Lavender Court, St Johns - No stopping restrictions

Consultation status: closed 22 June 2017

We are looking to install No stopping at all times restrictions (broken yellow lines) around the inside of the bend (on the west side) of Lavender Court.

Why the changes are needed

This street is approximately 5.6m in width and currently there is parking on both sides of the road. With cars parking on and before the bend, visibility is significantly reduced and makes manoeuvring around the bend difficult for vehicles.

Feedback

Thank you everyone for your feedback.

The proposal received positive feedback with some concerns raised by respondents. After reviewing this feedback and all other supporting evidence, the proposal will proceed without changes to the next stage of detailed planning.

Specific feedback and proposed solution

  • Request to reduce restrictions to pedestrian entrance of #3 Lavender Court. Reducing the No stopping at all times restrictions to the entrance of #3 would allow an approx. of 4m section of parking. This is not sufficient as if there any vehicles were parked there, they would block the entrance of #3. Couriers and other vehicles can use the kerbside parking between #3 and #5.

  • Extend the existing restrictions at the entrance to make it less likely to hit the ‘keep left’ sign when passing a parked vehicle. There is approx. 5m of No stopping at all times restrictions after this sign and before the first parking space which is sufficient enough to manoeuvre a vehicle past a parked car without hitting the left turn sign. Removing a car park would reduce legal parking spaces which are already in high demand. The removal of parking spaces can also encourage a reduction in high speeds.

  • Request for additional works including installation of a ‘no parking on the berm’ sign and the implementation of a P180 time restriction on Lavender Court. If you would like your request to be considered for future development works, please provide feedback here.

Next steps

We expect to introduce this work starting in July 2017 and throughout 2017/2018, subject to any further changes in design or funding issues. Contractors will notify all residents in the area prior to starting construction work.
