COUNCIL officers will continue to clamp down on illegal parking at a popular beauty spot and tourist attraction. 

Redcar and Cleveland Council have pledged to tackle illegal parking across the borough following “irresponsible parking” on double yellow lines at Newton-under-Roseberry over the New Year weekend.

The council’s parking enforcement team regularly patrol the village, following the introduction of double yellow lines over the summer, however due to a number of positive cases of Covid-19 they were unable to send anyone out over the New Year period.

And the council said, some “irresponsible” motorists visiting the area parked illegally on double yellow lines in the village, putting other road users and pedestrians in danger.

Hundreds of motorists visit and pass through the village each week due to its proximity to Roseberry Topping.

Cabinet member for highways and transport, Cllr Julie Craig said: “Plans were in place to enforce the parking rules in Newton-under-Roseberry on New Year’s Day however due to a number of staff having to isolate following positive Covid-19 tests this wasn’t possible.

“It is totally unacceptable however that some motorists think that it is OK to park on double yellow lines in the village and put other road users and pedestrians in danger.

“Parking restrictions are in place for a reason and motorists parking illegally need to take responsibility for their actions.”

Since the introduction of parking restrictions in the village residents have told the council’s parking team how pleased they are that the double yellow lines are now in place.
