Parking orders on an estate next to the route of Stafford’s new western access road are being introduced this week.
Parking restrictions are being introduced on roads around Castlefields, to the west of Stafford town centre. Double yellow lines are being installed along the length of Martin Drive – which will form the gateway to the new Stafford Western Access Route off the Newport Road. In addition, there will be double yellow lines laid along Redgrave Drive and both double yellow and time restricted parking along Rose Hill.
Residents have been assured this week that the impact of the restrictions will be carefully monitored, with amendments being made if necessary.
Staffordshire County Council’s economic growth leader Mark Winnington, who is also the local county councillor, said:
The new parking restrictions are being introduced this week and residents will be able to see a real difference. We will of course be closely monitoring the situation and further consulting with people living in the area. We’ll also be checking that parking is not displaced elsewhere. We have introduced the restrictions along Martin Drive as this will form the gateway to the Stafford Western Access Route from Newport Road. We are also keen to potentially extend new regulations to other areas which may be affected by parking displacement. We know parking has been an issue on these roads and so the new restrictions should improve visibility and safety.”
