Tendring: Anti-social parking scheme set to grow

A SCHEME to tackle anti-social and inconsiderate parking in Tendring is to be expanded into two more areas.

St Osyth and Holland-on-Sea will be the latest communities to have the Considerate Parking Initiative (CPI).

Notices will be placed on those vehicles which are parked inconsiderately pointing out the problem instead of having a fixed penalty notice issued.

The aim is to get the message across without enforcement, but fixed penalties will still be used to deal with persistent offenders.

Ian Taylor, Tendring District Council’s assistant head of legal services, said that residents in St Osyth and the Colchester Road area of Holland-on-Sea will notice a positive difference.

“The CPI is working very well in other areas and we are also looking to introduce it to Ardleigh, Bradfield, Tendring Village, Little Bromley, Wrabness, Little Bentley, Wix, Alresford and Great Bentley in the future,” he said.

Mr Taylor said the aim is to change some motorists’ attitudes and encourage them to park considerately.
