  1. I am sick of the rate of speed vehicles are travelling up and down clotherholme road, it is absolutely beyond a joke now and before long their will be an accident. I live actually on clotherholme road and witness these speeds every single evening on my return home from work . Cars absolutely fly over the speed bumps currently in place and you can hear them crashing back down onto the road when they are flying over them. Also on top of this during term time the whole of clotherholme road is full of abandoned cars from parents that have no respect of the residents of this area and just dump their cars in the nearest place to go to the colleges. On 5 different occasions i have been unable to gain access to my property via the driveway due to cars being abandoned their. I have sent a complaint to the grammar school and my reply was that they had invested in parking onsite for parents ?? I think the whole of the side of the college should become double yellow lines due to the amount of traffic that comes up and down clotherholme road it stops the flow of traffic when cars are parked down this side of the road.

  2. Dear Sir or Madam

    I would like to know if there are any standards to which the shopkeepers of Ripon may be held to account? While the vast majority of shops open (and close) for business on time – accurately reflecting their published opening times, there is one in particular that consistently fails to open promptly. The shop in question was, today, again not open over an hour beyond the publicly scheduled time. At this point my parking ticket had expired and I was forced to leave the town both frustrated and empty handed. This tardy behaviour demonstrates a lack of respect towards consumers and it would be very helpful to know if there is a mechanism for redress.

    My continued thanks and appreciation to the many business owners of Ripon who strive to offer valuable services.

    Yours faithfully

    Alex Moore

    • Thank you for your comment.
      We can only suggest that you contact the business-owner directly and let them know your concerns, as there is no UK legislation which covers these issues.

  3. Can the City Council apply pressure to Hoghways to get the yellow box junction in Low Skellgate repainted? It has faded so much that it is hardly visible and many people who are unaware of it are now driving into it and blocking the road for buses, etc.
