Background:

The Bear Flat Residents’ Association carried out a survey in October 2017 asking local residents if they would support the introduction of a Residents’ Parking Zone (RPZ) in the Bear Flat area. 

The results of this survey showed that there had been an apparent shift in support for a RPZ (compared to a previous survey carried out in 2016) with 52.4% of the 556 (68.9%) households that responded stating that they would support the introduction of a RPZ.

Funding for a RPZ was subsequently approved in the Council's 2018/19 budget, and the Traffic Management Team produced an outline design for a possible RPZ in the Bear Flat area shortly afterwards.  This design was the subject of a public consultation event held on the 21st June 2018, which was visited by around 400 people.  Officers from the Traffic Management Team collated and analysed all of the responses that were received, including those that were forwarded by email or post after the event. 

A number of specific design issues were identified at the consultation event and these were considered for possible inclusion into the scheme during the detail design of the proposals. 

The Cabinet Member for Development and Neighbourhoods Councillor Bob Goodman made the Single Member Decision on the 12th October to progress with the advertisement and consultation process of the Traffic Regulation Orders for the proposed Bear Flat Resident Parking Zone.

The Public Consultation Stage which will last for a period of 21 days will start on the Thursday 22nd November 2018. All Objections and representations with respect to the proposal for inclusion within the Final Report, together with the grounds on which they are made must be sent in writing to the 

Traffic Management Team, at Bath and North East Somerset Council, Lewis House, Manvers Street, BATH, BA1 1JG, by 13th December 2018, or by email to: transportation@bathnes.gov.uk.  

Comments received from the formal advertisement of the proposals will be considered by officers, before a final decision is made on whether or not to proceed with the proposed Bear Flat RPZ.  If it is decided to go ahead, it is currently anticipated that the RPZ would come into effect in April of 2019. 

A copy of the proposed Bear Flat Resident Parking Zone 18 plan and supporting documents can be seen on the right hand side of this page.


PERMIT ALLOCATION: In accordance with Bath & North East Somerset’s Resident Parking Policy and Parking Strategy which was approved earlier this year properties within the Zone who have no off-street parking provision will be entitled to 2 permits, properties with 1 off-street parking space will be entitled to 1 permit only, and properties with 2+ off-street parking spaces will be entitled to no permits. This is to ensure that the limited on-street parking stock within the Zone is made available to those with the greatest need.


 


All residents within the Zone whether they have access to off street parking or not WILL BE ENTITLED TO THE FULL allocation of visitor permits (100days or 1000 hours)


 


An off-street parking space is defined by the dimensions of 5 metres X 2.5 metres.
