St Bede’s Catholic College Parking Restrictions and Crossing Improvements

Closed 4 Jan 2019

Opened 7 Dec 2018

Feedback Updated 2 May 2019

We Asked

The proposals for waiting restrictions (double yellow lines etc.) at junctions, resident driveways and school access points to prevent obstructive parking and to provide informal crossing places for pedestrians were consulted on between 7 December 2018 and 4 January 2019.

You Said

Bristol City Council received overwhelming support for the scheme improvements and there have been a number of additional requests for double yellow lines across driveways.

We Did

We have now drawn up a waiting restriction scheme which in order to install, will need to go through a Statutory Consultation process for the Traffic Regulation Order required.  This is a sometimes lengthy legal process which will involve placing a Notice of Intent in the local press and posting Notices on site to advertise the proposals.  Depending on the nature and level of objections and support for the scheme, the Director: Management of Place, Bristol City Council will decide if it is appropriate to pursue the scheme.  The proposed highway works will be progressed separately and should be installed by the end of the year.

Overview

St Bede’s Catholic College as part of its school expansion planning application has funding for waiting restrictions (double yellow lines etc) at junctions, resident driveways and school access points to prevent obstructive parking. There is also funding available to provide informal crossing places for pedestrians.

Why We Are Consulting

We are seeking residents and other highway users views on this proposed design.

What Happens Next

Once comments have been received the next stage of the process is to go through Statutory Consultation for the Traffic Regulation Order required for waiting restrictions.  This is a sometimes lengthy legal process which will involve placing a Notice of Intent in the local press and posting Notices on site to advertise the proposals.  Depending on the nature and level of objections and support for the scheme, the Director: Management of Place, Bristol City Council will decide if it is appropriate to pursue the scheme.
