Parking alterations - Brook Street, Brookfield Close, Shugars Green, Mill Gardens and Plaiters Close, Tring 

We worked with ADL Traffic and Highways Engineering Ltd to consult residents and businesses on proposals to alter the existing parking arrangements at Brook Street, Brookfield Close, Shugars Green, Mill Gardens and Plaiters Close, Tring by introducing:

  1. A permit parking area (Controlled Parking Zone J) - permitting only permit holders to park in that area
  2. Additional no-waiting-at-any-time (double yellow line) restrictions - to prevent obstructive parking
  3. Additional shared use bays permitting either resident permit holder parking or a maximum of two hours parking for those without a permit, with no return within two hours.

Concerns had been raised regarding inappropriate parking by commuters and visitors on Brook Street and the surrounding roads in Tring. As a result, residents have struggled to park close to their properties.

Residents, statutory consultees and businesses affected by the proposals were consulted over a four-week period from 21 September 2023 to 20 October 2023.

The proposals

The proposed alterations to the existing parking arrangements on Brook Street and the surrounding roads are shown in Appendix A and outlined below, as is the permit eligibility zone:

  • Introducing a permit parking area for permit holders only between Monday to Saturday, 8am to 6pm, from the junction with Brook Street to the end of the cul de sac on the following roads:
    • Plaiters Close
    • Mill Gardens
    • Brookfield Close
    • Shugars Green
  • Introducing permit parking bays for permit holders only between Monday to Saturday, 8am to 6pm, on the eastern side of Brook Street between its junction with Shugars Green and the entrance to the Silk Mill Business Park, where unrestricted parking is currently permitted.
  • Introducing no-waiting-at-any-time (double yellow line) restrictions on both sides of Brook Street, Shugars Green, Brookfield Close and Mill Gardens.

We consulted 244 potentially affected properties and businesses in the area. From the 65 responses that were received, 30 objections were raised. When responses were analysed by street, it was clear that the majority of residents of Brook Street, Brookfield Close and Mill Gardens supported the proposed restrictions.

Residents from Plaiters Close or Shugars Green did not support the inclusion of these roads in any form of permit parking zone. It is likely that there will be some form of displacement of vehicles to these roads, from vehicles that will not be eligible for permits. In light of this, it was recommended that Shugars Green and Plaiters Close were removed from the proposed permit parking zone.

A second consultation was held on the revised proposals over a three-week period from 7 February to 1 March 2024. A The consultation area was the same as the previous one.

    Berkhamsted Leisure Centre

    In March 2019, our Cabinet considered options for the redevelopment of Berkhamsted Leisure Centre, including refurbishing the existing centre or building a new one. A new-build leisure centre was selected as the preferred option and a construction partner was selected to help develop the proposal in more detail.

    Extensive consultation was carried out with stakeholders including Sport England, sports groups and local schools which helped to shape the proposals for the new leisure centre. This was followed by a public consultation in February 2022.

    Since the initial decision to proceed with exploring the new-build option, a number of factors, (including the ongoing impact in leisure of COVID-19, inflation rises and the increase in energy prices), have occurred which have impacted considerably on the cost of delivering the new-build proposal.

    In view of this, we will be revisiting all the options available for Berkhamsted Leisure Centre. We will consider all the feedback that has been provided by stakeholders and the public as part of this process and are still committed to providing an improved and modernised leisure facility for Berkhamsted. The outcome of the options appraisal will be decided in July 2023.

    Station Road, Hemel Hempstead

    We worked with ADL Traffic and Highways Engineering Ltd to consult with stakeholders including residents, businesses and statutory consultees as concerns have been raised regarding the current gap in the existing no-waiting-at-any-time (double yellow line) restrictions on Station Road on the approach to The Plough (Magic) Roundabout.

    Currently, vehicles are parking on the verge and occasionally straddling the verge and the road itself. This is impeding visibility for vehicles attempting to pull out from Cotterells and is causing an obstruction to passing traffic on Station Road, both of which have contributed to concerns about road safety at this location.

    Proposed restrictions

    • To prevent inappropriate and dangerous parking, no-waiting-at-any-time (double yellow line) restrictions are proposed.

    For further details, please view the:

    A consultation was held between Wednesday 22 June 2022 until noon on Thursday 21 July 2022.

    Waterhouse Street Taxi Rank, Hemel Hempstead

    We worked with ADL Traffic and Highways Engineering Ltd to consult residents and business on the proposal to convert a section of the existing taxi rank on Waterhouse Street in Hemel Hempstead into pay-to-park bays and disabled badge holder-only bays.

    Evidence suggests that the current taxi rank is not being used anywhere near capacity. This length of space could therefore be used more efficiently.

    Residents and businesses affected by the proposals were consulted over a four-week period from 25 March 2022 to 18 April 2022. A letter and plan (see Appendix B below) were posted directly, which explained the proposals and the reasoning behind them. Consultees were able to respond via email or post.

    The statutory consultees were consulted over the period from 23 March 2022 to 18 April 2022. A letter and plan were emailed directly, and consultees were invited to submit any comments via email. There was a total of 19 consultees. The letter sent is included as Appendix C (see below). There was a total of 19 consultees.

