Vanessa Walsh started this petition to Neath Port Talbot Borough Council

We are raising this petition as the council are planning to add yellow lines to Cimla Road, Neath which will ultimately result in the loss of 10-12 parking spaces for local residents. 
There are many elderly residents who will suffer if these parking spaces are removed. We have heard from local residents who are afraid that they would lose their independence if they were unable to park close to home. This would have a fundamental effect on their well-being. We also have young families living in Cimla Road who would be unable to park close to home. Both of these demographics would be adversely affected by the proposals. The council have offered no alternative parking arrangements for local residents. New housing cannot be approved without the facility of off road parking yet for those residents of Cimla Road without this facility, the right to park close to home is proposed to be removed without discussion!
The council has cited Safety reasons behind the proposal but has not responded regarding the number of accidents which have occurred on the road. Other safety measures are available eg mirrors, speed bumps, etc to aid residents pulling out onto Cimla Road and these should be assessed before removing valuable parking spaces.

NB the nearest Parking Permit which could be purchased (for those who could afford it) is Rugby Avenue in Neath. Simply unacceptable! Please help us stop this proposal.
