Free car parking on Braid this weekend
Northumberland County Council have initiated another plan to try to alleviate parking problems in the town. Working with Amble Town Council, Amble Business Club and Amble Development Trust, parking has been designated on some parts of the Braid.
The Ambler understands that this is a trial plan and will be monitored by Traffic Enforcement Officers over the August Bank Holiday weekend.

Long term free parking is now allowed on the grassed area alongside the path connecting the bridge over the Gut and may also include the mown area alongside the Marina fence.
Amble Business Chair Ann Burke told The Ambler: “The long-awaited free parking is now available this weekend on the Braid. We hope everyone will use it sensibly.”
A meeting between the county council and partners will be held after the meeting to assess how well the trial parking scheme fared over the weekend.

The overflow parking scheme runs alongside the weekend Park and Ride trial scheme begun by the county council earlier this summer.
