Parkers beware - New Road in Kendal to close for a week
A POPULAR free parking area by the River Kent in Kendal is expected to be unavailable all next week.
New Road Common will be closed from Monday to Friday to allow essential repairs to be made by South Lakeland District Council.
Ahead of the winter, SLDC is fixing a number of craters and potholes on the site.
It says maintenance work will start on Tuesday September 17 - after the fair has vacated the site.
The works are expected to last up to five days but it may open sooner.
It is anticipated that the site will be open again by Saturday September 21.
Coun Giles Archibald, SLDC's Town Centres and Small Business portfolio holder, said: “The work being done includes repairs to pot holes and is important for public safety reasons. As soon as it is complete the area will be re-opened.”
