PRESS RELEASE – Business plea to keep loading bays free for vital deliveries

PRESS RELEASE – Drivers are being asked to support local businesses by leaving loading bays free for vital deliveries.

Oswestry BID (Business Improvement District), are especially concerned about loading bays on Church Street which are regularly taken up by parked cars meaning suppliers cannot make deliveries.

“We know that the vast majority of drivers and Blue Badge holders are extremely considerate of local businesses requiring the designated loading bays to allow their suppliers access,” said BID Manager, Adele Nightingale, “but we’ve had serious cases recently where suppliers are refusing to deliver if these loading bay spaces are not available, which puts businesses in an impossible situation.”

The business group would encourage use of the parking spaces and disabled parking bays on Festival Square, Smithfield Street and the Central Car Park, when required.
