Chance to have a say on street’s parking ban bid


Residents have just over two weeks to have their say on plans to paint double yellow lines on a residential road.

West Sussex County Council opened a consultation on plans to introduce parking restrictions on Longmere Road, West Green, on Wednesday.

The proposal includes double yellow lines on sections of Longmere Road as well as at the junctions of Longmere Road with London Road and St Georges Court.

The cul-de-sac provides the only access to Crawley Youth Centre and St Georges Court. The youth centre is home to a nursery as well providing the Sea Cadet training base.

In the proposal, Tony Kershaw, the county council’s head of law and governance, described the road as ‘prone to traffic congestion during peak periods’. “This is exacerbated by vehicles parking in too close proximity to the junction with A2219 and parking so as to obstruct the bus footway and dropped crossing points,” he wrote.

Comments on the plan must be submitted by September 11. They can be submitted via the website, by emailing or by post to TRO Team, West Sussex County Council, The Grange, Tower Street, Chichester, PO19 1RH.
