Hello Parking Team, We have recently posted an issue on the Fix My Street Website. And just wanted to follow up with you to reiterate the issues we have been experiencing. 39a Shaftesbury avenue is situated approximately 200 meters from the Albany Centre at the end of Shaftesbury Avenue, Montpelier, Bristol. From the Albany centre if you were to walk up Shaftesbury Avenue toward Herbert’s Bakery, on the lefthand side you will see a break in the terrace housing. Here set back is 39a Shaftesbury Avenue accessed by a cobbled lane, approximately 25 meters in length. The entrance to this lane was originally marked with double yellow lines as you can see clearly in the attached image. Since mayor water works in the area some years ago, which involved extensive ground works these double yellow lines were not reinstated. Resident Parking Scheme Bays are situated along the length of Shaftesbury Avenue, but fall short of the access lane of 39a for safety reasons, and because the original double yellow lines would deter irresponsible parking. We would like to see the reinstatement of these double yellow lines as soon as possible. As you can see from the attached images, because of even more car congestion on our roads, people are parking irresponsibly outside of the designated parking bays, even within the time duration in which the Parking Scheme regulations are enforced. Thus creating difficulties in vehicle access to 39a Shaftesbury Avenue, and on some occasions access is made impossible by irresponsible parking. The no parking space created by the double yellow lines would also provide for safe passage for vehicles to give way to on coming vehicles and so relieve traffic congestion along the Avenue. It would be good to hear back from someone with regard to this matter Any help and advice to get these double yellow lines reinstated would be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards, Paul Whitelock

  • This typifies the sort of careless and selfish parking which is going unpunished around the lane entrance. And is why we are requesting the reinstatement of double yellow lines in this area. As the second picture shows.

  • Thank-you for confirming you have engaged with this parking issue, and have referred this case to the appropriate office/Team. I do hope that I do receive correspondence/Update with regard to this matter before a prefixed time elapsed "Case Closed" generic update incuses. I have received similar assurances with regard to this issue, with the appropriate team looking into this for me, only to told (By a Bot I'm hoping) that the case is closed before receiving any form of response. I then have then had to re issue my Complaint, which I'm assuming takes me back to square one!
