A COUNTY roads boss has promised to meet elderly and disabled residents of a street plagued by thoughtless parking by leisure centre users.

Residents of Victory Close, Nelson, are "sick to death" of Pendle Wavelengths customers dumping cars in their cul-de-sac.

Tony Hayes, who said householders had been threatened by car owners when they had complained, raised a 35-signature petition calling for double yellow lines.

Now Mr Hayes, 66, is set to reported incidents of aggressive behaviour by drivers towards residents to the police.

County Cllr Mohammed Iqbal, of Nelson West division, has persuaded Cllr Keith Iddon, the county's highways cabinet member, to visit.

Cllr Iddon said he was happy to attend Victory Close to listen to the residents' problems.

He added: "There are certain things the county council can do and others we cannot but I will consider what measures we can take to help them out."

Cllr Iqbal said: "I will look forward to meeting Cllr Iddon on Victory Close and asking him to take action on behalf of residents who have been forgotten by the authority."

Pendle Leisure Trust hope a new pay and display machine will deter other motorists from using Wavelengths car park, freeing up space for users.
