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 of the Traffic Regulation Order process ran for a period of 21 days which started on the Thursday 22nd November 2018. All Objections and representations recieved with respect to the proposal were included within the Final Objection Report as attached.

The decision was made by the Group Manager for Highways & Traffic on the 18th February 2019 based on all the evidence and comments provided to implement the Resident Parking Zone 18 and the objections recieved be acceded to in part and the following adjustments, being of minor significance, be included in the Order to be sealed as set out below:


Proposed Bear Flat RPZ:

 


  • That single yellow lines be introduced across all driveway and garage entrances within the Zone, rather than double yellow lines.

     

  • That funding be identified in a future Transport Improvement Programme to enable appropriate parking surveys to be carried out in the Oldfield Ward if the Bear Flat RPZ is implemented.  



Proposed parking restriction in Alexandra Park:


 


  • That the charging hours are reduced from 9am – 4pm to 9am – 3pm. With the first hour being free, this would mean that users of the bowls club or allotment holders could park their vehicle from 2pm, and then park for free for the rest of the day. Afternoon bowls matches would then be unaffected by the proposed parking restrictions, but the long-stay parking issues would be still addressed;


 


  • That the first parking bay to the north of the main entrance (before the toilet block) is removed (total of 3 cars length) to prevent obstruction of the wild flower bed. These 3 parking spaces would be relocated to the other side of the park, with the proposed parking bay on the south east corner being extended by 3 car lengths;


 


  • That the parking bay to the east of the viewpoint is reduced by a length of 2 metres to allow for the placement of the recycling bins.


 

.Signs will be erected to remind drivers to share the space with pedestrians.

Temporary parking suspensions will be introduced around the area to allow the required parking bay lining works to be carried out. Attached is a plan showing the dates that on-street parking will be restricted in each road. To make these suspensions less intrusive for local residents, parking will be suspended on one side of all of the affected roads within the Zone for 3 days, followed by the other side for a further 3 days, as indicated on the attached plan.

 

The new parking restrictions will come into force on 24th April 2019. From that date all vehicles will need a permit to park in permit holder bays between 8am and 6pm, Monday to Saturday. Please contact the Parking Services Team on Tel: 01225477133 regarding how to set up an MIPermit account and purchase Zone 18 permits.


A copy of the 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.
