Commuter parking shifts to Cossins Road

The long-awaited extension of the Redland Residents Parking Zone to Canowie Road and St Oswalds Road has shifted the commuter parking to the next nearest road outside the zone. 

Cossins Road regularly sees twice as many parked cars than just a year ago, which residents say  has changed the character of the leafy area by Redland Green park.

Parking on pavements, blocked driveways and road stand-offs have become commonplace. The area is a thoroughfare for children and with two schools, a nursery and a pre-school nearby, there is great concern about road safety.

Residents have taken the issue to the council and are about to launch a campaign. But, with an influx of cars arriving in Redland and Westbury Park since commuter parking was stopped on the Downs, it’s a problem that just won’t go away.
