Changes to parking in zone 15 on Camden Road and Gay’s Hill
This is a big win for those aligned to our local councillor Richard Samuel’s thinking last Autumn. He tipped us off about this extremely complicated Traffic Regulation Order (TRO 17-014 North East Outer Area, Bath) which had three items that affected us. He objected officially on our behalf and leafleted us all asking us to send our objections through as well. Many of us did this and collectively this seemed to do the trick. In essence, our collective efforts:
- averted the loss of residents parking bays at the NE end of Camden Road. This is a relief to those of us who already struggle to get a space in zone 15 after 7pm in the evening.
- stopped a motor cycle bay being built close to the junction of St Stephen’s Road on Camden Road which looked like an ‘accident waiting to happen’. Far safer to leave your bike on St Stephen’s Road.
- supported the loss of one parking bay on Gay’s Hill which makes turning left from Belgrave Crescent a bit safer.
Evening parking difficulties
While we’re on the subject can anyone tell me why parking is unrestricted after 7pm. This is when parking is most needed for tired people returning home and we often can’t get a space?
