Westwood Terrace, St Mary's Bay - parking changes

Consultation status: closed 16 September 2016

We received a number of concerns from residents of Westwood Terrace, St Marys Bay about a potential increase of parking demand once the St Marys Bay zone is in place.Westwood Terrace was not included within the St Marys Bay Zone as it is not connected to the road network within that zone.

Concerns have also been raised regarding parking around the cul-de-sac restricting the ability of vehicles to manoeuvre safely.

AT proposed:

  • Installing P120 (two hour limit) parking outside 4 - 6 Westwood Terrace from 8am to 6pm, Monday to Friday.
  • Installing No Stopping at all times restrictions (broken yellow lines) around the cul-de-sac.

The P120 parking zone will encourage some turnover of parking spaces, while broken yellow lines around the cul-de-sac will allow for safe vehicle movement at the end of the street.

Feedback results

Feedback received was largely opposed to this proposal, unless AT considered introducing a residential exemption permit scheme. 

We do not feel that a residential parking scheme is appropriate for this single street and do not feel that Westwood Terrace fits within the existing St Mary's Bay parking zone. 

Westwood Terrace would be more appropriate as part of a potential future Herne Bay parking scheme, but as we have no immediate plans to propose a parking zone for Herne Bay, we will not pursue the proposed changes on Westwood Terrace at this stage.
