UNDER REVIEW: Councillor updates Bushey residents on troublesome road

 Published on: 13th December 2021   |   By: Jake Levison   |   Category: Uncategorized

A Hertsmere borough councillor has updated BUSHEYnews after we reported on parking problems on Melbourne Road.

Residents on the road say they are having major problems with the high number of parked cars on the pavement, which they say are blocking access and forcing them to use the main road to pass by.

Linda Silver, councillor for Bushey Park Ward, said: “I would like to report that the parking problems in this road are under review.

“Letters have been sent by Hertsmere Borough Council to the residents asking for their opinions on the future need to assist those living in this street with the parking problems, especially for those who have great difficulty in managing with the obstructive parking that is taking place.

“The general feeling of the residents is that double yellow lines would be the best way forward and this recommendation will be looked at early in the New Year.

“I would insist on proper Enforcement to help improve the difficulties the residents have and to make it easier for cars to drive down Melbourne Road.

In the meantime, the ward PCSO is monitoring the road regularly and giving out tickets to those causing an obstruction.”

    The issue of pavement parking causing an obstruction on Melbourne road was going to be dealt with by the council a few years ago but to date, it still exists. As all of the houses at the top end have off-street parking there should be no problem with double yellow lines to eliminate this problem. Plenty of parking spaces on the old Bushey golf club grounds.
