South Gloucestershire Council (SGC) has opened a public consultation on plans to change the Traffic Regulation Order governing parking restrictions in Pear Tree Road.
The move is associated with the introduction of Civil Parking Enforcement, which moved the responsibility for enforcing parking regulations from the police to local authorities.
Council officers say that enforcing parking restrictions is difficult if the markings on the road do not match the restrictions described in the relevant order.
In Pear Tree Road, a 47m stretch of road between Aspleys Mead and Cooks Close currently has no double yellow lines on either side of the road, whereas the order describes restrictions for the same stretch.
The Council is proposing to bring the order into line with the road markings, i.e. reduce its scope. There will be no change to the double yellow lines on the road.
Illegal and inconsiderate parking along Pear Tree Road has been a regular issue of discussion at Bradley Stoke’s Safer and Stronger Community Group meetings. Customers visiting the Tesco Express and other stores at Bradley Pavilions are said to be the biggest culprits.
The Council’s consultation runs until Thursday 25th February 2010.
