The Mead Lane area in Saltford was subject to a temporary mooring trial between December 2016 and October 2018. Informal moorings which have been used by boaters for a number of years are in the Council’s riparian ownership and adjoin the highway (Mead Lane).
During the first year of the trial, 25 feedback forms were returned, 10 were objections to the trial and 15 were in support of the new arrangements. Monitoring by local residents showed a high degree of compliance with the mooring trial durations, and showed high demand for the moorings.
A plan of the mooring trial signage design can be found here:
In September 2018, it was agreed that "quiet zone" would be introduced between 8pm and 8am; new signage will be installed accordingly.
Managing Parking at Mead Lane
At the start of 2017, new white “H” lines were laid opposite residential driveways and essential business access points. These lines are advisory, and indicate not to park on these lines in order that free access can be enjoyed by the residents.
Proposals for single yellow line parking restrictions that prohibit overnight parking, to reduce instances of anti-social behaviour and obstruction, were advertised by the Highways Department for public comment during August/September 2017. Objections were received to the scheme and, as a result, it is not proposed that parking restrictions will be introduced via a Traffic Regulation order at this location.
