Action being taken to tackle all-day parking in residential Yate streets

August 31 2017

A SERIES of waiting restrictions are set to be introduced in the centre of Yate to tackle an increasing problem of all day parking in residential streets. The development of the Riverside retail and leisure complex next to Yate Shopping Centre, as well as the introduction of limited parking within the centre’s car parking areas, has led to more drivers parking all day in surrounding roads and causing access problems. Concerns have also been raised from residents living near local primary schools about parking during the start and end of the school day. South Gloucestershire Council is now consulting on the introduction of waiting restrictions in 24 affected streets around the town centre, as well as a plan to cut the time allowed in the leisure centre and Kennedy Way car parks from 12 hours to a maximum of four The consultation deadline for comments had originally been in mid-August but it has now been extended to September 1.
