Rubbish drivers are making Cranbrook look scruffy, says council

Bad drivers have been sent a warning after leaving kerbs and verges in Cranbrook looking scruffy and damaged.

Or it could be that roads are too narrow and garages too small (or being used for storage) or too few parking spaces …. all of which were pointed out by Owl in 2014 after a scathing report on its planning mistakes

After multiple people were reported vehicles driving over grass verges across the newtown, the council say anyone caught doing so may be charged for the repair costs.

Cranbrook Town Council wrote a post on Facebook to warn people about their actions.

The post reads: “Sadly, we have received a number of reports of vehicles driving over verges/grassland, which renders them unsightly and costly to remediate.

“Please be considerate when driving around Cranbrook and keep vehicles on the road. Where we have proof of individuals damaging the verges, we will invoice for remediation costs.”

In agreement with the post, the residents of the town commented that there should be some precautions put in place to ensure this does not happen.

One person suggested the council install posts making it impossible for the cars to drive over the verges.

While another added there should be double yellow lines in place to deter people from parking and mounting their cars on the grass.
