “The problem’s only going to get worse with the school moving and the buses are not going to get down Southfield Avenue. It needs to get sorted.”

Coun David Shiel said: “If it’s one side (for double-yellow lines), then it needs to go from the top to the bottom.”
