New parking restrictions in West Bridgford
As a removal company in Nottingham we operate some large vehicles. In recent years we have found it more and more problematic to actually get our vehicles onto some roads and even more problems trying to actually park them. Car parking is a hot topic at the moment and it seems some change is on the way.
Nottinghamshire County Council has recommended that new parking regulations ‘No Waiting’ ( double-yellow lines ) are introduced on Edward Road, Holme Road, Trent Boulevard, Avon Gardens, Gresham Close, Eton Road, Musters Road, Priory Road and Abbey Road.
Objections have been noted and responded to. See plans.
The meeting to decide is on 17th May at County Hall at 10:30am
Nottinghamshire County Council has received requests for measures to prevent parking at various locations in the West Bridgford area that is obstructive and affecting visibility for highway users or impacts on the efficient operation of the highway.
The junctions are on residential roads within West Bridgford and include Edward Road, Holme Road, Trent Boulevard, Avon Gardens, Gresham Close, Eton Road, Musters Road, Priory Road and Abbey Road.
There is significant demand for on-street parking in these residential areas. However, capacity is constrained by several factors including vehicle accesses, pedestrian crossing points and the road width. Obstructive parking too near to junctions, bends or crossing points reduces visibility for vehicles, pedestrians and adversely affects the efficient operation of the highway. This includes causing delays to bus services and Trent Barton are supportive of the proposals.
As a result, it is proposed to introduce ‘No Waiting at Any Time’ (double yellow lines) restrictions at the locations listed below:
• Abbey Road
• Avon Gardens
• Eton Road and Musters Road
• Gresham Close
• Edward Road, Holme Road and Trent Boulevard
The County Council has also been undertaking a strategic parking review on residential streets in the vicinity of the town centre. The first phase has been partially completed with changes being undertaken on Park Avenue and objections considered at the committee meeting on19th April 2018 to implement parking changes on Epperstone Road, George Road and Patrick Road. Additional work is being carried out to determine whether further phases area appropriate and what form they may take. Whilst it is anticipated that there may be some parking displacement it is not considered that they will have a significant impact on the next phase of the parking review as the proposals set out in the report are in response to localised issues.
