Ynys Môn MP Virginia Crosbie has met with 45 residents concerned about the introduction of double yellow lines by Anglesey County Council in the village of Brynsiencyn.
Virginia visited the village’s High Street on Saturday to talk to residents opposed to the authority’s plans to put the lines on both sides of the road.
Many who live there need to be able to park their cars on the road outside their homes due to mobility issues, having young children or the need for carers to park there.
The local community council has also objected to the proposals that would mean the loss of around 30 spaces and Virginia has given her support to them.
“This is a big issue in Brynsiencyn very much symbolised by just how many villagers came out to see me despite some unpleasant weather. The businesses in the village will also be greatly impacted, especially the post office, Y Groeslon pub and Heritage Coffee shop,” said Virginia.
“Following my letter to the County Council it has now clarified the consultation process which means that residents will have more time to object and get involved. I stand with residents and the brilliant Llanidan community council that is fighting the good fight to stop these yellow lines that risk making lives difficult for local people and several businesses.
“I will be monitoring the situation closely in the coming weeks and I hope to see a council U-turn.”
The MP added: “Many thanks to Ailsa Able who kindly offered her driveway at Cronglwyd in the middle of the High Street for me to meet local residents.”
Local resident Dyfed Roberts said: “We’re really concerned about the county council’s proposal. This will take approximately 30 car parking spaces from the High Street with very little in terms of alternative spaces in the rest of the village. It will particularly affect some very vulnerable people and young families who depend on being able to park as close as possible to their homes.
“I’d like to thank the community council for their excellent response to the consultation. The village is strongly united against this plan. I can’t think why the county council has thought this plan is needed and we hope they listen to our voice.”
