  • Traffic Surveys and Analysis
  • Waiting Restrictions and Parking Studies
  • Controlled Parking Zones (CPZ)

Project Description:

  • We carried out a survey of existing waiting restrictions and on-site features.
  • Using that information we proposed amendments to existing TRO’s and new waiting restrictions and appropriate signing.
  • We carried out parking volume and duration surveys on a neutral weekday and Saturday to identify demand and problem areas.
  • We proposed revised or new waiting restrictions to reduce inconsiderate and unsafe parking, such as on junctions, bends or double yellow lines.
  • We carried out a consultation which included area wide leaflet and questionnaire distribution and public exhibition to gain views of local residents and businesses.
  • We carried out a presentation of the consultation and recommendations to the Borough Council

Benefits:
