Parking Review Amendment 30 REF: 006685MS

Statutory advertisement of Traffic Regulation Order

This consultation is now closed.

This Order is proposed to improve road safety at identified problem locations, will address obstruction concerns related to inconsiderate parking and will resolve issues relating to resident parking, together with the management of parking on highways in various locations across the district.

The doc icon Explanatory note for the plans [32kb] provides the locations and the reasons for the proposed parking restrictions for each consultation plan listed.

Before amendments to the existing parking Consolidation Order can be brought into force, a public consultation must take place. If objections are received they will be investigated and a report prepared for Councillor Richard Somner to consider what action to take under Individual Member Executive Decisions and whether to proceed with the proposal as advertised. 

The pdf icon Draft Order [55kb] and pdf icon Proposal [147kb] are available for viewing along with the plans listed below:








For further information on the scheme please contact the Traffic and Road Safety Team.

What you told us

Objections were received in relation to various locations including in the parking proposals. As a result an Individual Decision report will have to be prepared for the Executive Member for Highways.

What we did

A significant element of the parking scheme included proposals for residential roads in the area of Kennet School. Objections were received from residents in that area partly because they did not see the need for additional restrictions. Our proposal for this area was, however, intended to address potential displacement of parking into these areas once new parking charges at the school/leisure centre come into effect. These charges became operational from 24 February. We are currently monitoring the impact of those parking charges at the school/leisure centre car park to confirm the level of displacement into adjacent roads as that will determine our recommendations on how to address the objections received. The Individual Decision Report will be delayed until the monitoring is complete.
