Public consultation on proposed parking schemes

Three Rivers District Council is currently developing proposals for new parking management schemes in these areas:

Chorleywood area-wide review (21-1)

Primrose Hill area, Kings Langley (21-2)

Locally-important parking improvements (21-6)

Langleybury Lane parking improvements (21-4)

Sandy Lodge Way parking review (21-3)

Harefield Road parking review (21-5)

Rickmansworth West area-wide review (16-2)

Parsonage Close, Abbots Langley (16-1-3)

High Elms Lane, Garston - Proposed Parking and Access Improvements (14-5)

Ebury Road, Rickmansworth - Proposed improvements to parking places

Review of new 'CG' Permit Parking Zone, Croxley Green (21-8)


Primrose Hill, Kings Langley area review

We have published draft initial design plans and we are seeking your views through the survey below.

The proposal would improve parking in the area by prioritising on-street parking for local people, restricting parking to vehicles displaying a permit. This would promote easier, safer parking for residents, shoppers and visitors.

It would improve the local environment for everyone, including for people who do not drive but who are affected by parking, for example where it obstructs footways or blocks sightlines making it harder to cross the road.

Why are we developing this scheme?
We sent a survey letter in 2021 to people in all the streets in our study area, as well as key local groups to find out what they think is needed. This survey responded to requests for new or improved parking restrictions from people in Primrose Hill and Railway Terrace.

The outcome of this survey showed that there is support in some streets and now we are consulting on draft initial design proposals until 31 October 2022, to further gauge support and invite the public to help shape a possible future scheme.

Parking improvements will be delivered where there is support for them, subject to agreement from the relevant committee (the Infrastructure, Housing and Economic Development Committee) which will consider the results of our surveys.

How are we consulting?
We are carrying out the second stage of our standard three-stage consultation process to determine what solutions we can provide and what support there is for them.

This includes consultation on initial and then detailed design plans in streets where there is public support for parking restrictions before any statutory consultation.

Comments are invited from the public, as well as local residents and businesses in the area, by the 31 October 2022 You can comment using the survey form on the following link: Primrose Hill area parking survey

If you have any queries or comments, or if you want to request a paper survey form, please email: parking@threerivers.gov.uk quoting reference "21-2-2a Primrose Hill, Kings Langley area parking review".

What happens next?
Consultation will end on the 31 October 2022 and responses will be analysed and reported to local ward Councillors before any decision is made.

Chorleywood area-wide review

We consulted every address in central Chorleywood in 2021, to find out whether local people want improved parking restrictions, such as new permit parking or yellow lines, or changes to current restrictions.

Consultation area updates (December 2022)

Area 1 (addresses in central Chorleywood not currently with Permit Parking)
Proposed initial design plans have been published and we are seeking the views of the general public and people who live within the proposed scheme area until 9 January 2023. The survey for addresses in this area can be accessed here: Chorleywood Area 1 Consultation on proposed initial design plans 

Area 2 (addresses in central Chorleywood who already have permit parking)
Proposals are in development and will be published in the new year.

Area 3 (addresses at the Southern End of Quickley Lane) 
Following the initial consultation the decision has been made not to progress proposals in this area.

Area 4 (addresses in the Chorleywood Bottom area) 
The final proposal is being developed and will be published in the new year.

Background to the consultation

We sent a survey letter to people in all the streets where we received a request for new or changed restrictions to find out what they want. We also consulted key local groups so that they can help shape any future scheme.

We received requests for new or improved parking restrictions from people in 28 streets and we wanted to know if the community as a whole supported these requests, or not.

Parking improvements will be delivered where there is support for them, subject to agreement from the relevant committee (the Infrastructure, Housing and Economic Development Committee) which will consider the results of our surveys.

We are also reviewing the layout and effectiveness of existing Permit Parking Zones (also known as ‘PPZs’ or 'CPZ') in Chorleywood.

How the consultation process works
We are carrying out our standard three-stage consultation process to determine what solutions we can provide and what support there is for them.

This will result in consultation on initial and then detailed design plans in streets where there is public support for parking restrictions before any statutory consultation.

