Parking Services are currently consulting in the Aldykes area and a list of correspondence sent to residents can be found on this page. As the work progresses, each new consultation document will be added to the below table. If you believe a document to be missing, please email our Contact Centre.

Parking Improvements

The Council where possible are creating more parking provision in this area. There are a number of considerations which need to be made when assessing a site.

The majority of services are located within the verge and footway which means this can rule out potential areas due to the cost of relocating the infrastructure, lamp columns are very expensive to move. In addition, trees are not allowed to be removed to create more parking spaces.

For an area to be considered for construction, approval has to be sought from Herts county Council and/or Planning at Welwyn Hatfield Council. This will be dependent on the location if the proposals are on public highway or impact the public highway then the proposals will need approval from HCC. If the proposed locations fall on Council owned land this would need approval from the Planning team at Welwyn Hatfield Council.                                                                                         

With all this in mind the plan below the areas in green indicates the parking bays which have already been constructed. The parking bays highlighted in yellow are still under investigation. The red parking bays are ones which we have considered and unfortunately due to the services in the verge these were not able to be constructed.

Initial letter to residents and businesses in the Aldykes Area, Hatfield.

This letter outlines the scope of the whole project. The Council are seeking views on the current parking restrictions to establish whether or not any changes are needed to improve parking provisions.

The Council are responding to requests to protect the verge and pavement, since an increasing number of drivers are using these to park on. This is making areas look unsightly and results in an increased maintenance cost to the Council, who would be responsible for any repairs.

Along with this, we will be assessing areas that may have the potential to be converted into parking bays in an attempt to create more parking provisions. However, this work will be limited due to existing lighting or other services located within the verges. Please note that Parking Services are also unable to move any trees that are in situ.

Please see the attached drawing for a visual representation of the restrictions we are proposing.

The roads which form part of this area are:

Aldykes, Beech Close, Birch Drive, Birch Close, Briars Close, Briars Lane, Briars Wood, Cavan Court, Cedar Road, Part of Chantry Lane, Croftfield, Dellfield Road, Elm Drive, Feather Dell, Firs Close, Grove Mead, Haseldine Meadows, Hillcrest, Hill Ley, Hillside, Holliers Way, Maple Close, Maryland, Oak Grove, Oaklands Wood, Spring Glen, Sycamore Avenue and Veritys.
