Parking enforcement is the responsibility of Wiltshire Council. Unfortunately, during much of last year considerable demand was placed on Civil Enforcement Officers due to sickness and recruitment problems. This meant that although the area was regularly checked, it wasn’t as often as councillors wished.
The good news is Wiltshire Council have confirmed that:
- They are in the process of training new staff and will have a full complement in due course.
- The intention is that Warminster will be patrolled on a daily basis. Priority will be given to busy areas such as the town centre and car parks.
- Even the quieter locations within the town will receive visits.
Chairman of the Town Development Committee, Councillor Rob Fryer said;
“Most parking is done responsibly and in compliance with legal requirements. However, people should be aware vehicles breaking regulations by for example parking on double yellow lines can be moved on or issued with a penalty notice.”
“Town councillors have agreed to liaise with Wiltshire Council to keep them informed about any hot spots for poor parking so they can take appropriate action.”
