GIVEN the current pressures on NHS staff, I suggest that we make things easier for them and free up parking spaces in residential areas surrounding Musgrove Park Hospital.

There are lots of areas which include single yellow line parking restrictions (mostly restricting weekday parking during school/working hours).

These restrictions could be temporarily lifted for NHS staff, who experience difficulty parking on-site at the hospital.

Hopefully, parking in these areas shouldn't pose any safety issues, especially now that children are no longer going to school and most residents are staying at home.

This would be a small step in the right direction to assist our doctors and nurses at such a difficult time.
