Hatfield Central & East

Parking Services will start to consult residents and businesses within Hatfield Central.

The council carried out a parking study covering the whole of Hatfield in February 2012. This monitored the number of vehicles parked in each road and the length of time each vehicle was parked. Some of the data from this study was used to consult with businesses and led to various restrictions introduced in the town centre car parks making it easier for people wanting to use the shops.

Due to the size of Hatfield, Cabinet approved to breakdown the town into Wards to make this more manageable for our small Parking team.
At the same time Hatfield Central and East Wards were prioritised first. This was due to Parking Services already completing the Hatfield Town Centre car park project, but the remaining residential roads had yet to be consulted, and a number of historical requests from parts of Hatfield East.

The council sent nearly 6000 questionnaires to residents and businesses in Hatfield Central and East, asking for their views on parking in parts of the town. pdf icon Parking Questionnaire - July 2014 [209KB]

Questions included whether people have any issues with parking outside their homes, what time of day they tend to experience problems, and whether they are ever inconvenienced as a pedestrian or cyclist due to parked vehicles.

Parking Services received over 1,000 completed questionnaires which have now been analysed.
A report was presented to the Cabinet Housing and Planning Panel and subsequently approved by Cabinet in March 2015. The report outlined proposals to split both Wards into five areas. It was also agreed what order, Parking Services will begin further consultation with residents and businesses who will be affected by proposals:

Parking Services received 555 completed survey forms which included additional comments.
These forms have now been analysed and letter will be hand delivered before the end of March 2017 and include parking proposals which will be progressed to the formal stage.

One issue which was mentioned by all three areas was preventing vehicles parking on the pavement and verges.
Therefore, Parking Services will be proposing a Verge and Footway Traffic Regulation Order for the whole of Birchwood, this order could be enforce 24/7. If this was implemented then vehicles parking in such locations can be issued with a penalty charge notice by one of the Civil Enforcement Officers.

In addition, four areas have been highlighted for the creation of more parking, one of which has already been constructed within the Longmead parking area which facilitates the flats. The remaining three areas (Lockleys Crescent, Branch Close and Cornerfield) will be investigated further with the relevant departments within  the Council and with Herts County Council to see if these can be constructed.

The consultation will provide residents and businesses to comment on parking proposals, which include junction protection in the form of double yellow lines and an opportunity to have a single yellow line or a resident parking permit scheme outside of their properties.

Due to the size of pdf icon Birchwood [1MB], it has been split into three areas, see the plans to the right for which area you are included in.

The consultation period finishes on the 9th December, the comments received will be analysed and residents will be notified of the outcome in the New Year.

The Ryde and surrounding roads

Proposals to implement a resident parking permit scheme and some sections of double and single yellow lines, where presented to the Cabinet Housing and Planning Panel on the 14nth July 2016. The Panel considered the objections received during the formal notice period and they recommended to proceed with the scheme. Their recommendations were presented and ratified at Cabinet on the 6th September 2016.

The scheme was due to commence on the 3rd October 2016 however, due to scheduling issues with the contractors the signage will start to be installed until week commencing the 3rd October. Therefore, the scheme will be delayed by one week and will commence on the 10th October 2016. Letters have been sent to all residents with the relevant application forms and timescales.

The new restrictions will be monitored for six months, any residents who have any concerns which have resulted from the new restrictions should contact the Council, these will be investigated as part of the monitoring period.

Further consultation has been carried out in the following roads:

pdf icon Pleasant Rise Amended Proposals - 23 November 2015 [232KB]

Initial consultation has now been completed with residents in The Ryde area.
The majority of responses received by the Council indicated they were in favour of a restriction which would operate
Monday - Friday, 10am-11am.

Further consultation needs to be carried out with residents in some roads as they either had indicated they didn't want a restriction outside of the double yellow lines, or less than 50% of the residents responded to the consultation. Due to the fact the majority of roads would like a restriction, they will have a further opportunity to be included in the scheme.

The Council are hoping to send an update to all residents of The Ryde area by the end of November 2015. This will also include an amended drawing/plan with additional changes requested by some residents. The Council also hopes to be able to provide timescales as to when the proposals will be formally advertised in the New Year.

In August 2014, Parking Services delivered parking questionnaires to all residents in the above area, 34% of which were completed and returned. After analysing the information received, Parking Services are now in a position to propose parking restrictions, to address some of the issues which were highlighted.

The main issue reported by residents was commuter parking. This has steadily increased during the re-development of the station car park. It was hoped this would have improved since it reopened in October 2014, but non-residents are still parking their cars in residential roads for long periods of time. Out of the responses over 50% of residents requested a resident parking permit scheme.

This consultation will include residents and businesses in the following roads:

  • Burleigh Mead
  • Fawn Court
  • Greenfield
  • Highlands
  • Lodge Drive
  • Lowlands
  • Mount Pleasant Close               
  • Mount Pleasant Lane
  • Park View
  • Pleasant Rise
  • Stag Green Avenue                
  • Sunnyfield
  • The Holdings
  • The Ryde

Initial letters will be delivered to the above properties by the 15th August 2015 in the above roads.
Enclosed are two plans. An  proposal overall for the whole area and the second plan specifically looks at proposals in an area which each property is in.
Residents are encouraged to complete the survey form, and return this in the self addressed envelope supplied before the 11th September 2015.
