Parking for Holywells Park

Holywells Parking 2 Holywells Parking 1One big issue in Holywells is lack of parking for Holywells park and the subsequent impact on the Cliff Lane and Rivers area.
Paul Daley, our Candidate in the ward has looked at this issue and has the following to say about it :-
There is much parking on grass verges which both spoils the verge and causes inconvenience for residents . Part of the problem has been caused by making the Holywells park Car park only for disabled and for permit holders such as the Bowls club. Holywells is a popular park which can be one of the jewels in Ipswich crown, but it needs to reflect that people need to get there. There is added pressure on parking due to the popular line of shops on Cliff Lane which also has inadequate spaces
The solution as I see it is four-fold.
1. Reinstating at least some parking availability in the park. There needs to be space for disabled but on many occasions, it is otherwise half empty.
2. Looking for other spaces in the vicinity where some additional parking can be provided
3. We need to get less people coming to the park by car so improved cycle lanes and cycle routes to the park from all directions are essential.
4. Improving the bus service to the park so buses are more frequent and more easily accessible by people wherever in the area they are coming from
