Kidsgrove Athletic fans are being blamed for causing parking problems on Hollinswood Road in Kidsgrove. It appears that on Kidsgrove Athletic match days residents are finding that Kidsgrove football fans are parking on both sides of the road making it really difficult for some of them to get into and out of their own drives. This is clearly something that many people would not be happy to experience. Kidsgrove residents are also concerned about emergency services access to Hollinswood Road on match days.
Clearly this is not a simple issue to resolve. Kidsgrove Athletic Football Club are well established and have been playing for many years. The club can not increase the parking provision at the ground and a successful Kidsgrove Athletic can only be good for the Kidsgrove community. This however has to be balanced with rights of local residents and even if Newcastle Borough Council want to implement parking restrictions in the area, these become totally pointless if they area not enforced.
