Forthlin road traffic problems

My colleague, Cllr Richard Oglethorpe, and I met a manager from the National Trust recently to talk about problems facing people living on Forthlin Road, and round the corner in Hurstlyn, caused by some visitors to 20 Forthlin Road (usually tourists visiting a series of Beatles related places)

The National Trust manage their own visits carefully, but it seems that selfish parking and noise and intrusion at all times of the day and night is being caused by some other organisations (not all)

We've agreed to work with the National Trust to see if there is a solution that at the very least eases the problem.

Residents did send a petition in to the Council Leader in 2011 but no action followed.

We suspect this is something that will take a while and we have written to residents to keep them in the loop.  I'll update again when I can.
