Why the changes are needed

These changes are needed to make sure that parked cars do not block access for emergency vehicles and rubbish trucks turning in the street.

Proposal outcome

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.

Feedback received

Respondent would like to see more broken yellow lines added along Ivy Place and suggests placing them at the odd number side of the street. Parking is considered a valuable asset and we do not install broken yellow lines on non-narrow roads unless the location is of considerable safety concern.

Next steps

We expect to introduce this work between July 2018 and June 2019, subject to further changes in design or funding issues. Contractors will notify all affected residents prior to construction work.
