 it's pricey as well unless you are travelling on Shrove Tuesday at 03:15 dressed as a Morris Dancer and have purchased an Intercontinental City Saver Student OAP Great Western Virgin photocard and are carrying a qualifying vole, and do not plan to return before the goat entrails indicate it would be favourable to do so. Engineering works permitting.

 
I  got one of those tickets once but they wouldn't let me on the bus as I didn't know the correct secret handshake, oh and I forgot my tamborine.

 :2funny:

Although I think you're describing rail travel, which can be very expensive for some journeys unless you want to negotiate the labyrinth of fare and booking options.

Bus travel is much simpler - 11 quid and you get a travelcard which lets you roam all round Swindon for free for the next seven days. Or £2.80 for one day. And you don't need to worry about finding a parking space either.

I might just get a bike.

Good move  O0

Average car length according to Highway Code is 4m, this is probably the measurement for french cars. If converted into feet it can be applied to English cars.

That said I have no idea when it was last reviewed, and given the amount of city cars and shorty little hatchbacks it may even be a bit generous.

I reckon if your car fits you entirely inside the boundary of your property you should be able to to do it. I miss the old Ford Cortina up on milk crates, which may in fact be what they are trying to avoid come to think of it.

The council officers reason behind the length limit was that once parking permission was granted you had to allow for people who bring home a works vehicle or who have a larger vehicle such as a camper van.

It was in response to this reasoning that I made what I thought was a sensible suggestion that common sense should prevail in these matters and it would be much easier to simply make the rule “Vehicles must be parked totally within the confines of the property and must not in any part extend onto public footpaths or the highway.”

Hello Pandora,

I sent an e-mail to Peter Greenhalgh containing the following comments,

"I was out and about today in Whitbourn Avenue, the biggest problem that people ask me to look at was parking.
 
Since the re-developement of Cavendish Square the amount of parking spaces have been drasticly reduced for the residents of Whitbourn Avenue, they cannot park on the road outside their property because of double yellow lines, so they all resort to parking on the grass verges.
 
The mess that this creates can be seen in the photo's.  What they are asking for is a dropped kerb and off road parking.  There is plenty of land available as you can see from the photo, so could I ask that you get someone from highways to look at the problem and come up with a solution.
"

I am also a member of the Squares Regeneration Board, it is this committee that is overseeing the planning and Regeneration of Cavendish Square. 

Over the past 3 years I have constantly raised the subject of parking in and around the developement and did so again at last weeks meeting.  There has been no input what so ever from local councillors during this time and I think it is a bit rich for them to start campaigning at this very late stage in the developement.  If they had bothered to come along to the board meetings they could have had an impact at the planning stage, but they didnt.

I will continue to ask for more consideration be given to parking in Whitbourn Avenue as I feel the impact of the regeneration is more widespread than anticipated.

Hi Peter
Thank you for sharing that. O0

The parking problem is wide spread and with Swindon's ever growing population, hence more families with cars etc, then the
problem will only escalate.

I do think that there needs to be a whole new re-think/ review regarding these issues now.
I know that the guidelines for curtilage parking was reviewed and reduced from the 5.2m requirements to 4.8m in Dec 2005 Re: the answer I got
to my question to the lead cabinet member for that area.

However, we are now in 2008 and as I have mentioned in previous posts, the problems will only get worse if left without being thoroughly reviewed and solutions being put in place to reduce the problems. I say reduce because parking will always be an ongoing issue and will never be totally resolved.

Hi

Sorry, but I had to bring up the parking issues again.
Yesterday my street was choc o block with parked cars on either side of the road.
Those of us who are fortunate to have driveways were lucky to be able to get on and off
our own driveways.

It worries me how the situation is getting quite bad, and the impact that it could have
on emergency vehicles trying to get through e.g. Fire engines and ambulances, should the need arise.

