Valley Park Review 2017

2017 Statutory Consultation on Proposed Amendments to Traffic Management measures in Valley Park


Since the 2015 Traffic Regulation Order in Valley Park additional issues have been highlighted to Test Valley Borough Council (TVBC). In summary, these are related to parking issues around the Schools and concerns raised by residents about the restrictions agreed at that time. Reports of other parking issues have been received from residents.
In June TVBC wrote to every property in Valley Park seeking comments. The proposals have also come about as a result of the responses received during that informal consultation.


The proposals

New lengths of No Waiting at any Time – Parts of Katrine Crescent at the junctions with Ouse Close, Medway Drive and Swale Drive. In addition this restriction is proposed at the start of Acorn Grove and on part of Castle Lane between Burley Down and Thirlstane Firs.
New lengths of No Waiting, Monday to Friday 8 – 10 and 2 – 4 are proposed in Percivale Road.
New lengths of No Waiting, Monday to Friday 10 – 11 and 2 – 3 in Castle Lane stub end west of Calshot Drive.
Removal of Parking Zone Monday to Friday 10 – 11 and 2 – 3 from Beaumaris Close, Caernarvon Gardens, Calshot Drive, Salcombe Close and Warwick Close.
Note: It is legally not possible to increase any existing or proposed restriction after this Statutory Public Consultation. However it is possible for other parking restrictions to be reduced. Should any street within the existing Zone be removed from the Zone, measures to reintroduce to the Zone will not be considered by Test Valley Borough Council for a number of years.