We initially consulted addresses in most streets in Chorleywood as they are near to a street where a request is made, or are already in a CPZ, which is being reviewed.

What happens next?
Consultation responses will be analysed and reported to local Councillors before any decision is made.
 
Stage 1 Consultation
This consultation was open to the general public but we were specifically seeking views from people at addresses within the four consultation areas set out below. Many streets are in existing ‘Permit Parking Zones’ (‘PPZs’), which we are also reviewing.

These four surveys were aimed at people whose road does not have Permit Parking (Area 1); people who already have Permit Parking (Area 2); and people in two small areas where we have some specific proposals - Quickley Lane, southern end (Area 3) and Chorleywood Bottom Area 4).

Rickmansworth West area - Proposed permit parking scheme

The District Council proposes to introduce a new permit parking scheme in some streets around the ‘Rickmansworth West’ area (as shown on the plans below).

Draft detailed design plans were published and comments were invited from the public, as well as local residents and businesses in the area, early in 2022. The results will be reported once a decision has been taken. We have analysed the responses we received and expect a decision later this Autumn.

The proposal would improve parking in the area by prioritising on-street parking for local people, restricting parking to vehicles displaying a permit. This would promote easier, safer parking for residents, shoppers and visitors.

It would improve the local environment for everyone, including for people who do not drive but who are affected by parking, for example where it obstructs footways or blocks sightlines making it harder to cross the road.

The plans have been shaped by feedback from the public, local residents and businesses over two stages of informal public consultation.

What is proposed?

The draft detailed design plan for the proposed parking scheme has been published and can be viewed here: Detailed Design (January 2022)   This shows the proposed design of a Permit Parking Zone, along with some minor changes to existing restrictions. Paper copies of this plan can be viewed on the noticeboards at Elm Way (opposite Wimpy), Uxbridge Road (opposite the BP station) and at the front of Three Rivers House (in Northway, Rickmansworth) or at Rickmansworth Library, High Street, Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire, WD3 1EH

Comments are invited from the public, as well as local residents and businesses in the area, by the 8 February 2022 using the survey form.  Survey now closed

How would the proposed scheme work?

The Zone would operate during the day (Monday to Saturday, from 8.30am to 6.30pm) in the streets listed below.

  • Only vehicles with valid permits would be permitted to park in these streets during this time.
  • Parking in bays at any other time would not be controlled. 
  • Permits would be available to residents, their visitors and other people with a legitimate need to park near local addresses.
  • Shoppers and other visitors would be able to park in dedicated short-stay bays, which would retain a free parking period but would require tickets to be displayed. This would help to make sure our enforcement is effective.

You can find out what a Permit Parking Zone looks like on our New Parking Schemes information page. You can find out how permit parking helps to prioritise parking for local people here Permit Parking Measures - Frequent Questions.

Streets included in the proposed Permit Parking Zone are listed below and shown on the plan:

Mount View                  Elm Way
Field Way                     Uxbridge Road (part)

Dellwood                      Park Way
The Highlands              West Way

scheme-area-map-png.PNG

Why are we consulting?

The proposed draft detailed design plan includes streets where respondents to a previous consultation confirmed that there was a parking problem and told us that they would support new parking controls.

People in some streets (such as Church Lane) told us that they did not want to be included in future proposals, so these streets have been removed from the scheme. You can see here the response to the previous stage of consultation.

Who are we consulting?

This consultation is open to the general public but we are specifically seeking views from people at addresses that would be directly affected by the proposed scheme.

In some cases different streets have received different letters to explain the different implications that we expect for each street, but the same survey is directed at all respondents.

If we don’t see clear support for new or changed parking restrictions in a street then it is unlikely that any scheme would be taken forward there.

Next stage

Following this consultation stage, a decision would be taken by the relevant committee, on whether to progress the scheme to the final, statutory stage of consultation or if the scheme should be changed in any way.


