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 consultation documents sent to residents and businesses for current consultation or for schemes which have been operational for two years or less. Traffic Regulation Orders for parking schemes which have been operational for more than two years can be located at: http://www.welhat.gov.uk/article/4304/Completed-Traffic-Regulation-Orders

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.

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 junction 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.

Tolmers Road
 
Parking Services had received a number of contacts from residents living in the section between Tolmers Gardens and Acorn Lane who had been affected by excessive amounts of parking within the road when football fans park to travel from the railway station. Residents voted in favour of restrictions to be changed from Mon-Fri 11am-1pm to Mon-Sat 10am-4pm. During the consultation process residents also highlighted that parking was occurring on the verge and footway, causing hazards for pedestrians and unsightly verges. Two traffic regulation orders were advertised in June 2018. No formal objections to those proposals were submitted and the orders progressed under delegated officer orders.

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.

August 2018 UPDATE - A short section of double yellow lines is being investigated to improve the access to the garage area where parking issues have been reported - any proposals will be included in a future order with Station Road.
