Blaise Castle Estate – Proposed New Local Parking Restrictions

Bristol City Council is planning to introduce a new Traffic Regulation Order for the surrounding adopted highways, prior to the introduction of car parking charges at the Blaise Castle Estate (and also the Oldbury Court Estate).
In order to implement this regulation, there is a need to make changes to the traffic management in the surrounding streets and roads before the introduction of car parking charges for the main car park (and overflow car park) – to be set at £2 a day (the same as at Ashton Court).
The Council is seeking views on what needs to be addressed as a result of this proposed new regulation.  This may include suggestions for additional locations where double yellow lines or junction protection would be beneficial, or suggestions where proposed restrictions should be changed.  Comments on  the proposed  charge are also welcomed and the Council is inviting comments and queries on the proposals before developing the legal TRO notice.
Please see Blaise Castle Estate proposals for more information.

Emailed comments should be submitted by Monday 30 July to:

Of course, with this apparent “fast-tracking” of a TRO for the roads in the vicinity of the Blaise Estate car park, it does beg the question as to when BCC’s Legal Team will find the time to progress and implement the Westbury Parking Review that Highways completed in December 2015.