Parsonage Close proposed parking scheme, Abbots Langley

The District Council carried out surveys seeking views on a proposed design to address current parking problems in Parsonage Close and the eastern part of Abbots Road in the Spring of 2018. The relevant committee has now determined that no further scheme will be progressed in Parsonage Close and Abbots Road, except for:

  • Double yellow lines around the junction of Abbots Road (NE-SW arm) with Abbots Road (NW-SE arm) to a distance of ten metres in each direction (around two car-lengths) to protect visibility for people walking, cycling or driving around this junction;
  • Proposed double yellow lines in the Parsonage Close garage site and its access road, including the turning head at the western end of this road, to prohibit dangerous and obstructive parking and to make it easier and safer for drivers to turn around at the end of the road by keeping the turning head clear of parked vehicles.

You can view the proposed plan here. A formal Traffic Order will be advertised in early 2022.


Locally-important parking improvements 

Following an initial consultation, the District Council has published detailed design plans for sites around the district, to address parking problems that have been prioritised following public requests, including at:

Schemes at the following sites are still under development:

  • Gosforth Lane area, South Oxhey
  • Seacroft Gardens, South Oxhey
  • Talbot Road, Rickmansworth 

After the initial consultation, the District Council has decided not to progress schemes in the following areas: 

  • Astons Road (and part of Main Avenue), Moor Park
  • Hazelbury Avenue, Abbots Langley

 What is proposed?

These proposals are planned to improve the local environment for everyone, including for people who do not drive but who are affected by parking, for example where it obstructs footways or blocks sightlines making it harder to cross the road.

The detailed design plans for the proposed parking schemes in each area can be viewed here:

High Street, Bedmond 21-6-3-BM

Sandy Lodge Way parking review 

We are consulting addresses in Sandy Lodge Way, Northwood in March 2022 in response to a petition asking for new parking restrictions, due to parking problems. 

We want to find out whether there is local support for new parking restrictions. The petition we received requested only waiting restrictions (yellow lines). This would not work for local people or others who have legitimate parking needs, for example their visitors.

Our approach involves consulting on either minimal safety restrictions or, if residents prefer, a full Permit Zone similar to those at the south end of the road. This approach ensures that we maximise the amount of parking while managing how people park, and who parks there.

Comments are invited from the public as well as from local residents and businesses in the roads that would be affected by the proposals, by the 30 March 2022 using the Survey Form.

Survey now closed.

How are we consulting?

We will carry out our standard three-stage consultation process to determine what solutions we can provide and what support there is for them.

This includes consultation on initial and then detailed design plans in streets where there is public support for parking restrictions before any statutory consultation.

If you have any queries or comments, or if you want to request a paper survey form, please email: parking@threerivers.gov.uk quoting reference "21-3 Sandy Lodge Way parking review".

Next stage

We will report the outcomes to your local ward Councillors before any decision is made.

Parking improvements will be delivered where there is support for them, subject to agreement from the relevant committee (the Infrastructure, Housing and Economic Development Committee) which will consider the results of our surveys.

Once we have clear confirmation of what people think is needed, we will be able to design a basic parking scheme for them to comment on. If we don’t see clear support for new or changed parking restrictions in a street, then it is unlikely that any scheme will be taken forward there.

If you would like more information, please contact the District Council in writing or email parking@threerivers.gov.uk


Harefield Road parking review 

We are consulting addresses in the Harefield Road area of Rickmansworth in March 2022 to find out whether there is local support for improved parking restrictions, such as new yellow lines, possibly parking permits, or changes to current restrictions.

Comments are invited from the public as well as from local residents and businesses in the roads that would be affected by the proposals, by the 30 March 2022.

Survey now closed.

How are we consulting?

We will carry out our standard three-stage consultation process to determine what solutions we can provide and what support there is for them.

We have written a survey letter to people in all the streets in our study area, to find out what they think is needed. We will also be consulting key local groups so that they can help shape any future scheme.

This includes consultation on initial and then detailed design plans in streets where there is public support for parking restrictions before any statutory consultation.

If you have any queries or comments, or if you want to request a paper survey form, please email: parking@threerivers.gov.uk quoting reference "21-5 Harefield Road area parking review".

Next stage

Consultation will end on the 30 March 2022 and we will report the outcomes to your local ward Councillors before any decision is made.

