Parking at sheltered housing is 'intolerable'
A CORNWALL councillor has called on the authority to solve parking problems at a sheltered housing estate in Looe, which is said to be becoming intolerable for residents.
West Looe councillor Edwina Hannaford is annoyed Cornwall Council has not come up with a solution at Bonson Close.
"I surveyed residents last year and they are supportive of a residents' parking scheme, but I'm told this solution will not happen overnight, and as yet a budget has not been identified," she said.
Mrs Hannaford has asked Looe Town Council to contribute to the costs as she feels the issue is a high priority.

"The old, infirm and vulnerable residents need a solution now; they should not be subjected to this stress and worry," she said.
Mrs Hannaford has also written to the head of transport and highways and Cornwall Housing requesting immediate action.
"Carers cannot park, the refuse lorry cannot get close to the flats and the last straw was when an ambulance could not get past a parked car on the access road to take a 90-year-old to hospital."
A multiagency meeting including the ambulance service, police, Cornwall Housing and Highways has been arranged to find a solution which can be implemented quickly.
