A quick follow-up to the previous post: I can confirm the area of Hay Lane near to Wynbrook Grove and Oldberrow Close will come under the area for consultation – the updated plan is attached. I welcome comments. shelly crescent 02
The main issues surround safer routes to school for pedestrians and clear lines of sight for car drivers as well. However, displacement is always an issue when considering parking restrictions and I make these initial comments:
In the Shelley Crescent area displacement should not cause too much of a problem. Most vehicle users do park sensibly but it is the few that is causing the problem; I would estimate only two or three vehicles at each junction. These should be easily accommodated in the roads of Shelley Crescent without causing problems.
In Hay Lane this is a different issue. There is usually more than 20/30 vehicles parked in the area – again, only a few at the junctions. The parking restrictions may displace vehicles from this area further along Hay Lane and into Wynbrook Grove and Oldberrow Close. If this is the price needed to ensure safety then this might be acceptable to local residents. However, I would value thoughts on the idea of having parking restrictions on just one side of the road in Hay Lane between Wynbrook Grove and the end of the cul-de-sac.
