Now we come to the local issue. A reader who lives adjacent to a local Primary school and is therefore subject to the twice daily term time bun fight over parking places has highlighted a local anomaly.
Connor Close, leading to Charlotte Close off Fullwell Avenue and within parking range of a local Primary school has an official council sign stating “No parking residents only” [pictured].
As serendipity would have it the papers for the next Environment and Highways Scrutiny committee lists all the unadopted streets in Redbridge – and these two ain’t on the list. Anyway as you can see from the picture the road sign includes the Borough logo so they must be adopted roads.
The question is this, how did these residents obtain such favourable treatment, when for example Aintree Crescent, Greystone Gardens, Meriden Close and the whole of the Timberdene estate did not?
I intend to find out.