Parking improvements will be delivered where there is support for them, subject to agreement from the relevant committee (the Infrastructure, Housing and Economic Development Committee) which will consider the results of our surveys.

Once we have clear confirmation of what people think is needed, we will be able to design a basic parking scheme for them to comment on. If we don’t see clear support for new or changed parking restrictions in a street, then it is unlikely that any scheme will be taken forward there.

Langleybury Lane parking improvements 

The District Council is investigating parking problems around St Pauls School, Langleybury Lane, Hunton Bridge.

Draft preliminary design plans have been published and we are seeking your views through the survey below.

Who are we consulting?

Comments are invited from the public as well as from local residents, school users and businesses in the roads that would be affected by the proposals.

Survey now closed.

Please send your response on or before the 11 July 2022 to make sure that your views can be considered in any future decision.

What is proposed?

These proposals include parking bays where our engineers consider parking would be safe and will not obstruct traffic flow, with parking restrictions elsewhere. These are intended to improve the local environment for everyone, including for people who do not drive but who are affected by parking, for example where it obstructs footways or blocks sightlines making it harder to cross the road.

The draft design plans for the proposed parking schemes can be viewed here: Proposed parking plan

Next stage

Following this consultation stage, a decision would be taken by the relevant committee, on whether to progress the schemes to the final, statutory stage of consultation or if they should be changed in any way.

What happens next?        

Parking improvements will be delivered where there is support for them, subject to agreement from the relevant committee (the Infrastructure, Housing and Economic Development Committee) which will consider the results of our surveys.

If you have any queries please contact the District Council in writing or by email at parking@threerivers.gov.uk, stating the reference 21-4.

 


High Elms Lane, Garston - Proposed Parking and Access Improvements

The District Council has proposed a new parking control scheme on this busy road, where competing demands for parking and access to the large schools and other facilities have led to complex parking and loading problems.

The proposal, which can be viewed here, is intended to keep this road clear of parked vehicles, to provide as much safe and useful parking as possible and to make it easy for drivers to drop off and collect students from the schools (as well as providing short-stay parking during the day for visitors to the schools and Crematorium).

The current proposal would involve some physical reconstruction of the road to provide a small amount of all-day parking (11 bays), with 74 bays limited to 20 minutes waiting (before 9am and after 3pm). Between 9am and 3pm, 66 of these bays will be available for short-stay parking (up to 90 minutes) aimed at users of the Crematorium. There are currently only 44 bays where parking is safe and does not cause obstruction.

The District Council is currently preparing detailed plans incorporating our responses to the comments received during the recent consultation.

If you have any queries or other comments, please email parking@threerivers.gov.uk stating the scheme reference number above.

What happens next?

All comments received will now be reviewed and taken into account prior to any decision on changes to the current parking arrangements. Any changes are contingent on approval from the local Highway Authority and are not expected to be introduced until at least 2020-21. All decisions on proposed parking schemes are taken by the District Council. 


Review of new 'CG' Permit Parking Zone, Croxley Green

Three Rivers District Council introduced a new Permit Parking Zone last year and is now reviewing the effectiveness of this scheme.

The scheme design was carefully shaped in response to local views, over several years of development and we want to ensure that it is working well now and will continue to help people park in the future.

Who are we consulting?
This consultation is open to the general public but we are specifically seeking views from people at addresses within new Permit Parking Zone, reference ‘CG.’

You can comment using the survey form on the following link: Survey now closed

What you can expect

We are surveying every address in the Zone and are also inviting comments from the public.

We will carry out our standard consultation process to determine what solutions we can provide and what support there is for them. In streets where there is public support for changes to parking restrictions, any further proposals would require informal consultation on design plans before any statutory consultation.

Parking improvements will be delivered where there is support for them, subject to agreement from the relevant committee (the Infrastructure, Housing and Economic Development Committee) which will consider the results of our surveys).

What happens next?
The current consultation will close on the 14 July 2022 and responses will be analysed over the summer. We will report the outcomes to your local Councillors later this year.

It is important to complete the survey, if you want to request a paper survey form, please email: parking@threerivers.gov.uk quoting reference "21-8 Croxley Green area wide review”
