Stagecoach Bus No 87

It has been brought to the Council’s attention by Stagecoach that on quite a few occasions, the 87 bus routes had to be either abandoned, or was severely delayed around Bere Alston, as they were unable to pass parked cars. For every incident the Police have to be called. The Parish Council therefore ask that all local residents and visitors be considerate when they park their cars, especially along the following roads:

  • Fore Street
  • Whitehall Drive
  • Pounds Park Road
  • Lockeridge Road

Stagecoach is in daily contact with Devon County Council regarding this issues and we must highlight that a possible outcome, if the bus routes continue to be delayed or abandoned, is Devon County Council may decide to install double yellow lines along Fore Street. This was proposed a few years ago, as Gritters complained they were unable to get through, but the Parish Council managed to persuaded them not to do, their argument being that buses could get through. The Council is aware of the lack of parking in the village and are currently in talks with West Devon Borough Council to have additional parking put in place in Pilgrim Drive.
