Residential parking tarmac verge
Since yellow lines have been put down the flats - fat residents
are having to park on the road birchgrove crescent which is leaving
everyone on the street struggling for parking.
Coldean lane is an example of utilising the space positively providing parking for their residents.
The grass verges are poorly maintained as is.
We residents NEED parking.

Thank you for your petition. The highway is provided so that
people can pass and repass in a safe manner and not as an area for
parking, the verges are provided for various important reasons
including to reduce run-off of rain and domestic water, and is a
key method used for flood prevention on the road. There’s
also aesthetics, drainage for footways and to help as a division
between the carriageway and the footway, it is our policy not to
harden off verges for these reasons.
Even if the City Council were to consider the proposal in this road, the cost of these works if we were to proceed would be prohibitive and include re-kerbing the road on both sides, excavating the banks and providing retaining structures on both sides, structurally improving the verges so that they could be parked upon safely, there is also no budget provision for this type of scheme. I am sorry I cannot support this request.
