Westbury-on-Trym Parking Review

Closed 9 Aug 2015

Opened 29 Jun 2015

Results Updated 4 May 2016

In total we had 120 responses to the consultation. A summary of the consultation and a plan showing the revised proposals are attached below.

** UPDATE ** Contrary to quotes in recently published articles, these proposals have arisen from requests either by the Neighbourhood Partnership and local Councillors or members of the public during the consultation. The initial consultation made no proposals and asked for residents' views. The consultation period has now ended and any further comments now need to be made during the Statutory Consultation. See below for further details.

Following this update, we will begin the preparation of the legal paperwork leading to the Traffic Regulation Order being publicly advertised. This will involve a Notice being published in the local press and placed on lamp columns throughout the area. Plans will also be available to view in the local library. The Notice will invite people to formally comment on or object to the final scheme proposals by writing to the Head of Legal Services. Subject to the outcome of statutory public advertisement, a decision will be made whether to implement, modify or abandon the proposals.

Overview

The Henleaze, Stoke Bishop and Westbury-on-Trym Neighbourhood Partnership have selected a scheme to carry out a parking review of the Westbury-on-Trym area, as one of their priority traffic schemes and we are seeking resident's views on what needs to be addressed in this area.

A number of problems have already been raised by local residents through the Westbury-on-Trym forum, the Neighbourhood Partnership or directly with councillors and officers. These include obstruction of private drives and dangerous parking around corners and junctions making it difficult to travel around the area.

We have not been asked to consider a resident's parking scheme, only how arising problems can be addressed with additions or changes to existing parking restrictions. This is therefore likely to include double yellow lines to remove dangerous parking, single yellow lines to keep roads clear of parking at certain times of the day, limited parking bays by shops of disabled bays and loading bays.

Why We Are Consulting

We are seeking the views of resident's as to what parking issues need to be addressed. This information will then be used to prepare a scheme which we will publish on this website before undertaking the statutory consultation process.

What Happens Next

Any issues that are raised wil be considered, and if acceptable, will be turned into a proposed scheme which we will consult you again later this year.
