Gloucestershire County Council is proposing improvements to parking and traffic management in the Uplands and Lansdown to help residents find parking spaces near their homes more easily.
Proposals include merging existing permit zones, 1, 2, and Lansdown Zone, and extending these to include new areas creating a new zone called Stroud Zone A.
The new zone will include a combination of parking permit areas, shared use bays and the introduction of no waiting at any time (double yellow lines).
The areas included in these changes include the eastern section of Stroud. This includes roads such as, Bowbridge Lane, Bisley Road, Castle Street, Middle Street, through to Slad Road, Folly Lane and Springfield Road.
There are sections of road just outside the zone, where a small amount of double yellow lines are also proposed to maintain traffic flow and junction access.
The proposal aims to increase residents’ chances of finding a parking space near their homes. The proposals include permit zones for local residents and businesses and time limits for non-residents parking.
Informal consultation was held in 2021 and feedback from the community has helped to shape and develop the current proposals.
The consultation will run from Wednesday, 29 March to Friday, 28 April and feedback will be used to decide if any changes are made.
