We know that some of our readers are concerned about onstreet parking on the bend in Downhall Park Way near the children’s play area. Some active residents in Salisbury Close have contacted County Highways about this, and have sent us (and County Highways) a couple of photos.
Maybe, between us, we can make some progress…..
Update on April 21st- see comment 10:
Some good news on Downhall Park Way- we are now getting a positive response from County Highways – they agree that vehicles parked opposite the junction reduces the available carriageway width, and has the potential to create vehicle confrontations. They shall therefore :
‘keep this site under review to monitor the effect this parking has on passing traffic, and draft a proposal for waiting restrictions which will be circulated to other interested parties. If it is supported, the proposal will be added to the list of other traffic regulation Order requests, which will be considered by Councillors at a later date.’
Any further evidence from CCR or anyone else would clearly help! When the time comes for councillors to decide which new waiting restrictions to introduce in the district, your emails, messages or comments would strengthen our case when trying to get councillors from outside our ward to support us.
