Parking Services Remit

It is important to note, Parking Services are only able to introduce or amend existing parking restrictions. Any suggestions for other solutions, for example one-way roads and reducing the speed on roads are a Herts County Council responsibility. Any of these types of requests have been forwarded to the County for their attention. Cuffley will continue to be on the Parking Services work programme, until all parking requests received during our consultations have been addressed.

This web page will be used to keep a record of all the consultation documents sent to residents and businesses. As the work progresses each new consultation document will be added to the table below. If you cannot find a document please tell us by emailing our Contact Centre. We will add the document to the table as soon as possible.

Parking restrictions consultation

Consultation document

Six Month Monitoring Period

The new parking restrictions which were introduced in June 2016 are been monitored. If residents witness any issues to report these through to Parking Services and these will be addressed as part of this monitoring project.

 
Colesdale - Double Yellow Lines
 

During the Cuffley wide consultation in 2015, proposals included double yellow lines at the garage vehicular access. During the formal stage, one objection was received relating to these lines.
This was considered at the March 2016 meeting of the Cabinet Housing and Planning Panel and they recommended the lining to be introduced on safety grounds. This was approved by the Council's Cabinet on 5th April and the Traffic Regulation Order was sealed and advertised in the Welwyn Hatfield Times on the 20th April 2016,. Notices were erected in the road and letters were sent to residents informing them of the outcome of the consultation. There were a number of other roads included in the Order and the physical lining and any associated signage was introduced during June 2016. Unfortunately, this section of lining was missed during this work.

Therefore, the Council will be finishing off the lining during week commencing 29th May 2017.

Hill Rise
 

Residents responses to the consultation carried out at the end of last year have been analysed.

The majority of responses from those residents who reside in the top section of Hill Rise to the junction of Tolmers Avenue, indicate to proceed to the formal stage with a single yellow line, operating Monday - Friday, 11am - 1pm.

The Traffic Regulation Order will now be produced and sent to Herts County Council for approval. Residents will be notified in writing when this is formally advertised.

The majority of responses from residents who reside in the middle section of Hill Rise to the junction of Highfields have opted against the additional restrictions outside of their homes. Comments were received about the proposed double yellow lines at the junction of Sutherland Avenue, however due to the narrow section of this road and vehicles are completely blocking the pavement to allow free movement. The Council will be progressing this to the formal stage, the Traffic Regulation Order will now be produced and sent to Herts County Council for approval. Residents will be notified in writing when this is formally advertised.

pdf icon Letter to residents - Outcome of the December 2016 consultation [170KB]

Requests have been received for some sort of protection at the top end of Hill Rise.
This was due to the narrow road and the tight turn you need to make when entering Hill Rise from The Ridgeway.
Any vehicles parked here make it incredibly difficult and dangerous.

The council proposed to introduce double yellow lines at the junction to prevent parking and ease congestion.
In response to the proposals, residents raised some concerns about the displacement of vehicles further down Hill Rise.

The letter to the right has been sent to residents in the area informing them of proposals to extend the restrictions on Hill Rise to the junction of Highfields. Residents have the option to opt for single yellow lines or a resident parking permit scheme.
A plan is enclosed outlining the extent of the restrictions.

If you have any comments to the proposals, please send these to the Council by the 15th December 2016.

Brookside Crescent, Hill Leys and Homewood Avenue
 

The majority of responses from residents (81 out of 155 completed forms) to the consultation opted for the parking to remain as it is currently.
Taking into consideration the results of the consultation, the Council will not progress the proposal for a resident parking scheme at this time. The new restrictions will continue to be monitored. I would encourage residents if the situation changes to contact Parking Services and this will be recorded. Unless there are a significant number of requests from residents to change the current restrictions, further consultation will not take place after the monitoring period.

A request was received to extend the double yellow lines at both junctions of Homewood Avenue with Tolmers Road to further improve visibility. This minor amendment will be progressed to the formal stage (Notice of Intent) and will be advertised in the Welwyn Hatfield Times on the 17th August 2016. Public notices will also be erected in the affected roads and letters sent to those residents impacted by the proposals.

There were no formal objections received to the formal proposals and Cabinet approved the extension of the double yellow lines on the 1st November 2016. The additional double yellow lines will be marked on the ground and become operational on the 12th December 2016
