Experimental Order to prohibit verges and footway parking within Southcote

In April 2013 and April 2014 Southcote Neighbourhood Action Group carried out informal consultations with residents of Southcote on the issue of footway/verge parking; as this was an issue raised by many residents who felt parking on the verge and footway was not only unsightly but also an inconvenience for pedestrians using the footway. Following presentation of these consultation results to the Traffic Management Sub Committee it was agreed at the June 2014 committee to proceed with an experimental order to prohibit parking on the verge/footway within the following 7 streets :  

  • Southcote Lane
  • Ashampstead Road
  • Brunel Road
  • Circuit Lane
  • Frilsham Road
  • Gainsborough Road
  • Virginia Way
