TVBC helps Methodist Church with Funeral Arrangements

Test Valley Borough Council has agreed to waive the fee to suspend a loading bay outside of Bridge Street Methodist Church to ensure funerals can take place without hindrance.

One of our parking enforcement officers initially raised a concern as the loading bay and part of the nearby bus stop had been coned off preventing the public from using it.

Upon investigation we discovered it was to allow a hearse to park as sometimes the church has had problems with the bay being blocked when a funeral cortege was about to arrive.

We were pleased to help the church by agreeing they may cone off the loading bay 30 minutes before any funeral to ensure access for the hearse, and provided them with a notice issued by the Council to indicate why the bay has been suspended. Given the nature of the use we have agreed to waive the £60 fee normally required to suspend a parking or loading bay.
