Changes to Parking Restrictions in Various Parts of Henley

on-street-parkingThe County Council is responding to a number of requests for changes to parking restrictions in various parts of Henley.

In summary the proposed changes are to:-

  • create Resident Permit Holders only parking in the section of Bell Street outside Nos. 94-102, with associated double yellow lines (No Waiting at any time);
  • adjust the location of the Pay & Display bays outside Rupert House School and to have an adjacent length of No Waiting 8am-6pm Monday-Saturday for the school’s use;
  • provide parking restrictions in the section of highway outside 11 Northfield End, which will allow some evening/Sunday parking;
  • rationalise the parking in Northfield End (north of Kings Road) to create Resident Permit Holders only places and two 20-minute parking places in front of the shop;
  • allow some evening/Sunday parking on Bell Street (near Adam Court);
  • clarify the arrangements in the layby on Reading Road (south of Station Road) by creating a formal loading bay (10 mins max. stay);
  • create additional Residents Permit Holders only parking in Albert Road by changing the existing Pay & Display parking and also by having 11 individual bays on the west side of the road partly on the footway.

These changes require an amendment to the Traffic Regulation Order and were presented at the Henley Town and Community Committee Meeting on Tuesday this week.  Councillor David Silvester who was a member of the public at the meeting spoke up for the Northfield End Convenience Store owner who would like 2 dedicated spaces for staff and a dedicated space for delivery vehicles – both of which the Committee did not consider appropriate as this service is not afforded to convenience stores on Reading Road, Station Road and Greys Road, where there are yellow lines.

Henley Town Councillors will discuss this at the Full Town Council on the 5 May and a decision will then be made at an Oxfordshire County Council meeting on 21 May.

OCC are seeking the views of residents, businesses and other organisations who may be affected.  Full plans are available to view at Henley Library in Ravenscroft Road.

Any objections to the proposal, specifying the grounds on which they are made, and any other representations, should be sent in writing to the Director for Environment and Economy (ref. DMT/Henley) Speedwell House, Speedwell Street, Oxford, OX1 1NE.  no later than 17 April 2015
