Pine Grove Parking Consultation

If you live in in Pine Grove you should have received a letter in January 2023.

We asked residents and businesses in the road to give us their views about what parking changes they would like to see.

The online survey closed on Sunday 12 March 2023.

Consultation responses

We received total of 66 responses, however 9 were received from same households and duplicates were removed from data.

This led to a 64.8% response rate:

  • From the 57 property responses to the survey, 54 were supportive of introducing parking restrictions in the road.
  • 34 indicated a preference for a resident permit scheme and 52  indicated restrictions should apply Monday to Friday only. 
  • 15 preferred to run restrictions between 8am -10am and 2pm - 4pm, 17 preferred 9am-5pm, and 11 preferred 8am-8pm.

Permit zones enable enforcement of stationary vehicles which do not have a permit during restricted hours.

They do not prevent vehicles from driving along the road to access properties including the school.

A brief stop on the highway in order to pick up or drop off passengers within a residential permit zone is also permitted for all vehicles, under parking legislation.

We would look to develop a plan to consider introducing:

  • a resident permit zone for the road Monday to Friday 9am - 5pm
  • some short sections of single yellow lines in parts of the road to enable better navigation of the road whilst still allowing parking to enable passing of vehicles

The design will also take into consideration double yellow lines at the junction with Georges Wood Road.

As Georges Wood Road is not public maintainable highway, we are not be able to consider placing yellow lines on the surface of that road. 

Next steps 

We will start developing the plans on where to place road markings such as yellow lines and the permit zone. 

If you have any feedback regarding these initial proposals, email us at or call us on 01707 357 000 by Sunday 4 June 2023.
