Harrison Road Parking

Closed 30 Nov 2018

Opened 1 Nov 2018


You may have heard about or taken part in the 2016 council survey asking for views about pavement  parking in the residential area between Harrison Road and Melton Road. There was a very good response to the survey, so thank you to all those who took part.

The response from residents was overwhelmingly in favour of some form of Controlled Pavement Parking (CPP) in the area. The council would now like to offer residents an opportunity to have their say on the council’s CPP proposals and to comment on other options to improve residential parking in the area.  The options being offered by the council include:

  • Controlling nuisance pavement parking – but also allowing pavement parking where it can be shown to be necessary and safe for pedestrians
  • Introducing residents’ only parking zones.
  • Making any two-way streets one-way to allow safe parking on both sides, and creating short stay ‘shoppers’ parking close to Melton Road junctions.

A number of Rushey Mead residents have raised safety concerns for pedestrians, and inconsiderate non-residential parking on pavements along Harrison Road including the adjoining roads as highlighted below.

The consultation looks at potential solutions to improve parking for residents will have an impact on residents living in:

  • Broadhurst Street
  • Cannon Street
  • Portman Street
  • Glen Street
  • Agar Street
  • Jermyn Street
  • Acorn Street
  • Leire Street
  • Arbour Road
  • Flax Road
  • Moores Road
  • Gipsy Road
  • St Michael’s Avenue
  • Lancashire Street
  • Stafford Street
  • Shanti Margh
  • Edensor Street
  • Magnus Road
  • Harrison Road
  • Northumberland Avenue
  • Marfitt Street 

We would like to hear views about proposals from residents living in the affected area in and around Harrison Road, commuters, businesses, occasional or regular visitors, anyone using as a through-route, and others living or working in the city.
