Turning area at the end of a cul de sac frequently used to park cars making it difficult to gain access to adjacent driveways and awkward for delivery drivers and refuse lorries.

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 in the region of £3200.00 to cover legal work, consultation and associated procedural / administrative functions. The cost of the lining and signing work is additional.
The County Council 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.
