Zone O CPZ implementation in the Apsley area. Survey open from Wednesday 18th December 2019.

Closed Submit your comments

Overview

Dacorum Borough Council are looking to implement a new Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) in the Apsley area.

The CPZ is proposed to improve the safety and environment through deterring commuters from parking inappropriately which results in serious inconvenience to the residents living in the zone. As we have to provide a “safe zone”, inevitably, the amount of kerb line currently being parked on will reduce particularly around junctions. This is offset by the reduction in non-resident parking.

Two rounds of consultation on the proposed Zone O have been completed which includes properties on Orchard Street, Manor Avenue, Henry Street, Winifred Road, Storey Street, Weymouth Street, Kents Avenue, Millbank, Sealy Way and part of Featherbed Lane. The Council considered the responses and made amendments to the proposals which were then consulted with respondents generally indicating their support for parking controls. A number of alterations to the proposals have been made after reviewing the feedback from the previous consultation:

  • Replace proposed single yellow line with resident permit parking, located outside 42 Weymouth Street
  • The proposed short stay bays on the eastern end of Kents Avenue have been changed to permit holder only.
  • The proposed short stay bay on Featherbed Lane between Henry Street and Manor Avenue has been amended to a double yellow line.
  • The proposed bus bay on Weymouth Street has been amended to permit holder only.
  • Permits bays to be introduced along the eastern side and north eastern end of Millbank as well as the areas to the front of 16 to 23 Millbank which are accessed via Kents Avenue.
  • The hours of operation have been reviewed and will go later into the evening on week days and Sunday enforcement has been included.

The proposals

  • Hours of operation of the parking zone will be Monday – Friday 10:00 to 20:00 and Saturday – Sunday 10:00 to 18:00
  • Maximum of three vehicle permits per household
  • Proof of residency is required, only residents within the dotted blue line on the plan are included in the proposed scheme
  • Vehicles must be registered to the resident’s address within the zone
  • Permits and visitor parking sessions are virtual (no documents to display in vehicle) and are obtained and used through the council’s website
