Action taken to improve parking outside joint headquarters

Traffic restrictions are to be put in place outside the combined North Yorkshire Police and Fire headquarters, Alverton Court, in Northallerton.

In a joint effort with the North Yorkshire Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner, Julia Mulligan, North Yorkshire County Council has introduced parking and waiting restrictions on Colstan Road.

The legal order has been passed and work is due to begin next week (commencing 4 May).

There will be no parking between 10am and 3pm, and double yellow lines will be in place on a short length of Millfield Avenue and Prospect Place at their junctions with Crosby Road.

It is also intended to provide ‘H’ bar markings across all driveways on Crosby Road between Greenhowsyke Lane and Stockdale Court.

The North Yorkshire Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner, Julia Mulligan, is funding the order and associated lining works, with the County Council paying for the ‘H’ bars to be installed.

Julia Mulligan said:

“I am pleased to be able to help the local community around Alverton Court by funding these changes to parking conditions. Having North Yorkshire Police and Fire headquarters in Northallerton is something to be welcomed, but we are also mindful of our close neighbours and I hope these changes have the desired effect.”

County Councillor Don Mackenzie, Executive Member for Access, said:

“The Commissioner and County Council came to an agreement to place restrictions outside the police and fire headquarters. Residents who would be affected by these restrictions have already been consulted, and once in place the impact will be monitored to determine if any further measures may be required.”
