Wheel Clamping

I would like to present a petition on behalf of more than 530 residents of Barrowford and many others from the surrounding parts of Pendle. The wheel clamping of vehicles on the side street of the Spar on Gisburn road, Barrowford, is having a detrimental effect on local businesses and further exacerbating parking problems in the local area. No explanation has been provided for the clamping of vehicles parking in the area, which has been used by people for many years, and the petitioners believe that the signage warning vehicle owners that they will be clamped is particularly poor.

The petition states:

Following is the full text of the petition:

[The Petition of residents of Barrowford, Lancashire, and others,

Declares that they are opposed to the clamping of cars on the side street of Spar on Gisburn Road, Barrowford by Mr John Kay.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to encourage people engaged in wheel clamping on private land to anticipate the imminent change in law by desisting in the activity and dismiss fines already imposed.

And the Petitioners remain.]
