Consultation reminder for Residents’ Parking Zones in Bath

People living in and around seven proposed residents’ parking zones – to help create healthier and safer streets linked to Liveable Neighbourhoods plans – are being reminded to have their say by June 2 at 5pm.

The consultation, which has included a series of face-to-face events, ends next week on Thursday June 2 at 5pm.

The proposed schemes aim to tackle commuter parking and reduce vehicle intrusion into largely residential neighbourhoods, while also improving air quality and the environment for the local community.

People living in and around the zones, as well as anyone regularly travelling into them, can take part in an online survey at  

Those without access to the internet can obtain further information and a printed questionnaire by calling Council Connect on 01225 39 40 41. 

The proposed zones are:

  • Chelsea Rd, Foxcombe Rd Area  
  • Lyme Gardens, Charmouth Rd Area  
  • Sion Hill, Summerhill Road Area
  • Audley Grove, Edward Street, St Michaels Area
  • Walcot, Snow Hill, Claremont Rd Area  
  • Entry Hill Area  
  • Beacon Hill Area  

Following the consultation, the council will review the responses received and decide whether to proceed to the next stage, which is advertising the Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) for further comment or objections.

I want to thank everyone who has taken part so far either by submitting their views online or attending the events we have been holding. It is important that we get a range of views to balance the needs of communities. We are getting close to the end of this consultation and if you haven’t taken part yet we are reminding you there is still time to have your say.

Councillor Manda Rigby, cabinet member for Transport

The residents’ parking zone proposals came out of several public consultations on the council’s Liveable Neighbourhoods programme, and how the council can help communities to create healthier, safer streets. These seven are in addition to a proposed RPZ scheme for Oldfield Park and Westmoreland.  More than 700 people have already shared their views in a consultation on this proposal, and the next step is the formal consultation on the Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) later this summer. 

Residents’ parking zones are just one of a range of interventions available to local communities looking to create Liveable Neighbourhoods as part of the council’s Journey to Net Zero ambitions.
