PARKING ON MARKET HILL has often been an issue to spark controversy amongst pedestrians and motorists. It is of particular concern to those users of the Hedon Group Practice and Church View Surgeries.
But in their annual patient survey the Hedon Group Practice approaches the issue head-on and asks:
If (travelling) by Motor Vehicle, what is your view of the parking facilities available?
- Always park at the practice
- Can sometimes park at the practice
- Can never park at the practice
- Park elsewhere
If parking is a major obstacle, have you any ideas on how to help alleviate the problem?
The Patient Reference Group at the surgery has some 455 members – so the feedback from this survey should be very interesting to receive!
In the meanwhile local resident Neil Shillito has a radical solution to offer…
“…They should get rid of the doctors surgeries to Rosedale creating a medical centre with enough safe parking for all, they could then use Market Hill for events such as the Christmas switch on, a fun fair in the summer, car boots , and of course you could put the market up there where it belongs, it could be much bigger than it is now creating extra shoppers using the village facilities. I’m sure with a bit of thought we could really make our town a better place….come on councillors!”
So what do you think?
