Signs to go up warning against rogue parking


Good news on efforts to clamp down on rogue airport parking in the village.

Stansted has been given the green light to install No Airport Parking signs on the Mountfitchet Green and Foresthall Park estates.

The residents of Mountfitchet Green have been increasingly concerned at the practice of airport users parking on pavements, curbs and occupying spaces in the area to avoid paying fees.

District Councillors – Ayub Khan and Melvin Caton among them – took on these concerns and met with a team from Stansted Airport, providing them with a first-hand view of the problems caused by airport fly parking.

The Airport have since agreed to install No Airport Parking signs on the estate with installation getting under way from the week beginning May 18.

No Airport Parking signage will also be placed on the following roads of Foresthall Park:

· Walson Way

· Reeve Road

· Livings Way

· Palmer Close

· Forest Hall Road
