Police Ramp Up Parking Patrols

Bristol City fans are being warned to be mindful about street parking around Ashton Gate, with Avon & Somerset Police set to step up deterrents for the remaining home games in 2015/16.

Following complaints from local residents, Police say more PCSO (Police Community Support Officers) will be on patrol for home matchdays, starting this Saturday (January 30th) when Birmingham City come to BS3.

They will be monitoring street parking around Ashton Gate to enforce any breaches of parking legislation, which may result in offending vehicles being towed away.

Roads in question include those in and around Raynes Road, as well as Duckmoor Road and the T-junction with Ashton Road.

A reminder to those supporters with blue disabled badges, who are able to park on double yellow lines, that it is prohibited within 15 metres of a junction.

This is especially prominent on the junction of Duckmoor Road and Ashton Road, where Police say six cars were in breach of this ruling last time (versus West Brom). More information can be found here.
