Public Notice

CENTRAL BEDFORDSHIRE COUNCIL PROPOSES TO INTRODUCE A
PROHIBITION OF WAITING AND LOADING ON VERGES AND FOOTWAYS

Central BedfordshireReason for proposal: The proposed Order is considered necessary for avoiding danger to persons or other traffic using the road, preventing damage to the road and for facilitating the passage of traffic, including pedestrians. Parking on verges and footways is a hazard and an inconvenience to other road users and causes damage to the highway and underground services. The prohibition covers all of Central Bedfordshire, but is only enforceable when the necessary traffic signs have been installed. Residents and businesses would be consulted before any restrictions are made enforceable in their street.

Effect of the Order:

To introduce No Waiting and No Loading at any time on verges and footways in all roads in Central Bedfordshire, except for the M1 motorway, A1, A5 and A421 trunk roads.

Further Details of the proposal may be examined during normal opening hours at Ampthill, Arlesey, Barton, Biggleswade, Dunstable, Flitwick, Houghton Regis, Leighton Buzzard, Potton, Sandy, Shefford, Stotfold and Toddington Libraries or online at www.centralbedfordshire.gov.uk/publicstatutorynotices. These details will be placed on deposit until 6 weeks after the Order is made or until it is decided not to continue with the proposal.

Objections: should be sent in writing to the Transportation Manager, Bedfordshire Highways, Woodlands Annex, Manton Lane, Bedford MK41 7NU or e-mail centralbedsconsultation@amey.co.uk stating the grounds on which they are made by 24 December 2013.

Order Title: If made will be "Central Bedfordshire Council (Prohibition of Waiting and Loading on Verges and Footways) Order 201*"

As far as im concerned, this cannot come quickly enough. People have become far too lazy when it comes to the parking of their motor vehicles, just look at Eaton Bray high street any day of the year. I wish they had taken it a stage further to address the issues of peoples driveways being blocked

A very good idea except our local councillor says it will only be invoked where the parish council requests it. That is rubbish. The PC does not have the competence or the training to approve or disapprove and anyway it is the right of the individual as they pay the tax. What happens if the majority of residents want it but the PC does not. Who applies the law if the PC rejects the order in a village. Somebody is joking.
