Double yellow lines installed at the Pavings lay-by.
Following complaints from local residents about permanent parking by large vans in the Pavings lay-by in Eyhorne Street, double yellow lines have been installed in the lay-by at the entrance to the Pavings cul de sac. Hollingbourne Parish Council has been aware of the situation for some months and has pressed Kent Police, Maidstone Borough Council, and Kent Highways to take action because of the potential danger from the loss of line of sight for vehicles exiting the Pavings on to Eyhorne Street.
From now on vehicles will only be able to use the lay-by for loading and unloading which was the original intention when the Pavings development was built some decades ago.
Pictured below is one of the vans that are regularly parked in the lay-by which now has double yellow lines.
