White Lining on Littleton roads

The Parish Council has received a number of reports about inappropriate and dangerous parking in some of the Littleton roads. In particular problem parking has been identified near junctions with Main road raising safety concerns due to lack of visibility, access problems for larger vehicles and causing pedestrians to walk into the roadway. The Parish Council has reported the issues to Winchester City Council and a plan is in place to add white lines to key points to deter parking in the following roads:-

  • The Hall Way
  • North Drive
  • South Drive
  • Bercote Close

Please see the following diagrams for more details, also available as a pdf here.

Advice regarding Nottingham Knockers

It has been bought to our attention that a group historically known as ‘Nottingham Knockers’ are operating in the Winchester area. They are normally ex-offenders who claim that they are working with a pedlars certificate. Essentially they work to a gang master who will bring a group to a specific area and drop off. The individuals then go off selling door to door before getting picked up and taken to another area. While there are periodically allegations of abusive behaviour by those selling at the door if a householder refuses to buy goods, these incidents are the exception rather than the norm.

The advice is not to open the door to strangers or buy or sell on the doorstep. If a householder is abused or threatened on their own doorstep then they should be calling the police, 101 or 999 if they feel particularly vulnerable by the intimidating behaviour.
