Stop Press: A council consultation about more enforcement of 'moving traffic offences' has started. One of the first examples of this was the 'No Entry' at the bottom of South Avenue. We have successfully asked for the 'No right turn' into Chain Lane from Uttoxeter Road to be included in the new list of places for enforcement.