    The proposals

    The proposed alterations to the existing parking arrangements on Waterhouse Street are shown in Appendix A and outlined below:

    • To provide more parking provision for members of the public using the town centre
    • To increase the town's provision of disabled parking.

    The proposal comprises the provision of the following:

    • Proposed disabled parking bay: Monday to Sunday (8am to 8pm), three hours no return within two hours (seven bays)
    • Proposed pay-to-park bay: Monday to Saturday (8am to 6pm) one hour no return within one hour (approximately seven spaces).

    • No waiting and no loading at any time restrictions to the areas indicated in the plan. These restrictions will mean that vehicles may no longer park on these sections of Marlowes and Bridge Street at any time.
    • Implement disabled badge holder bays with a maximum three hours stay, no return within two hours. These will be located on the western side of Marlowes on the stretch south of the Coombe Street junction.
    • Addition of ‘goods vehicles loading only’ bays which will be located on the western side of Marlowes directly below the junction with Coombe Street along with taxi rank bays located opposite on the eastern side of Marlowes, south of the bus stop.
    • Minor amendments to existing double yellow lines at the entrance to the Carey Baptist Church to improve sight lines when exiting the car park. In order to implement the proposed changes listed above, sections of existing yellow lines will need to be removed, which are highlighted in the plans.

    The proposals and plans for Marlowes and Bridge Street can be found in Appendix A of the report below. We consulted residents and businesses along Marlowes. The scheme proposals were provided in the form of a plan and an accompanying covering letter, which were delivered to all businesses along the proposed area as well as a section of residential properties effected by the proposals. The proposals were also advertised in the Hemel Hempstead Gazette, site notices were erected in the affected areas and details were available online.

    The consultation period ran from 11 November 2020 until 3 December 2020.

    Proposed parking restrictions on High Street and Manor Street, Berkhamsted

    We worked in partnership with Project Centre Ltd to carry out a statutory consultation to understand if there is support for the proposed amendments to the double yellow line markings and proposed loading ban at the junction of High Street and Manor Street in Berkhamsted.

    We have been made aware of indiscriminate parking taking place close to the junction, resulting in the sight lines of vehicles exiting Manor Street becoming hindered. It is planned, subject to support, to extend the double yellow lines to improve the safety of both pedestrians on the footway and motorists on the highway.

    The proposals:

    • Extension of the existing double yellow lines restrictions at the junction of High Street and Manor Street, which will also include a loading ban that will operate at all times.
    • The purpose of extending the current double yellow lines is to improve safety of both pedestrians and vehicles at the junction.

    A letter and plan of the proposals were hand delivered to all addresses located in the near vicinity of the proposals. Site notices were installed near the location, a public notice was published in the Berkhamsted and Tring Gazette and details were available on our website. Residents and businesses were asked to submit their comments in relation to the scheme proposals via email or in writing.

    The consultation period ran from 11 November 2020 to 3 December 2020.

    Proposed parking restrictions on Wolsey Road, Hemel Hempstead

    Following a periodic review of The Borough of Dacorum (Hemel Hempstead) (Prohibition and Restriction of Waiting) (Consolidation) Order 2003, minor errors were discovered within the schedules relating to Wolsey Road, Hemel Hempstead. It was therefore considered necessary to make the above traffic order in order to correct those errors and to better reflect the way the restrictions in that order currently exist on street and to ensure that the order corresponds with existing signs and lines.

    The consultation ran between 11 March and 8 April 2020. A public notice was published in the Hemel Hempstead Gazette newspaper on Wednesday 11 March and site notices were placed in Wolsey Road.

    Proposed parking restrictions on Lockers Park Lane, Bury Hill and Melsted Road, Hemel Hempstead

    We worked in partnership with Project Centre Ltd to consult to propose to make changes to the current parking arrangements on Lockers Park Lane at the junction with Bury Hill and Melsted Road to improve safety at school drop-off and pick-up times.

    The proposals:

    • To apply single yellow line restrictions to the areas indicated on the consultation plan, which will operate Monday to Friday, 8.15am to 5.30pm.

    These restrictions will mean that no vehicles should park on this section of Lockers Park Lane, Bury Hill and Melsted Road between the intended hours of operation.

    The proposed Lockers Park Lane, Bury Hill and Melsted Road single yellow line restriction plan can be found in Appendix A of the report (below) along with the consultation letter.

The scheme proposals were provided in the form of a plan and an accompanying covering letter, which were delivered to all residents affected by the restrictions as well as to The Collett School. Notices were also put up on site. Comments were submitted either via email or in writing.

    Proposed parking restrictions on Heath Lane, Hemel Hempstead

    We received instruction from Hertfordshire County Council, the highway authority, to make changes to the current parking arrangements due to safety issues on a section of Heath Lane, between Cemetery Hill and the Heath Lane Children's Centre.

    The proposals suggest replacing the section of parking on the eastern side of Heath Lane with:

    1. A double yellow line restriction to operate at all times
    2. A loading restriction to operate between 7.30am and 9.30am and 3pm and 4.30pm, Monday to Friday. This will mean that no vehicles will be able to wait in this area between these times.

    We consulted residents and the proposals were issued in the form of a plan and an accompanying covering letter, which were delivered to all properties affected by the proposals.

    The consultation period ran for 28 days from 15 May to 12 June 2019.
