'Fear in commuters' eyes'

TREHAVERNE Terrace featured in the West Briton eight years ago when a mystery resident left notes on the windscreens of commuters asking them to park in a different area of town.

Resident Jo Greenslade said the situation had got far worse and she was reluctant to take her car out during the day as she knew her space would have been taken when she returned.

For a single mother working as a childminder, it makes her life a misery.

She said: "First thing in the morning you can see the commuters with fear in their eyes trying to race to a parking space.

"It's just evil outside to the point where I don't want to take my car out in the week." Ms Greenslade said three families had moved out of her street because of the parking situation.

"It's been getting progressively worse over the past couple of years and now it's just hell," she said.

Ms Greenslade and other residents want a residents' parking scheme introduced. She said: "In some estates there are driveways. In our street there are no spaces just for residents and no possibility of having your own space.

"The commuters have every right to park in our street. The only way we can stop them is by having a residents' parking scheme and the whole street wants it."
