Last week, a fire engine was unable to pass through Ashprington due to inconsiderate parking in the Village - although the road was not completely blocked, the extra width of the vehicle meant that the emergency vehicle could not get through.
A previous incident just before XMAS resulted in a vehicle partly blocking the road approaching Orchard Close and Hill Close.
Ashprington and Tuckenhay are also both on the established gritting route but if the vehicles cannot get through Ashprington, there is a real possibility that our roads will not be gritted.
If you are visiting the Durant Arms, our Village Hall or anywhere where there are pinch points for traffic in Ashprington, please park responsibly.
