Area Four largely consists of Businesses located along the length of Beaconsfield Road, It also includes Bury Road. The Parade and parts of St Albans Road East have been included in this survey due to the parking patterns of their staff and visitors to their businesses.
Beaconsfield Road serves a number of businesses. It is subject to a high level of long stay commuter parking due to its close proximity to the Railway Station. Businesses have complained of a lack of parking space, both for their staff and visitors. The Council are therefore proposing the implementation of shared use parking bays, catering for both the casual user and permit holder.
Additional yellow line restrictions together with a Verge Protection Order, are also proposed to prevent obstructive parking of the footway and damage to verges.
