Public consultation on proposed parking schemes

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

Primrose Hill area, Kings Langley (21-2)

Chorleywood area-wide review (21-1)

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


Primrose Hill, Kings Langley area review

We consulted addresses in the Primrose Hill area of Kings Langley in October 2021 to find out whether there is local support for improved parking restrictions, such as new permit parking or yellow lines, or changes to current restrictions. We sent a survey letter to people in all the streets in our study area where we have received a request for new or changed restrictions, 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.

Why are we consulting?
We received requests for new or improved parking restrictions from people in Primrose Hill and Railway Terrace. We want to know if the public as a whole supports these requests, or not. 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.

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 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 "21-2 Primrose Hill, Kings Langley area parking review".

What happens next?
Consultation ended on the 25 October 2021 and we will report the outcomes to your local ward Councillors before any decision is made.

Chorleywood Area-wide Review

We consulted every address in central Chorleywood in July 2021, to find out whether local people want improved parking restrictions, such as new permit parking or yellow lines, or changes to current restrictions. We sent a survey letter to people in all the streets where we have received a request for new or changed restrictions to find out what they want. We will also be consulting key local groups so that they can help shape any future scheme.
 
Why are we consulting?
We received requests for new or improved parking restrictions from people in 28 streets, before January this year. We want to know if the community as a whole supports these requests, or not.

Once we have clear confirmation of what people want 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.

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 will also review the layout and effectiveness of existing Permit Parking Zones (also known as ‘PPZs’ or 'CPZ').

What can you expect?
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 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 will initially consult 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 to be reviewed.

What happens next?
Consultation closed on the July 2021 and responses will be analysed over the summer. We will report the outcomes to your local Councillors in the Autumn.
 
Who are we consulting?
This consultation was open to the general public but we are 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 are 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). 

Consultation areas
The area we consulted is shown on the plan below, which also shows which of the four slightly different surveys has been sent to each street. The four areas to which we have sent a dedicated survey are:


Area 1 (addresses in central Chorleywood and Parkfield not currently with Permit Parking. The survey for addresses in this area can be accessed here: Chorleywood Area 1 'General' Survey 


Area 2 (addresses in central Chorleywood in an existing CPZ). The survey for addresses in this area can be accessed here: Chorleywood Area 2 'Existing CPZ' Survey


Area 3 (addresses at the Southern End of Quickley Lane) where parking improvements have been proposed. The survey for addresses in this area can be accessed here: Chorleywood Area 3 'Quickley Lane Southern End' Survey


Area 4 (addresses in the Chorleywood Bottom area) where parking improvements have been proposed. The Survey for addresses in this area can be accessed here: Chorleywood Area 4 'Chorleywood Bottom' Survey

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 have been published and we are seeking your views through the survey below.

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.

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 have now been published, here: Detailed Design (January 2022)   This shows the proposed design of a Permit Parking Zone, along with some minor changes to existing restrictions.

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.

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

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.

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.

1 - Cranefield Drive, Lemonfield Drive, Leavesden
2 - Talbot Road, Rickmansworth
3 - Astons Road and Main Avenue, Moor Park
4 - High Street, Bedmond
5 - Hazelbury Avenue, Abbots Langley

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

The District Council is reviewing the success of this new Zone and considering whether the design could be improved to help local people and the public park more easily, now that the scheme has been in operation for six months.

The review started in October 2021 with a review of feedback since the start of operation and will include a survey of people at addresses in the Zone, which is to be programmed in 2022. The review considers the design of the parking places and yellow line waiting restrictions to determine what changes could improve the experience of road users parking locally.
