Kidsgrove Lads and Dads Sunday morning football traffic at Birchenwood Playing Fields is the centre of debate in Kidsgrove at the moment. It has long been a topic of conversation online in our forum board, regarding the parking which is taking place on Mount Road, Kidsgrove on a Sunday morning. It appears this story has also been featured in the local press.
Many Kidsgrove residents have complained about the double parking which takes place all the way along Mount Road in Kidsgrove on Sunday mornings. Footballing players and spectators also regularly park on road junctions, which is flouting the highway code. This appears to just be an accident waiting to happen.
Some people have taken to parking on the pavements and grass verges along Mount Road. This approach may free up the highway and prevent double parking but it also blocks the pavement making it difficult for Kidsgrove residents to get around. It appears that this is making it increasingly difficult for disabled members of Kidsgrove to get about in this part of Kidsgrove.
It has been commented that it does appear that the issue has got worse this year. Maybe this is a result on the increased popularity of the Birchenwood Sports Complex on a Sunday morning. It does appear though that many Kidsgrove residents are now calling on the Police to take action to solve this problem once and for all.
