Parking on Waterlow Road by Country Park Users

Cars continue to park on Waterlow Road and on the verges.
KCC offer a season ticket that allows unlimited parking in 8 of their Country Parks, including Trosley.  The season ticket costs £50 per year - that’s less than £1 per week.  It is proposed to pass this information on to people parking outside the Country Park.
If anyone reading this is interested, click here to take you to the KKC site where you can buy a season ticket; or you can buy one from Trosley Country Park
