EXTRA parking bays will be provided along a road in Hutton for residents to use.

Funding was provided by Brentwood Council for the spaces to be set up along Hutton Drive after residents raised concerns with the lack of parking available to them outside their homes.

Conservative Hutton Central councillor John Kerslake who has also been campaigning for the new bays said this is a very welcome move.

Mr Kerslake said: "I've been lobbying for the funds for some time and I'm pleased the money is now there for extra spaces to be installed.

"Currently, parking is very limited and residents are having to leave their cars some distance from their homes, often whilst carrying heavy shopping."
