A Message from Kevan McCarthy – Chairman Pound Hill North Resident Association
At the PH(N)RA, Annual General Meeting AGM held on the 13th September, I raised a number of concerns for the organisation and the wider community. For some of the topics discussed, other organisations were identified.
Contact details for these other organisations were shared at the AGM. However it was recognised that this information would be difficult to remember from a verbal presentation, so it was agreed that it would also be shared via our Website.
Parking / Commuter Parking
Dangerous parking can be reported directly to Crawley Borough Council, the department is “Parking Enforcement” which includes On Street and Controlled Parking Zones.
The Manager is Dan Holloway and their email is firstname.lastname@example.org please use this email to report impassable or dangerous parking, in particular if you feel that such parking would hinder the emergency services.
Be aware that parking on the pavement anywhere behind double yellow lines is also illegal.
You are welcome to air you views on parking issues, the best place being the East Crawley County Local Committees (EC-CLC) meetings, held at Crawley Library.
The last meeting was the 12th September, the next meeting is scheduled for the 23rd November 2016 followed by the 1st March 2017 – both of these are planned to start at 7.00pm
See West Sussex County Council website for future dates.
If you plan to attend the meeting, and wish to comment on a particular scheme, it would be beneficial to have some alternative suggestions in mind.
Anti-social Driving and Speeding
We have had a number of enquiries about anti-social driving and speeding, we have a number of options available.
– Report it
Report anti-social driving and speeding to the police via the Operation Crackdown website portal www.operationcrackdown.org
Please report all incidents that you see, even if you don’t have all the information. The number of reports will demonstrate that there is a problem in a particular area, and could ultimately support the request for speed calming measures.
– Speed calming measures
Speed calming, road schemes and signs need to be approved by West Sussex County Council (WSCC). You can request traffic calming for your road on-line (see link above) alternatively you should be able to make a request at the the East Crawley County Local Committees, alternatively contact one of your local Councillors.
