N.Y.M.N.P. will 'Choke Whitby'
Traffic chaos in Whitby is something we're all used to - but we're sick of it! And it could get worse - much worse! North Yorks Moors National Park are very much against the proposed 'Park and Ride' site to be located on the Park's edge on the outskirts of Whitby. A planning application is to be submitted, possibly by the end of April on land that does not belong to the council, and which the land owner does not want to sell! It seems that planning officers on the National Park are going to recommend refusal, as they do not want it spoiling the landscape. What will happen to Whitby if this does not go ahead? Where will drivers park? Is it right that another planning authority can dictate what is good for it - but bad for us?
