OLVESTON - Olveston waiting restriction review


Representations have been made to the Council to introduce new and amend existing waiting restrictions in Olveston village to deter motorists from parking at inappropriate and inconvenient (to other road users) locations, particularly during the school day. 

Following the successful introduction of waiting restrictions in the immediate vicinity of the primary school and Olveston village, some proposals to further improve the extents of some of the restrictions have been put forward by parents and parish councillors.

A review of the restrictions was undertaken during 2018. It was concluded that some amendments to the waiting restrictions in the vicinity of the school would be appropriate.

Purpose of Scheme

To reduce inappropriate parking near the school, reduce local traffic congestion and improve pedestrian safety (particularly for school pupils).

Proposed Scheme

To reduce the extent of the at any time (double yellow line) waiting restrictions outside the layby north of the junction between Elberton Road and The Street.

To extend the existing at any time (double yellow line) restriction on The Street (to the east of its junction with Elberton Road) outside the property "Rock Ridge", to replace an existing advisory keep clear H–bar marking.

To introduce new waiting restrictions (single yellow lines) operational from 8.30am to 9.30am and from 3pm to 4pm Monday to Friday on:

  1. East and west side of The Street from its junction with Elberton Road in a southerly direction to its junction with Vicarage Lane / Church Hill.
  2. Between the existing double yellow lines on Elberton Lane outside the Old School House.

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.
Target Audience All residents
