Re: Petition submission for Parking Issues in the Tring Vale Area
Thank you for your petition submitted to Nottingham City Council on 5th November 2018 highlighting concerns with parking around the Tring Vale Area.
Firstly, I’m very sorry that you are experiencing difficulties with inconsiderate non-residential parking within your local community. This is a difficult situation and one that is unfortunately a common occurrence up and down the country in the vicinity of many large hospitals. As you have stated in your petition, the Council has already introduced restrictions under a Traffic Regulation Order in this area, which was approved by the residents. I can also confirm that amendments to the “No Waiting at Any Time” (Double Yellow Lines) are also scheduled to be implemented for the Desford Close/Tring Vale junctions shortly.
On another positive note and including your requests from the
recent public meeting, there are measures that we can consider to
alleviate the problem of inconsiderate parking. Below I have set
out what the options might be for further consideration. The
desired outcome of your petition is for the Council to help resolve
the issues that affect the area daily. The main bullet points of
your petition refer to the inconsiderate parking that occurs across
official residential dropped kerbs and enforcement. Where official
residential dropped kerbs are present, a Civil Enforcement Officer
can issue a Penalty Charge Notice to the offending vehicle if the
access is blocked. Further information is available on either of
the following links below
https://www.nottinghamcity.gov.uk/contact-us/have-your-say-comments-compliments-and-complaints/ . This service is only available from 07.30 am until 5.00 pm Monday to Saturday; anything out of these hours will need to be reported to the Police as an obstruction on the non-emergency 101 number.
In relation to restrictions that have been introduced elsewhere, I can confirm that recent restrictions that have been implemented in surrounding areas under a Traffic Regulation Order are all fully enforceable by a Civil Enforcement Officer; this includes Valmont and Girton Road. With increasing financial cuts to local authorities, prioritising for local area improvements is an impossible task. Subject to future funding being made available, we will consider overhauling the current restrictions to consult through the statutory process on a residential permit scheme.
As a Council, we have worked hard to build up a high quality integrated transport system that provides choice, flexibility and opportunities to travel to work, access education and other services through a number of sustainable travel modes. I hope this ensures you that as an authority we are working hard to focus on the needs of our citizens through a cleaner more sustainable transport vision.
Finally, may I thank you again for bringing these matters to our attention and trust that the proposed way forward mentioned above will go some way to alleviating your concerns on this matter.
Yours sincerely, Mark Jenkins, Service Manager, 01158765036
