Residents who park on grass verges in Ilkley are not helping the appearance of the area, says a ward councillor.

Councillor Anne Hawkesworth (Ind, Ilkley) said keeping Ilkley special was becoming increasingly difficult because of limited funding.

But she said residents themselves were not helping – particularly with careless parking around schools.

“I am conscious of the damage being done by motorists with careless parking on grass verges,” she said.

“Great huge muddy gouged-out areas are being produced near to homes.”
