RESIDENTS living nearby the Gloucestershire County Cricket ground are being urged to submit their suggestions as part of a parking review of the surrounding area.

RESIDENTS living nearby the Gloucestershire County Cricket ground are being urged to submit their suggestions as part of a parking review of the surrounding area.

A number of issues have already been identified, including obstruction of private drives and dangerous parking around corners and junctions.

In addition to the parking review, GCCC is also looking at ways to sign the part-time, no entry restrictions that take place on match days, reducing the need for temporary signs and ongoing costs of temporary traffic orders.

Any suggestions, which may include additional areas where restrictions should apply, need to be submitted to the council’s highway department by September 27.

Issues raised will be considered and, if acceptable, will be turned into a proposed scheme which GCCC will consult with residents on again later this year.

This work has been identified as a priority by the Bishopston, Cotham, Redland Neighbourhood Partnership.
