Request for double yellow line

Reported in the Road Traffic Signs and Road Markings category anonymously at 12:39, Friday 10 May 2019

I just wondered if anything can be done (like double yellow lines?) to keep this very narrow space and therefore access to our house, accessible? Outside house no 8.

  • Yellow lines. To introduce double yellow lines we need to promote a Traffic Regulation Order. This is a process whereby an Order is drafted by our Legal Department, describing the proposed restriction. This will be advertised during a formal consultation process and comments invited. If no objections are received, the Order can be brought into operation with lining and signs on the ground. If there are objections, these will be reported at the appropriate Committee where a decision will be made taking into account levels of support and objections. The cost for this is £3120 to cover legal work, consultation and associated procedural / administrative functions. On top is the cost of lining and signing work. The County has no resources for this work as a County scheme but is able to pursue if external funding is made available. We work this way with local Towns and Parishes who wish to promote such restrictions. The onus is on them to propose a scheme which suits their local needs and then we can act in an advisory capacity and carry out the required legal aspects. All this can take anywhere from 6 month to a year. You may wish to take this up with your local Parish or Town Council who may be aware of other similar requests. One further point and potential problem with a scheme in such a location is that during the consultation we are likely to receive many objections from local residents who, should the scheme be implemented, would be prevented from parking outside their homes. If this were the case the scheme would likely be rejected at the committee hearing.
