Further parking management proposals

TO BE UPDATED – Presented to a public meeting and changed to reflect feedback; subject to formal and legal consultation.

Further to concerns raised with Councillors and traffic officers, we propose to consult on the following suggestions –
· Increased yellow lines (2 car lengths) to the west of Ryeland Gardens junction
· Increased yellow lines (2 car lengths) to the west of Manifold Gardens junction;
· To allow clearer views of traffic on Robin Hood Way, whilst seeking to join it, yellow lines at the Osier Road junction and opposite it, and extended yellow lines (8 car lengths) east of the Houseman Gardens junction, also to allow clearer views for pedestrians using the Houseman Gardens outbound bus stop;
· To reduce commuter parking on Osier Road, Aldermens Close, residents’ parking permits; Oxbow Close is also probaby required.
· Increased yellow lines (1 car length) to the west of Launder Street junction
· Yellow lines to protect the Mickledon Close junction
· In anticipation of further displaced commuter parking on streets not protected by parking permits, to consult on the principle of permits being introduced further, subject to street by street consultation, if the need arrives; those streets being, Mickledon Close, Wetherlam Close, Hellvellyn Close.
· Yellow lines extending from Mickledon Close around the inner curve to prevent parking displacing to this area.
· To allow proper access to the Thrumpton Drive inbound bus stop and to the inbound and outbound Soudan Drive bus stops, proper yellow line bus stand markings, extended slightly for the Thrumpton Drive stop which is on the outside of a curve;
· Proposal for yellow lines (1 car length) to the north and south of Thrumpton Drive junction.
· In anticipation of further displaced commuter parking on streets not protected by parking permits, to consult on the principle of permits being introduced on Thrumpton Drive and all streets off;
· Proposal for yellow lines to protect the Ferngill Close junction;
· Proposal for yellow lines to protect the alleyway crossing from Meredith Close, by dropped kerb
· Proposal for yellow lines (some car lengths) to the north and south of Soudan Drive junction;
· Because of displaced commuter parking on streets not protected by parking permits, to consult on the principle of permits being introduced on Soudan Drive and all streets off;
· Proposal for yellow lines to ensure protection of pedestrian island crossing point and at cycle way access point which should also protect the grassed verge;
· Proposal for some kind of loading only markings to serve the Eagle building;
– In anticipation of further displaced commuter parking on streets not protected by parking permits, to consult on the principle of permits being introduced further, subject to street by street consultation, if the need arrives; those streets being –
– Ferngill Close and beyond;
– Sweet Leys Road and beyond

Elsewhere –
– parking permits for the remainder of Wilford Crescent East, north of Bathley Street;
– a review of Bathley Street facing the Meadows Recreation Ground;
– some action for Hobart Close and Pitcairn Close;
– parking permits and RINGGO for the southern end of Arkwright Walk, geared to supporting residents and use of the Portland Leisure Centre, exploring 2 hour limits;
– exploring 2 hour limit parking near to Eden Softplay (St.Saviour’s Gardens) and Arkwright Meadows Community Gardens (Kirkby Gardens);

For now, we are not proposing –
– permits for the Old Meadows (lack of demand);
– Wilford Grove (north end) had considered reducing the number of car parking space to improve view;
– action on any council land managed by Nottingham City Homes (home zones and Bridgeway Shopping Centre car parks);
– the removal of car parking from one side of Robin Hood Way, where it would still be allowed on both sides of the road
(residents have, until the March changes, been complaining about speeding along Robin Hood Way, and supporting measures that would do nothing other than allow increased traffic speeds cannot be supported).
