Parked cars on Pinewood Street are causing visibility issues for road users, resulting in safety concerns. The proposed parking restrictions will remove parking spaces which will improve visibility.

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 with changes to the next stage of detailed planning.

Specific feedback

  • Concerns that restrictions will push parked cars to the end of the street outside the new GP office. The original proposed broken yellow lines have been reduced. There are 4 more parking spaces available.
  • Wants restrictions to only be installed on one side of the street. Parked vehicles on one side of the road forces the traffic to cross the centre line. This is a major safety concern.
  • Believes that there isn't a visibility issue. Visibility is limited.
  • Believes that the broken yellow lines should be extended to the entrance of the street at Tiverton Road. We acknowledge that on-street parking is a valuable and shared community resource. Therefore its removal is only carried out where a significant safety or accessibility issue has been identified.
  • Concerns that there won’t be enough parking for residents. The original proposed broken yellow lines have been reduced. There are 4 more parking spaces available.
  • Installation of a speed hump at the crest of the hill would ensure cars slow down before driving into a blind drop as the real issue is the speed of traffic on this road. If you would like your request to be considered by us for future development works, please provide feedback here
  • Widening the road may be a better option. If you would like your request to be considered by us for future development works, please provide feedback here

Next steps

We expect to introduce this work in the 2017/18 financial year, subject to any further changes in design or funding issues.
Contractors will issue 48-hour notice to all affected residents prior to construction work.
