Many will have noticed that new kerb markings have appeared on the A695 at the junction of Brettonby
Avenue. The markings are short double yellow lines at right angles to the road. They mean that loading and unloading is prohibited at all times, in addition to the existing parking restrictions shown by the standard double yellow lines on the road. This new restriciton applies to all vehicles, including those displaying a Blue Badge. Vehicles are allowed to stop only to allow passengers to board or alight. Northumberland County Council's (NCC) civil enforcement officers are responsible for enforcing this restriction and will issue fixed penalty notices to offending vehicles.
