BIGGAR Community Council has heard how a parked car is preventing bins being collected.

The issue of the parking problem was raised at the latest community council meeting.

Vehicles parking on the corner of Viewpark Road have become a hazard and have led to knock on effects for other motorists not being able to enter the area.

The problems have also led to binmen refusing to collect rubbish if a car is parked there.

The meeting was told that the owner of the vehicle has been spoken to about the issue, but this has had little effect. 

Members agreed that a letter should be sent.
