Consultation status: closed 8 September 2017
Proposal reference: RTV-072
We are proposing changes to parking along the footpath on The Strand and Shipwright Lane, Parnell. These include:
- Prohibiting parking at all locations along the footpath and driveways on The Strand and Shipwright Lane.
- Retaining existing bays of on-street angle parking between 9-23 Shipwright Lane. These parking bays do not affect the accessibility of the footpath.
- Introducing a parking time limit of P120 8am-6pm, Monday-Friday to encourage greater availability of these spaces.
We are responding to local requests to address the safety of pedestrians using The Strand. Vehicles parked on or moving across the footpath present a significant hazard to pedestrians and obstruct driver visibility. We recognise that parking along The Strand has been a long-standing issue and appreciate that these changes may have an impact on businesses located here. We believe that parking restrictions are necessary to ensure both pedestrian and driver safety in this area.
Our proposal received a large volume of feedback from businesses and community groups. We are currently reviewing this feedback and considering different options for this location. We thank all respondents for submitting feedback and taking part in our consultation process.
