York Man Posts Public Complaint Saying Lendal Bridge Trial "Illegal"
9:30am 21st February 2014
A York man has pinned a public complaint to the doors of the Guildhall claiming that York's Lendal Bridge trial is illegal.
Kevin Dobbin from Bell Farm has researched traffic laws and says it is his belief that the city council could be open to criminal prosecution for breaking those laws.
He also states that York Council has acted "unconstitutionally, undemocratically and without transparency" in it's handling of the trial.
Tony Clarke, Head of Transport at City of York Council, said to Minster FM in December: “The Lendal Bridge scheme is fully compliant with the DFT and all signage on and leading to Lendal Bridge are designed to the appropriate legal standards."
A council spokeswoman has said that council leader James Alexander will respond to Kevin's complaint directly.
The note put up on the Guildhall is published below:
