EDITOR - In reply to the Rev Mclachlan’s letter (‘Don’t block off lay-by for those who need it’), I think that it would be counterproductive to include this area into the recreation ground as people will park on the cycle lane.
I would imagine that it would cost Sleaford Town Council more to enclose the lay-by than to repair and maintain it for Rec and tennis club users.
To overcome the misuse by local commuters there must be time restrictions, as used by councils in other parts of the country.
I would suggest no waiting between 8.15am and 9.15am and, possibly, 3pm to 4pm. I am sure that it is not beyond the ability of our excellent councillors to instigate this.
