By Tarvin Parish Council - 10th March 2020 6:00am
A resident who owns a business premise in Tarvin complained at the Parish Council Meeting Open Forum, 24th February, that a lack of suitable car parking was one of the reasons why there were so many vacant shops in the village centre.
Later in the meeting Councillor Lush stated that a considerable amount of work had been done and that there was little, if anything else that the Council could do.
The Neighbourhood Plan included an aspiration for a 45-bay car park on the Garden Field, the site on the east side of Church Street closest to the village centre and Church. However, the field was in the ownership of the Diocese which did not wish to discuss moving this matter forward with the Parish Council.
Ed: What do local residents think about current parking in the centre of the village?
"In view of the severe disruption that takes place in the village when a wedding or funeral takes place surely it is the duty of the Church (when there is land available) to make provision for these events, even if they are not prepared to help the village as a whole."
