Dear Sir / Madam,
 
Proposed Parking Restrictions, Richings Park
 
Please find attached a plan regarding proposed parking restrictions on Bathurst Walk and Wellesley Avenue, Richings Park.  These changes have been proposed by Iver Parish Council to tackle key parking problems in the area and have been granted funding through the Wexham and Iver Local Area Forum.
 
There are a number of changes shown on the attached plan and these include:
 
1.    Remove single yellow line parking prohibition (No parking between 11am and noon Mon-Fri)  and replace with permitted parking 2 hours max stay permitted parking (Mon-Fri 9am to 5pm) on north side of Bathurst Walk to the west of Wellesley Avenue.  This is to improve parking for local shops/businesses.
2.    Introduce double yellow lines (no waiting at any time) on the western side of Wellesley Avenue to the north of Bathurst Walk.  This is to improve access for emergency vehicles, waste collection and deliveries.
3.    Introduce single yellow lines (No parking between 11am and noon Mon-Fri) on east side of Wellesley Avenue to the north of Bathurst Walk.  This is to improve access for emergency vehicles, waste collection and deliveries.
4.    Introduce single yellow lines (No waiting Mon Fri 9am to 5pm) on north side of Bathurst Walk to the east of Wellesley Avenue, to formalise existing parking arrangement.  Also provide access protection markings on south side of road.
5.    Introduce double yellow lines (No waiting at any time) to protect visibility at junction with Thorney Lane South.
6.    Introduce double yellow lines (No waiting at any time) to protect the entrance to Bathurst Close and provide sufficient visibility. 
7.    Change the permitted parking restriction from 2 hours to 1 hour max stay (Mon-Fri 9am to 5pm) in the layby on the south side of Bathurst Walk to the east of Wellesley Avenue.  This is to improve parking for local shops/businesses through increased turnover.
8.    Introduce access protection markings on the section of Wellesley Avenue to the south of Bathurst Walk to protect private accesses to properties.  Please note that these markings are advisory only and not enforceable.
9.    Introduce No waiting at any time (double yellow lines) to protect visibility at Somerset Way Junction.
 
The aim of these proposed changes is to tackle the current congestion issues occurring around the Richings Park shopping and business area by the use of additional and amended waiting restrictions.  Whilst we acknowledge there is to be a likely increase in the future demand for commuter parking in the vicinity of Iver Station due the Cross Rail Development, these proposals are required to be implemented as soon as possible to improve the environment for the local community to address the existing problems
 
This is a formal consultation process to gather your views and therefore ensure we make the best informed decision to make a Traffic Regulation Order.  A Traffic Regulation Order is necessary to ensure all parking restrictions are enforceable. 


Objections to the proposal together with the grounds on which they are made must be sent in writing to the contact details below:
The deadline for responses is the 19 June 2015.

Digital copies of the consultation documents will be on the BCC have your say webpage. 
 
Following consultation the consultation decision report will also be available on the BCC webpage.  Please note there will be a period of time, whilst the consultation is collated and the decision report prepared and agreed.
 
Thank you for taking the time to read this letter, if you have any further questions about the proposed changes, or require assistance to take part, please call our contact centre on 0845 2302882.  

Yours faithfully,

We have been notified that a petition and some objections have been raised against the proposed changes. These changes form part of a long term plan to introduce a residents parking/ restricted parking scheme in Richings park that will benefit the Residents and Businesses. There will be plenty of room once we prevent our area being used as a free carpark by Commuters many of whom travel great distances to park for free in Richings Park. If you have objected then please think again as the money will not be available again!
