Yarm parking woes

For years there has been debate about car parking and congestion in Yarm. And for the last decade, while lots of suggestions have come forward for potential car parks nothing has been achieved.

In February, Matt organised Yarm's first ‘Traffic Summit’, bringing together local businesses, councillors, an engineering expert and the then Secretary of State for Transport Chris Grayling.

The meeting looked at local transport and traffic issues around the town and discussed the lack of a long stay car park.

Now there is a potential site on the table but we want your views ahead of meeting with council officers about the plans. Please fill in the survey below to help Matt deliver action.
