Proposed parking restrictions on Wood Lane End and Redbourn Road, Hemel Hempstead

We worked in partnership with Project Centre Ltd to carry out a statutory consultation to understand if there was support for single yellow line waiting restrictions along Redbourn Road and Wood Lane End in Hemel Hempstead.

The restrictions aim to deter vehicles from parking along each of these roads and to improve traffic flow at busy times. The proposals also improve safety for both road users and pedestrians. 

The proposals

No waiting restrictions applied to the areas indicated in the plan shown in the report below. These restrictions will mean that vehicles may no longer park at these sections of Wood Lane End and Redbourn Road at the following times:

  1. Wood Lane End: Monday to Saturday, 8.30am to 6.30pm
  2. Redbourn Road: Monday to Saturday, 8am and 6pm, and Sunday 10am to 5pm.

A letter and plan of the proposals were hand delivered to all addresses located in the near vicinity of the proposals. Public notices were erected along the roads where changes are proposed, a public notice was published in the Hemel Hempstead Gazette and details of the proposals were available to view on this website.

2020 consultation

Proposed parking restrictions on Marlowes and Bridge Street, Hemel Hempstead

We worked in partnership with Project Centre Ltd to consult to propose to make changes to the current parking arrangement on Marlowes to make the town centre more accessible to disabled badge holders, provide more loading facilities for businesses and to introduce more accessible taxi ranks.

Additional no waiting and no loading restrictions are also proposed to improve safety at the Marlowes roundabout and at the end of the Marlowes with the junction of Bridge Street.

We propose the following to achieve these objectives:

  • No waiting and no loading at any time restrictions to the areas indicated in the plan. These restrictions will mean that vehicles may no longer park on these sections of Marlowes and Bridge Street at any time.
  • Implement disabled badge holder bays with a maximum three hours stay, no return within two hours. These will be located on the western side of Marlowes on the stretch south of the Coombe Street junction.
  • Addition of ‘goods vehicles loading only’ bays which will be located on the western side of Marlowes directly below the junction with Coombe Street along with taxi rank bays located opposite on the eastern side of Marlowes, south of the bus stop.
  • Minor amendments to existing double yellow lines at the entrance to the Carey Baptist Church to improve sight lines when exiting the car park. In order to implement the proposed changes listed above, sections of existing yellow lines will need to be removed, which are highlighted in the plans.

The proposals and plans for Marlowes and Bridge Street can be found in Appendix A of the report below. We consulted residents and businesses along Marlowes. The scheme proposals were provided in the form of a plan and an accompanying covering letter, which were delivered to all businesses along the proposed area as well as a section of residential properties effected by the proposals. The proposals were also advertised in the Hemel Hempstead Gazette, site notices were erected in the affected areas and details were available online.

The consultation period ran from 11 November 2020 until 3 December 2020.

Proposed parking restrictions on High Street and Manor Street, Berkhamsted

We worked in partnership with Project Centre Ltd to carry out a statutory consultation to understand if there is support for the proposed amendments to the double yellow line markings and proposed loading ban at the junction of High Street and Manor Street in Berkhamsted.

We have been made aware of indiscriminate parking taking place close to the junction, resulting in the sight lines of vehicles exiting Manor Street becoming hindered. It is planned, subject to support, to extend the double yellow lines to improve the safety of both pedestrians on the footway and motorists on the highway.

The proposals:

  • Extension of the existing double yellow lines restrictions at the junction of High Street and Manor Street, which will also include a loading ban that will operate at all times.
  • The purpose of extending the current double yellow lines is to improve safety of both pedestrians and vehicles at the junction.

A letter and plan of the proposals were hand delivered to all addresses located in the near vicinity of the proposals. Site notices were installed near the location, a public notice was published in the Berkhamsted and Tring Gazette and details were available on our website. Residents and businesses were asked to submit their comments in relation to the scheme proposals via email or in writing.

The consultation period ran from 11 November 2020 to 3 December 2020.

Proposed parking restrictions on Wolsey Road, Hemel Hempstead

Following a periodic review of The Borough of Dacorum (Hemel Hempstead) (Prohibition and Restriction of Waiting) (Consolidation) Order 2003, minor errors were discovered within the schedules relating to Wolsey Road, Hemel Hempstead. It was therefore considered necessary to make the above traffic order in order to correct those errors and to better reflect the way the restrictions in that order currently exist on street and to ensure that the order corresponds with existing signs and lines.

The consultation ran between 11 March and 8 April 2020. A public notice was published in the Hemel Hempstead Gazette newspaper on Wednesday 11 March and site notices were placed in Wolsey Road.
