Listerdale estate parking

Residents living close to the shops opposite the Tanyard, close to the service road near Wickersley clock, have often raised concerns with us about parking in the area. The shops have previously raised concerns about cars being parked all day and preventing customers from parking nearby, whilst waste collection vehicles have been unable to get down streets at certain times. And as we previously reported, the police had raised concerns about taxis picking up customers for the pubs in the evening. As a result, last year council staff undertook a survey of possible measures that could be taken to try to ease the difficulties.

Taking into account the views raised by residents and by statutory consultees, over the next couple of weeks households in the area will be contacted again with revised proposals. A further round of formal consultation will then take place, we anticipate starting in June.

We expect these revised proposals to include:

  • Time restrictions on parking outside the shops
  • Further parking restrictions around junctions to try to keep these clear at all time
  • A night time experimental taxi rank in the bus stop – but not outside the Three Horseshoes pub

However, there was very little support suggested for a residents’ parking zone, so this idea is not being taken forward at this time.

We are conscious that there are no easy solutions to the parking issues, and what works for one shop or household may adversely affect another. We are of course available to speak to residents affected, but we would urge residents to consider the revised proposals carefully and ensure that they respond in writing to the second, formal part of the consultation – the revised proposals will not be finalised until after people have had this further chance to make their comments.
