Residents had reported difficulty parking close to their homes due to parking congestion caused by the local businesses and commuter parking at the top of Great North Road. After the initial consultation the majority response from residents opted for a resident parking permit scheme and sections of single yellow lines to operate for a short period. This would prevent the majority of commuter parking but allow local workers to park after the single yellow line finished operating.

However, the businesses raised concerns about the reduction in parking for their staff. Different businesses started working at different times which made the time the single yellow line operated impossible to specify. Therefore, the single yellow line was removed from the proposals.  

Residents would still have the resident parking permit scheme in specific bays on Great North Road and the amount of double yellow lines reduced to the minimum to allow parking to continue unrestricted during the day.
