Green and blue parking enforcement officers to start work in Lincolnshire

‘INCONSIDERATE parking’ is to be tackled across the county when Lincolnshire County Council start using new parking enforcement powers from Monday December 3.

The Department for Transport is expected to hand over civil parking enforcement powers to the county council on November 30.

Coun William Webb, Executive Member for Highways and Transportation, said: “Taking on these new parking enforcement powers means we can do more to keep people moving safely on the roads, reducing congestion from inconsiderate parking, and supporting businesses with parking bays outside.

“We are delighted at the encouraging comments people have been making and hope this move will make a real difference to their journeys and mean they can visit local shops with ease.”

Around 20 Civil Enforcement Officers, wearing green and navy uniforms, will work across the county taking a ‘sensible approach’ to tackle local problems.
