The work ongoing to create new parking bays in Broughton

Broughton is to see new parking bays and restricted parking zones put in near the crossroads.


Work continues by Lancashire County Council on the village’s road layout.

Currently there’s waiting restrictions in force on the stretch to the south side of the Broughton crossroads.

Now the county council is putting in the new bays and a restricted parking zone.

Cabinet member for highways and transport county councillor Keith Iddon said: “We’re adding parking bays and creating a restricted parking area. It would have been a shame to add double yellow lines, when we can use another more suitable option that will help how the road looks following our work.

“The new bays will help people who are visiting homes and businesses on the south side of the crossroads, as part of our ongoing improvement work.”

Chairwoman of Broughton Parish Council Pat Hastings said: “The Parish Council welcome the planned parking arrangements and the work that is being done by LCC in the village to enhance it.

“The next step is to rejuvenate the village centre and the Parish Council has plans to do this.

“The project around the Pinfold and Information boards is underway and the base for the Community Hub is due to be agreed next week.”
