WICK AND ABSON - Waiting Restriction Review


Inconsiderate parking is taking place in roads around the Milford Avenue shops, and other locations in Wick.  The demand for on-street parking and associated obstructive parking is causing access and visibility difficulties for local residents.

Purpose of the Scheme

To introduce waiting restrictions to deter all day and often obstructive parking in Abson Road, Boyd Close, Church Road, Court View, High Street, Holbrook Lane, Manor Road, Mendip View, Milford Avenue, Naishcombe Hill, Parkers Avenue, Rock Road, and St Francis Drive.

To introduce 3 hour Limited Waiting in the layby adjacent to the Milford Avenue Shops to prevent all day parking, and allow sufficient access for visitors to the local shops and businesses.

To introduce 2 hour Limited Waiting except permit holders in Boyd Close to remove inconsiderate parking by visitors to the local shops, this causes difficulties for the high proportion of elderly residents who have very restricted space available to park near to their property.

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.
