Dacorum parking restrictions

Have your say on proposals for a Zone O controlled parking zone

Closes Friday 29th June 2018 Submit your comments

Background

Following a number of concerns raised by local residents regarding the parking arrangements on Orchard Street, Manor Avenue, Henry Street, Winifred Road, Storey Street, Weymouth Street, Kents Avenue, Millbank and a section of Featherbed Lane, Dacorum Borough Council wish to engage with residents to determine if parking restrictions are required in the area.

The proposal includes areas for resident parking, limited waiting bays and yellow line waiting restrictions.

The increased demand for parking by commuters using Apsley Station has led to an increase in the number of commuters parking inappropriately in residential streets. This proposal intends 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.

During the hours of operation (Monday to Friday 8am – 6pm) anybody wishing to park on-street in the resident parking areas indicated on the accompanying plan must either have a valid permit or resident visitor parking session. This does not apply to the limited waiting bays.

A list of the current Dacorum Borough Council resident annual permit and visitor parking session charges is set out below.

Valid visitor parking sessions – Visitor parking sessions expire 12 months from purchase. They are available for purchase and use 24/7 365 days online.

*All permits and visitor parking sessions are issued in a virtual (paperless) format, residents will not receive a paper permit, the vehicle registration will be used by Civil Enforcement Officers to confirm if a valid permit has been purchased. Please ensure that you understand that permits are purchased and issued online and that visitor parking sessions are purchased, issued and used on-line before you respond to this consultation.

Enforcement and exceptions

How will the proposals be enforced?

The Council’s Civil Enforcement Officers will patrol the area during operational hours to ensure compliance. Any vehicle parked and not complying with restrictions will be issued with a Penalty Charge Notice (a fine).

What about deliveries, traders carrying out work and carers?

Deliveries may be carried out by vehicles within five minutes. Anything longer (including traders carrying out work and carer visits) will require the visitor to park in areas away from the limited waiting bay during operational times.

Have your say

We want everyone who lives in the proposed Zone O along with all those residing in the outer lying roads to have their say on the proposal. Please answer the questionnaire below by Friday 29th June.

You can view the plans by clicking on ‘proposed changes’ or they are also available at the reception desk at The Forum, Marlowes, Hemel Hempstead HP1 1DN.

If you require a paper copy, translation or other format please contact Project Centre who are managing the consultation on behalf of Dacorum Borough Council:

What happens next?

When the responses from the consultation have been collated and a report produced, your councillors will decide whether to put the scheme into place or abandon it. If it is decided to proceed with the proposals a statutory consultation will be undertaken.

Your views will help to achieve the aim of meeting local resident concerns over parking issues and will assist in refining the design and minimise possible objections at a later stage. Any final proposals that result from the consultation will need to go through a statutory legal process before any work can be implemented.
