PARKING issues in a busy area of Burton have seen council chiefs outline a raft of proposals to try to improve the situation for frustrated residents.
Staffordshire County Council has published a series of plans in response to issues in Lower Outwoods Road, Belvedere Road, Calais Road and Foston Avenue due to lack of places to park up.
The proposed changes will see alterations to existing parking restrictions in a bid to help put an end to the problem.
The plans state: “This comes in response to concerns raised by residents and the county councillors regarding the current parking issues which exist on the above-mentioned roads and the lack of parking around the surrounding areas.
“These proposals aim to introduce changes to the existing parking restrictions on the affected named roads.
“The changes will prevent incorrectly parked vehicles causing obstructions and potential hazards, as well as creating safe and legal parking for residents at sites where parking is in demand.”
An order prohibiting waiting at any time will be put in place along Lower Outwoods Road, from a point approximately 11 metres southwest of its junction with St Margaret’s and on the southeast side of the carriageway, in a southwesterly direction for a distance of approximately 19 metres.
An order will also apply on Belvedere Road, from the junction with Bradmore Road on the northeast side of the carriageway and in a northwesterly direction for a distance of 14 metres.
The plans could also see the removal of existing prohibition of waiting at any time orders along parts of Calais Road and Foston Avenue.
The closing date for any objections to the proposals is Friday, June 13.
Anyone who would like to object in writing should send them to 1 Staffordshire Place, Tipping Street, Stafford, ST16 2lP.
