Parking Plan Consultation online response form available

Although the County Council’s long-awaited South Area Parking Review proposals were a huge disappointment after so much time, with very little of real substance, at least they’re giving residents the chance to express their views (again), something which should have been sorted a long, long time ago. There’s an online survey which everyone should complete – it takes no more than a couple of minutes, and it will feed straight back to the team working on the plan. Please do make your views known. Speaking to the parking team, they seem unsure that their jobs will remain in place next year, and if they were to go, this survey might be the main record of residents’ views.

I used the survey to point out that enabling two-way traffic should be a principle in every street, that any restrictions such as yellow lines will be pointless unless enforced, and that white lines over driveways will always be abused and should therefore be extended a metre or more in either direction. You will have your own views, I’m sure.

There are notes about the parking review here.
The online survey, which must be completed by 21 December 2012, is here.

Please also forward this email to any other residents of Queen Edith’s whose email addresses you have. Note that they can sign up to receive their own updates from this website here.

  1. Don’t forget to comment on Traffic Regulation Orders. There are yellow lines proposals for various streets, eg Godwin Close, Hinton Avenue, Nightingale Avenue, Baldock Way – these are in response to local campaigns, mainly for road safety reasons, eg proximity to schools, visibility problems. County Council Highways officers advise that comments are useful either for or against the proposals. The details are described in yellow notices on lamp posts in the relevant streets, and there are diagrams available on line.
