Priority plea over park & ride scheme

East Riding councillor David Elvidge wants priority given to establishing a park and ride scheme for Beverley following the latest concerns raised by residents about shoppers and workers parking outside their homes. Plans were submitted a year ago for a 500-space park and ride scheme as part of proposals for 900 new homes on land north of the Minster Way bypass.

If it goes ahead, the park and ride scheme would have links to Flemingate and although the overall planning application has yet to be considered by East Riding Council, Councillor Elvidge, who represents the Minster and Woodmansey ward, says the park and ride element of it should have top priority.

Last week we reported how one unnamed resident in Beaver Road, frustrated by parking problems in his street, has taken action by painting dotted white lines along the side of the road, which appears to indicate three new spaces for cars. Councillor Elvidge, a former Mayor of Beverley, is urging residents to contact him with their views. “Residents desperately need the park and ride to ease parking problems in residential streets. I will be lobbying for the developer to do that,” he said.
