Grass verge parking warning from council

MOTORISTS are being asked not to park their cars on grass verges as it is making it difficult to keep them under control.

Wychavon’s contractor Smart Cut has been unable to carry out grass cutting in several areas because of the number of cars parked on roadside verges.

The problem is particularly an issue on the Abbey Estate and the area in and around Hurst Road in Pershore, as well as Fairfield, Cheltenham Road and Greenhill in Evesham.

Coun Emma Stokes, executive board member for Environment and Street Scene, said: “We know some residents park on grass verges because they think they are being helpful by not parking on the road, but this is causing a real issue for our contractor.

“If we can’t cut the grass then it will soon become unsightly and may also cause access issues. We ask residents parking on verges to find alternative places to leave their vehicles.
