We have received a number of complaints regarding parked vehicles obstructing pedestrian access near the intersection of Killarney Street and The Promenade.

Investigations and site visits have concluded that parked vehicles are causing accessibility issues and compromising pedestrian safety at this location.

The proposed change aims to improve safe accessibility for pedestrians on this section of Killarney Street.

Feedback results

Thank you everyone for your feedback.

The proposal received mixed 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

  • Extend the "no parking area" to frontage of #2 Killarney Street. Unfortunately, due to the scope of this particular proposal we are unable to extend the area to include the location mentioned. We will however be referring this on to the relevant team to investigate, and if it is a concern, it will be consulted on as new proposal.
  • Suggestion that the loss of parking will negatively affect local traders. We understand that parking is a valuable community resource and will only remove it when deemed necessary. In this scenario, it is required in order to make the location safer for pedestrians/cyclists. Furthermore, there are alternative parking locations such as along Killarney Street or on The Promenade which can be utilised for parking.
  • Request for additional works including providing pedestrian crossing facilities. 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.
