Emersons Green Waiting Restriction Review - Consultation 2

Funding has been prioritised by the former Kings Forest Area Forum to review the current waiting restrictions in Emerson’s Green, including Folly Brook Road.

Following meetings and site visits with the local Councillors and review of requests received over the last 5 years, it is proposed to modify existing waiting restrictions and introduce new waiting restrictions which include:

  • No waiting at any time (double yellow lines)
  • No waiting during prescribed hours (single yellow lines)

The purpose of this scheme is to restrict dangerous areas of parking and maintain bus access currently hampered by indiscriminate parking, whilst ensuring that there is adequate parking provision for residents and visitors accessing the local shops and businesses.


It is proposed to introduce no waiting at any time restrictions (double yellow lines) to cover junctions/accesses and areas where traffic parking can reduce visibility and impact safety. The proposals include the conversion of existing advisory white keep clear markings, to no waiting at any time restrictions.


The first consultation brought to light some areas that residents felt needed to be included in the proposals, for more information you can read the feedback report which is on the consultation page for the first consultation. The following roads are where additional restrictions have been added to the previous proposals:

  • Church Farm Road
  • Bishop Road
  • Pinkers Mead
  • Baynton Meadow
  • Wadham Grove

There is a separate consultation for the Westons Brake area.

Summary of Results



Consultation Topic Local highways and transportation projects
Geographical area Emersons Green
Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
