2021 consultation

Marlowes, Hemel Hempstead

We worked in partnership with ADL Traffic and Highways Engineering Ltd to consult residents and business on the introduction of parking restrictions. Residents, local businesses and bus drivers had voiced concerns regarding the safety of pedestrians and vehicles as a result of inappropriate parking on Marlowes, Hemel Hempstead.

We therefore conducted a review of the current parking arrangements on Marlowes, north of its junction with Midland Road. As part of this review, a site assessment was carried out by officers in September 2021 and following this a design was produced outlining the proposed changes on the section of road under investigation.

The proposals

The proposed alterations to the existing parking arrangements on Marlowes are shown in Appendix A in the Proposal Plan (below) and outlined as:

  • Additional No Waiting at Any Time and No Loading At Any Time (Double Yellow Line with Double Kerb Blip) restrictions on Marlowes close to its junction with B487
  • Conversion of existing parking bays to Pay to Park bays (Monday to Saturday, 8am to 6pm, one hour no return within one hour). Charges are detailed in the table shown in Appendix B Residents' Consultation Letter (below)
  • Provision of Disabled Parking Bays (Monday to Sunday, 8am to 8pm, three hours no return within two hours)
  • Removal of small sections of existing waiting restrictions.

Residents and businesses affected by the proposals were consulted over a four-week period from 15 October 2021 to 12 November 2021. A letter and plan were posted directly, which explained the proposals and the reasoning behind them. Consultees were able to respond via email or post.
