Handside

The Handside ward is part of our current parking review work programme.

A parking study was conducted in July 2015. The study captured the following information:

  • Number of parked vehicles
  • Location of parked vehicles
  • Length of time parked 
  • Possible areas for additional parking

This information is currently been analysed and a report will be produced providing an overview of the data captured, and depicting each road and the parking pressures at different times of the day.

Consultation

In addition to the study, over 3000 parking questionnaires were delivered to all Handside residents and businesses in September 2015. This provided an opportunity to report any parking related issues they were experiencing in their roads. 

We received over 1200 completed questionnaires and are currently collating and analysing the information captured in both the parking study and the completed questionnaires.

Next steps

A 'next steps' report was presented to the Cabinet Housing and Planning Panel on 17th March 2016, recommending that Handside be divided into three separate areas for consultation.

Work Programme

Handside residents will be consulted in the following order:

Area 1 - Longcroft Lane and surrounding roads (east of Parkway). Work will commence in June 2016.

Area 2 - North of Barleycroft Road and Applecroft Road

Area 3 - The remaining roads in the ward.

nb - Welwyn Garden City Town Centre is subject of its own investigation which will commence this year.
