MELLING Parish Council are working together with local residents to make our village a safer and cleaner place.

Making Melling safer for everyone

Unfortunately, inconsiderate parking has become an increasingly hazardous practice in our village with cars, vans and sometimes even HGVs parked on footpaths and street corners.  This practice can cause difficulties for blind and partially sighted people, users of wheelchairs and mobility scooters as well as parents with children, pushchairs and buggies.  At worse, it means people may have to step out into a busy road to avoid a vehicle parked without consideration.

 

Can all residents please be aware of problems that inconsiderate parking may cause for other residents and when parking your vehicle make sure that you:

  • Leave enough room for a double pushchair to pass your vehicle on the pavement.
  • Don’t obstruct any driveways.
  • Never park on zig-zag markings, yellow lines or on a bend.
  • Do not park opposite or within 10 metres (32 feet) of a junction, except in an authorised parking space

The police and traffic enforcement officers can take action if you do not park responsibly and you could face a fine as well as risk causing an accident or damage to your own vehicle.

Your help is greatly appreciated to make our village a safer place for everyone.

Keeping our village clean

Melling Parish Council regular undertakes litter picking events to help keep our village clean and pleasant, however, we need the help of all our residents to make this a success.

In particular, we are still experiencing a problem with dog mess which is not only unsightly, it can also be harmful to children and other animals.

Please always clear up after your dog where required to do so by law in parks, streets, playing fields and other public places or you may be liable to pay a fine.

In the wider countryside you can help by either, bagging your dog’s mess and taking it home, or flicking it into the hedgerow rather than leaving in on the path.  Please DO NOT under any circumstances leave the filled bag in the hedge or hang it on a tree.

Together we can make our village a cleaner place for everyone to enjoy.
