Have your say

further complaints about parking on Tickhill Road, Bawtry, have been received by the town council.

A resident has expressed concern that the number of cars parked on the side of the busy A631 on the approach to the town is increasing but town clerk Jennifer Worthington has replied that the subject has been raised with Doncaster Council many times over the past decade.

The highways authority and South Yorkshire Police have said the parked vehicles have a positive traffic calming effect but Bawtry Town Council is to raise the issue again with ward councillors.
