The statutory process for the introduction of parking controls is now complete, the associated signing and lining works are due to commence on 2 August 20121.
These parking controls will remove the current commuter parking problem and create better parking availability for residents and local businesses.
New one way systems are also being introduced as part of this scheme to maximise parking capacity and reduce through traffic within the area. These include:-
Application forms for resident and business parking permits are not currently available.
These will become available once we have progressed the lining and signing works to a stage where an effective date to commence enforcement can be established.
Once this date has been agreed, details on how to apply will be provided, ensuring that we allow sufficient time for all applications to be processed.
The lining works are commencing prior to the signing programme. The first signs to be installed will be the zone entry/ exit signs. Temporary yellow overlays will be placed on all these signs to highlight to the public that upcoming parking controls are being introduced to this area and will provide them with the web address to find out more information.
The majority of road lining works will be facilitated by phased road closures to ensure the work is carried out as quickly and with as little disruption as possible.
During these road closures it is also hoped to carry out road cleansing operations at the same time.
On-street notification will be given prior to any road closure. It is imperative that vehicles are not left parked within the road closure site during the times stated. Any vehicles parked within the road closure sites during these times will be subject to a Penalty Charge Notice and may be removed if necessary.
Access to properties and businesses within each road closure site will be available subject to on-going operations and officers will be on site to help with entering or exiting the road closure site safely.
Following completion of the road closure programme, the lining of the main routes, which include Queen Margaret Drive and Hotspur Street, will be facilitated by temporary restrictions and yellow coning only. It is imperative that vehicles are not left in these areas during the times stated on the on-street notification.
It should be noted that road lining works is weather dependant which means that poor weather can cause delays. If this happens then these works will be added to the end of the existing programme. Details of this will be made available.
We would like to thank you for your patience while these works are undertaken. I apologise for any disruption that these works may cause.
