Local residents recently contacted their local councillors to complain about unused disabled bays taking up precious space for parking on their road.
Lib Dem councillor Ben Dowling took this matter up to find a solution. Of the six disabled bays on Eastfield Road, only half of them were in proper use. This has now been resolved with three of the spaces being returned to normal parking.
Ben commented: "I'm really please we have been able to find a common sense solution to this. Parking is one of the biggest everyday problems facing residents in Milton and Eastney so finding these extra three spaces will help - even if just a little bit."
