PARKING ALONG “THE GREEN”AND “PUDDINGATE HOUSE to the A1079”

At the open meeting in March villagers expressed their concerns at the number of people from outside the village that are now using “Puddingate & School Green” and the road between “The Green” and the Johnson’s pond to park their cars all day.  This is restricting access of emergency/large vehicles, affecting the ability of locals to park, and, eroding the verge edges thereby reducing the effectiveness of the drainage systems and affecting the appearance.

The matter has been discussed at length and on the advice of ERYC the proposed restriction is “No Parking between 10am and 11am Monday – Friday”. (Details of the proposal are below).

It is hoped this will result in minimum inconvenience to residents whilst making it easier for residents and visitors to park.

In order to implement the proposal the Parish Council needs to demonstrate it has the support of the village.   Please show your support by signing the petition – copies can be found in the village shop, with Councillors Jack Wray and Trevor Thomas and with the clerk.

Details of the Proposal:- The proposal is that the “No Parking between 10am and 11am Monday – Friday” will be enforced through yellow lines (half the normal width- as Bishop Burton is a conservation village) along the roads noted below:

Puddingate House – School Green - to the A1079

  • Yellow lines from A1079 from Woodridge House along the Woodridge House side of the road to Puddingate House.
  • It is proposed that a gap will be left for residents that normally park their cars on the “Woodridge” side of the road. (any residents affected please discuss with Jack Wray)

“The Green”

  • Yellow lines from the white lines along the Johnson’s pond sides of the road to the end of the road. (ERYC to advise if need white lining on the junction)
  • It is proposed that a gap will be left for residents that normally park their cars on this side of the road. . (any residents affected please discuss with Trevor Thomas)

 

To prevent people parking on the other side of the road it is proposed that:

Puddingate House to the A1079

  • Double Yellow lines from A1079 to the Mere and around School Green -opposite side to Woodridge House and up Joby Lane (on both sides)

“The Green”

  • Double Yellow lines from the white lines along “The Green” side of the road to the end of the road. (ERYC to advise if need white lining on the junction)

Note: a map containing the proposals is attached to each petition.

If anyone wishes a petition or has any queries or concerns please do not hesitate to discuss with any of the councillors or the Clerk

Many thanks
