Following pressure from many local residents and your councillors, the council are intending to consult on introducing residents’ parking around Dartmouth Road and the Pools in the spring.

Councillor Philip Peake said: “The success of the new pools means that there has been more pressure for space on Dartmouth Road and side roads such as Thorpewood Avenue and Sydenham Park Road. Residents have been finding this difficult so the plan for the zone must help that situation while making sure that the shops on Dartmouth Road do not suffer. Free short term bays on Dartmouth Road should be kept and the period in the Perry Vale car park should be increased to two hours to match the one behind Sainsbury’s.”

The council will also be considering a zone around the Honor Oak Park shops and looking at the existing zone around Manor Mount for changes. If you have any views on parking in these areas please do let us know.

as a resident of Windley Close I am also concerned about the parking on Derby Hill what with the swimming baths, train station, shops, job centre, council workers and just about anyone who want a parking space, there is never a space for us residents if we have to go out during the day, as I am registered disabled this makes things very hard for me it would be of help to everyone living on the estate to have residents parking
