Proposal to extend Three Bridges parking zone

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail



A proposal to extend the Three Bridges Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) will be discussed at the next meeting of the East Crawley County Local Committee.

The proposals are contained in a report to the Committee from County Hall highways experts.

They include Northgate Road, incorporating Dyers Almshouses, and The Birches.

The report says: “Despite the introduction of the CPZ, as well as Civil Parking Enforcement in Crawley Borough in April 2010, the limitations of the existing waiting restrictions and inconsiderate parking by non-residents in unrestricted roads such as The Birches have been a major concern for many residents in Three Bridges.

“In Northgate Road, incorporating Dyers Almshouses, demand for parking from residents and visitors has increased over the years. It is now at risk of outweighing the available parking space in the road.

“Northgate Road is a standalone zone, so there is very little alternative if all parking spaces are taken at a particular time. Unsurprisingly, residents have expressed concern over their inability to park, despite having paid for an annual parking permit.

“There is also concern that residents in Dyers Almshouses may not be able to have visitors on a regular basis. Officers are keen to increase the parking that is available in the road.”

Richard Burrett, Committee Chairman, said: “The proposals have been drawn up in response to issues raised by various groups, including residents, traders and the Three Bridges Community Forum.”

The meeting is being held in the Longley Room, Crawley Library, on Wednesday February 16, starting at 7.30pm.
