Proposed Zone T Resident Permit Parking Scheme in Tring
We are seeking to implement a Zone T Resident Permit Parking Scheme in Tring, to include Clarke's Spring, Station Cottages and Station Road.
Since the introduction of Zone TS outside Railway Cottages in Tring and a single yellow line in Clarke's Spring in 2007, to deter commuters wanting to park near to Tring railway station, it has been decided to review the current restrictions and to provide
greater parking protection for the residents.
Vehicles now regularly park on footpaths, causing obstructions to pedestrians in Clarke's Spring at the weekends. This can make it difficult for residents to park near to their properties and causes an unwanted nuisance.
We consulted residents on the proposals for Zone T - a plan and an accompanying covering letter were delivered to all properties within the proposed area. Comments were then submitted to us. The consultation period ran from 6 December 2017 to 12
The final proposals will be subject to the statutory legal process.

Proposed Zone O Resident Permit Parking Scheme in Apsley
We're seeking to introduce a residents' parking scheme in Apsley, Hemel Hempstead, (known as Zone O) which will include the following roads: Orchard Street , Manor Avenue, Henry Street, Winifred Road, Storey Street, Weymouth Street, Kents Avenue, Millbank,
and a section of Featherbed Lane.
Following a number of concerns raised by local residents regarding the parking arrangements on these roads, we wished to engage with residents to determine whether there was support for parking restrictions in the area. Outlying roads, including Avia
Close, Sealy Way and London Road, were also consulted.
An increasing number of commuters using Apsley railway station have been parking in residential streets. These proposals intend to provide residents with adequate parking near to their properties. The proposals aim to provide permit holder only and
limited waiting between the hours of 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday.
A plan and an accompanying covering letter were delivered to all properties within the proposed area, and comments were invited. The consultation period ran from 6 June 2018 to 29 June 2018.
