I’m sure everyone has been delayed on Warley Hill by the parking problems caused by the new store….we gave you an update in August on a number of things we were trying to do including the introduction of double yellow lines.
This is now being progressed and a consultation is currently underway (see the signs on Warley Hill). This probably explains it best:
The South Essex Parking Partnership (Borough of Brentwood)
(On Street Parking and Waiting Restrictions)
(Amendment No.19) Order 201*
STATEMENT OF REASONS
Since the opening of the Tesco store in Warley Hill, Brentwood Councillors have received complaints that vehicles are parking outside the store causing congestion and traffic flow issues, along with reduced sight lines when vehicles exit Tesco car park. Warley Hill, on the east side of the road outside the Tesco store, is subject to a prohibition of waiting from Monday to Saturday between the hours of 9am to 6pm. The request from Brentwood Borough Councillors is to replace the current restriction with a prohibition of waiting at all times (double yellow lines) so that enforcement can be carried out at all times. It is acknowledged that some vehicles park on the current restriction during the prohibited time and take a chance that they will not receive a penalty charge notice. However, it is generally agreed that double yellow lines are more respected and may reduce the amount of vehicles parked in contravention.
The proposed Order will better facilitate the passage of traffic using the road and improve sight lines, at all times, for vehicles exiting Tesco’s car park; which will avoid danger to persons or other traffic using the road and for preventing the likelihood of any such danger arising.
This is a transcript of the order that lets you know what to do if you wish to support or object the proposals, the deadline is 6th February:
