February 2023: Consultation for proposed parking restrictions for Marconi Drive, Davy Way, and Stephenson Drive at Waterwells Business Park

Gloucestershire County Council are introducing area wide waiting restriction changes in Gloucester & Hardwicke.  The formal public consultation period has now finished and objections are being considered.

The Council was also approached by local businesses in both Quedgeley and Hardwicke regarding the unsatisfactory on-street parking situations on various roads in the Waterwells area. This area is composed mainly of commercial premises and there have been concerns about accessibility, particularly by articulated vehicles, to these businesses being compromised by inconsiderate parking. Some of this parking is very close to roundabouts and junctions so can also have a negative impact on visibility and therefore safety.

The proposals for the other streets in Quedgeley are designed to address safety and visibility concerns in narrow, residential streets which would supplement Rule 243 of the Highway Code.
