Pavement Parking has been a problem in the village for some time.
Causing an obstruction on the pavement can make it impossible for invalid vehicles, pushchairs and children walking to and from school to avoid having to walk on the road. It has recently been reported that tickets have been issued for vehicles obstructing the pavement in Great Smeaton, a situation which could also arise in Appleton Wiske.
Please avoid parking vehicles on the pavement and allow pedestrians and others to pass easily and potentially avoid having to pay a fine for having created a problem for other residents.
Several members of the village have raised concerns with regard to the speed at which vehicles travel through the village.
Anyone wishing to report these issues formally can do so by completing a form on the following site and sending to firstname.lastname@example.org or visiting https://northyorkshire.police.uk/what-we-do/road-policing/community-speed-watch/
You can also on this site volunteer to become involved with Community Speed Watch by emailing CommunitySpeedWatch@northyorkshire.pnn.police.uk.
