Proposed Parking Changes in Harrison Way

Closed 1 Mar 2021

Opened 5 Feb 2021


We consult residents, commuters, businesses and stakeholders to understand what people think about proposed developments, changes to our roads and pavements, or other traffic-related issues.

Why your views matter

Following a number of complaints raised by local residents and ward councillors about increased difficulties in finding a parking space close by, the Council proposes to introduce echelon parking bays outside the shops on the southern side of Harrison Way.

What is Echelon Parking?

Echelon parking is where parking spaces are placed at an angle to the kerb. This is a good use of space which allows for additional parking to be created. Vehicles will be required to reverse into the bays, so that they can drive out in a forward gear.

What is the Proposal?

It is proposed to cut into the wide footway outside the shops and create inset parking bays. The proposal will formalise parking in the area, increase parking capacity and improve access from St Andrews Way into Harrison Way.

In order to allow space for vehicles to enter and exit the echelon parking bays, double yellow lines will need to be introduced on the northern side of Harrison Way.

An alternative option has been proposed to include echelon parking bays and double yellow lines with a 24/7 waiting restriction. The waiting restriction will be enforceable and formalise the loading and unloading arrangement for local shops, but this will mean a loss of overall parking. 

Please refer to the plan below to see the draft proposals.

We would like to hear your views on the proposal and invite you to complete the online survey below.

If you wish to submit comments on the proposal, you have until 5pm, 1 March 2021.
