Parking - a victory for common sense!

Parking - a victory for common sense!

The council had been planning to install double yellow lines along Park Road, School Road and Sandy Lane to deal with the problems caused by parking by Kingston shoppers, particularly on Sundays.

The HWA broadly welcomes this but we have successfully lobbied for some fine-tuning to ensure that off-peak parking isn’t lost unnecessarily. We’re pleased that we have been successful in this effort. The council’s Traffic and Parking department announced yesterday:

“Due to the poor weather over the last week, the double yellow lines have not been installed but every effort will be made to install them as soon as possible.

“I met with the Hampton Wick Association and we have made some slight adjustments to the layout, namely an additional resident parking bay will be installed opposite No 40 Park Road and the single yellow line in Park Road adjacent to its junction with St Johns Road will remain as single.

“As with all new measures, these will be monitored over the coming months to see how they work.”

The extra resident parking bay will be welcomed by residents without off-street parking, and the ability to park at the High Street end of Park Road in the evenings and overnight will also be helpful for the restaurants and pubs on the High Street and for Chase Lodge Hotel.

We’d like to thank Mick Potter, Parking Policy Manager at LBRuT, for listening to the HWA and for taking a flexible and common sense approach.
