Have your say at Sherwood

15th March 2019

Staff at the new Sherwood Forest visitor centre are asking local residents for their thoughts on the future development of the site, particularly in telling Robin Hood’s story.

The team are busy developing the way they share Robin Hood stories with visitors, and want to find new and innovative ways of doing this.

It’s a big and important job at Sherwood to continue the legend, and they want to do it in ways that visitors find engaging and enjoyable – so please have your say!

Local residents are welcome to go along to the centre, speak to a member of the team and fill out a survey, or even easier, can go on-line and do it on the Sherwood Forest website

Residents may also like to know that the car park at the new centre will soon be open from 7.30am, in response to requests from dog-walkers and those heading out for an early morning stroll in the forest. Please check the website for details. There’s also full updates on the work being undertaken at the former visitor centre too.


Parking

14th March 2019

A police officer doesn’t have the powers any more to ticket for parking issues. We would now only report someone for an offence such as unnecessary obstruction and this has to be done with a driver present. So this method wouldn’t work with an unattended vehicle.
There would also need to be a full obstruction such as you physically couldn’t get past. If you are able to walk around the vehicle, either on the path or by crossing the road it isn’t an obstruction.

The only thing I can see there that would be a police issue is the vehicle parked in front of a gate. So for example if there was a parked car behind the fence and they couldn’t get out because of the parked car, I would advise that person to report this to the police at the time and it could then be dealt with. We have police powers to move the car if the driver /owner cannot be located and the person blocked in HAD to get out.

We obviously don’t deal with ‘what ifs’ I’ve had past incident where someone repeatedly complained about a fence/gate being parked in front of, but it was never actually used. So we obviously deal with individual incidents on the circumstances surrounding each one.

This looks to be a clear council issue. The area outside of the shops is a large area and it needs to be clarified between with the shops and council what the use of that area is actually for.

Parking on a pavement is NOT illegal outside of London.

Since 1974, Highway Code rule 244 has stated that drivers "MUST NOT park partially or wholly on the pavement in London and should not do so elsewhere unless signs permit it."

The key things to note here are the words must not and should not.

In London, you must not park on the pavement, the must indicating there is legislation behind this rule and you could receive a fine for breaking it.

However, outside of the capital or “elsewhere”, the Highway Code states drivers should not park on the pavement, meaning it is advisory and not, therefore, backed up by any legislation.

Parking on a Junction is a breach of the Highway Code however the Highway Code isn't the law and responsibility of this would usually lie with the council. The Traffic Management Act 2004 allows local authorities to control parking enforcement on yellow lines, resident parking, public car parks and on-street parking. A Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) might be issued and enforced through the civil justice system, rather than the criminal justice system. Individual councils can make Traffic Regulation Orders (TROs) to impose local bans on pavement parking - but few do this, and even fewer enforce them.
