Three of the “no waiting at any time” traffic regulation orders (TROs) are in response to new housing developments; on Dearne Hall Lane, Barugh Green, Manor Road and Barnsley Road in Cudworth; and Nanny Marr Crescent in Darfield.

Three of the TROs follow complaints about traffic congestion and “uncontrolled parking”; at the junction of Furlong Road and Prospect Road, Bolton upon Dearne; part of the south side of High Street at Monk Bretton, and both sides of Station Road, Worsbrough Dale and its side junctions.

Councillor Sharon Howard told the meeting: “I’m pleased to see all these”, adding that “inconsiderate parking stops that flow of traffic”.
