The Downs & Sneyd Park Parking Restrictions: Statutory Consultation

Stoke RoadThe Public Consultation on proposals to introduce double yellow lines, single yellow lines, 4-hour limited waiting and disabled bays on the Downs took place between 18 August and 21 September 2014.

The consultation generated over 200 responses; many with detailed suggestions as to what measures would best address the various issues. Where possible these were incorporated into the final scheme for progressing the requisite Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) by way of a Statutory Consultation.

On 30 April, the Statutory Consultation went live on the Council’s website:

  1. Gillian Sparkes says:

    I am very much against restricting parking on The Bristol Downs until and unless a more comprehensive bus route is put in place throughout the City. To get to the BRI, Bristol Dental Hospital, Bristol Eye Hospital or indeed for any central Bristol shopping or entertainments, I rely on parking on The Downs near a bus stop. Buses along Kellaway Avenue are very limited and indirect.

  2. Andrew Marsden says:

    I write as a long time, regular user of free parking on the Downs. Dog walkers like me, footballers, bird watchers, families and the multitude of other Downs users need the parking. All day free parking for commuters for should be prevented.

    To this end I suggest that parking up to, say, three hours should be free. Thereafter a very high deterrent charge should be imposed.
