Parking restrictions have now been brought into force on a road in Oakham.

A single yellow line has been painted along Stamford Road, forbidding motorists from parking there from 8am to 6pm, Monday to Saturday.

Residents had been calling for restrictions along their road because they believed it had become dangerous due to congestion. Parking along the road had become a problem since the displacement of council employees from the council’s car park in Catmose.

Rutland county councillors voted for the restrictions at a meeting in May.

Residents in Edmonton Road, South Street and neighbouring roads are still trying to resolve congestion problems with the council.
