Uplands Area Parking Review, Bishopsworth

Closed 23 Feb 2020

Opened 27 Jan 2020


Bristol City Council’s Road Safety and Local Engineering team propose the implementation of new parking restrictions (double yellow lines) in the Uplands area, Bishopsworth in order to ease access for emergency service vehicles, bin lorries and HGVs.

Please refer to the related documents section at the bottom of this web page in order to view the scheme plans, which show the proposed restrictions in detail.

Why We Are Consulting

Before finalising our parking restriction design, it is important that we hear from you at this stage, so that we can use your comments to produce a final scheme design which is both effective and tailored, where possible, to the needs of the local community. The final scheme design will be published for a second consultation, as a statutory requirement, later this year.

Please review the related documents carefully, then submit your comments (the link for the online survey can be found in the box marked 'Give Us Your Views').

What Happens Next

All suggestions and comments received will be taken into consideration and may be included in the final design of the scheme.

The next step after the receipt of comments and revision of the scheme is the drafting of a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO), which is a legal requirement for the implementation of waiting restrictions. This can be a lengthy legal process which will involve placing a Notice of Intent in the local press and posting notices on site to advertise the proposals.
