Move to keep cars off Devizes green

First published in News

Devizes Town Council is to investigate ways of stopping young drivers from parking on the small Green.

At a meeting, councillor Sue Evans said she had received complaints from residents of The Island, next to the Green, about non- residents’ cars blocking their entrance and of litter and loud music associated with the cars parking there.

The cars access the Green by a track next to The Island.

Inspector Matthew Armstrong of Devizes Police said officers have been giving warnings to young drivers about anti-social behaviour and if it continued they could be prosecuted.

Councillors agreed town council officers should investigate some form of physical barrier, such as planters, to deter drivers.

Confiscate their cars when they park there, that should do it.
