As a result of Blaby District Council asking the County Council to investigate the provision of parking in the district due to its car park strategy, the opportunity arose for officers to carry out an area-wide study of parking restrictions and review the controls within the area.
Therefore, in the interests of road safety, facilitating opportunities for businesses, congestion management and improved parking opportunities for local residents, officers are therefore proposing to implement No Waiting At Any Time restrictions around the junction of Cedar Crescent and Coventry Road; Cutters Close and Coventry Road junction, Cutters Close and Sharpe Way junction, and the Thornton Drive junctions with Church View and the Health Centre.
In addition, consideration has been given to on-street parking facilities within the area. Officers proposed residents preference parking with 1 hour limited waiting Monday to Saturday 8am to 6pm in one section of Coventry Road, and residents only parking in two sections of Coventry Road.
It was also proposed to formalise the School Keep Clear Markings at the Greystoke Primary School, Thornton Drive by making them mandatory; the restriction to apply Monday to Friday 8am to 4pm.
To implement Resident Parking, No Waiting At Any Time restrictions and formalise School Keep Clear Markings within Narborough.
The scheme has been subject to public consultation to which 46 objections were received and considered.
