Sherrards Ward Parking Consultation

A consultation for parking in Sherrards ward began in October 2022.

As we received less than a 20% response rate for the consultation, we wrote to residents who did not engage in January 2023 and extended the consultation survey period.

The survey closed on Sunday 26 February 2023 and all feedback was reviewed.


Walden & Blakemere Road area

The objection period has now closed. As objections were received, it was considered along with the Parking Officer's report and recommendation at Cabinet Planning and Parking Panel on Thursday 9th November 2023. The meeting can be viewed at the following link: Agenda for Cabinet Planning and Parking Panel on Thursday 9th November 2023.

The panel voted unanimously to approve the recommendation within the report to proceed with the yellow lines and verge and footway prohibition as advertised. The permit zone was agreed to proceed, albeit with reduced days and hours Monday to Friday 9am to 3pm to take into account concerns raised by objectors.


Next steps

We will look to complete the process to change restrictions in Walden Road/Blakemere Road/Walden Place/The Orchard, which will include signing and sealing of Traffic Regulation Order as well as installation of signs and lines. A date for the new restrictions will be advertised here in due course as well as letters to neighbouring businesses and properties.

We wrote to residents in Walden/Blakemere Road area proposing a permit zone A02 to operate Monday to Sunday 9am to 5pm.

We also proposed a verge and footway prohibition.


Rest of Sherrards Ward

In the rest of Sherrards, we have sent out idea letters to residents indicating initial ideas based upon survey results. 

We have received a large number of comments in relation to our Sherrards idea letter.

All comments and feedback will be noted and considered before any further proposals are submitted, we will endeavour to answer as many questions as possible in due course once the feedback stage has closed and update residents before end of 2023.
