TWO streets in Dalton will not have double yellow lines in a new crackdown to tackle inconsiderate parkers.

A series of measures to clamp down on inconsiderate parkers in Furness towns are set to be introduced. A total of 31 double yellow lines will be brought in to streets in Barrow, Dalton and Askam as councillors get tough on people putting drivers and pedestrians at risk.

Changes revealed at the Cumbria County Council's committee for Barrow include introducing a no loading zone on parts of Cornwallis Street in Barrow and an extension to double yellow lines close to Walney School.

In Dalton, Hamilton Terrace, Coronation Drive, Friars Lane/Priors Path, Dale Street/Waterside, Greenhaume, Cleator Street, Chapel Street/Fairview and Duke Street/Sandy Lane were all proposed to Cumbria County Council to have measures introduced. However, orders for Greenhaume, Dale Street were recommended not to be progressed.

A two hour maximum parking slot will also be introduced on Newton Road in Dalton.

Sam Ronson, councillor for Dalton North said the double yellow line measures have been 'overdue' for the town.

He said: "Dalton is a fairly busy and congested town at times.

"There are definitely parking issues in certain areas of the town but everyone needs to get around.

"There's definitely a big issue with parking at the bottom of Cleator street.

"I know in the past emergency vehicles couldn't get up that road because wasn't enough space between two parked cars so double yellow lines are something which is definitely needed there.

"In general I think the measures will be welcomed by drivers and pedestrians.

"In some areas it's been very overdue for Dalton."