Now as Cllr Mallinson says, the parking issues are not unique to Penhill alone.
So therefore, should this not be a wake up call to the powers that be at SBC to review curtilage parking, and the possibility
of turing already churned up grassed mud areas into propper parking bays. At least then people will be able to park legally
and it would certainly reduce the number of vehicles parked on either side of narrow roads, thus making the roads easily accessible to
emergency vehicles should the need arise, as well as the refuse collectors.

Well as I mentioned in previous posts, Dec 2005 was the last review there was re: reducing the depth from 5.2m to 4.8m re: curtilage parking.
As I also mentioned, we are now in March  2008 and yes the problem does need to be reviewed again and yes a review of the situation is becoming
long overdue.

The promblem isn't going to go away - And neither am I !!!

So Parking problems in Penhill, parking problems in the Parks area.

Does anyone else in other areas of Swindon have the same or similar issues with parking ???????
If so, please can you list your area, to see how big this issue is becoming, in hope of the situation being reviewed.

                                                 Thank you  O0

Pandorra,

Not sure if you've seen this, but it all sounds rather similar even if the cause if different and the solution may vary.

http://www.talkswindon.org/index.php?topic=2970.msg16169#msg16169

Also on the Adver pages, it looks like Annie the Saviour is getting involved with the problems, so all is well with the world    >:D

I have been attempting to get this issue resolved for some years now.
May I clarify that ''Planning permission'' is needed if the vehicle crossing will be on a clasified road meaning the vehicle needs to have room to turn round and not reverse onto the Highway.
''Highway consent''' is needed on other roads to ensure the crossing is built to a proper standard having regard to safety and approved contractors have to be used.
The rule used to be the crossing length was a MAXIMUM of 3 metres that was allowed.
It took a working party chaired by David Wren nearly two years , as they looked at a lot of issues,to say this was too short and could be increased (I think) to 10 metres which was much more sensible.
I have been in touch with the Department for Transport who tell me there are no guidelines on the length of a parking space in someones garden.
It is purely a local issue
As Andy says common sense should prevail and if the vehicle overhangs the footpath a ticket should be issued by the parking attendants.
Unfortunatley this power is not available to us at the moment but I understand it will be if Peter Greenalgh agrees under delegated powers.
This is to be discussed at next wednesdays Cabinet.
I understand it will also be possible,if the power is adopted, to ticket someones car who has parked in their front garden without a proper Crossover.
We all moan about the verges being churned up but at the moment I am advised nothing can be done where there are no yellow lines.
I persuaded the Housing Department to put £100 K each year to provide curtalidge parking for tenants and they pay extra on the rent.
I hoped that as the Council were doing this work for tenants owner occupiers in the area could come on board, at their own cost, and have them put in at the same time thereby getting economies of scale.
I have a meeting a week on Tuesday with Highways officers who I hope will finaly bring this long outstanding issue to an end.
I am amazed at how something so simple has become so complicated.
While I was in Australia visiting my wife's son,and not on a jollie, I took a photo of a dropped kerb 'Aussie' style.
Much simpler and cheaper.
Highways officers were impressed with it but it was not proceeded with 'as Government guidelines' prevent us doing anything different I was told by officials.
As I felt this was a silly answer I took the matter to Michael Willls MP and folowing receipt of a letter I was able to talk to an official at the DofT
and received this advice to look at the link below.
I hope you find it intersting and would welcome views.


www.dft.gov.uk/pgr/sustainable/manforstreets/
and download the 5Mb pdf.  The detail you should look at is Figure 6.12 on page 70.  However, I would reiterate the fact that there is no compulsion to use this detail.  A local authority could vary the step at the kerb and the slope as it sees fit.  It is a local issue

Be the bloody first time if it does.
Sometimes I think you have to march right in and demand your rights, even if you don’t know what your rights are, or who the person is you’re talking to. Then, on the way out, slam the door.

Too many thinkers, too much process.

My garden, my car fits, I will pay £100 per dropped kerbstone. I will provide hardstanding. If I change my car, and it does not fit, therefore I cannot, nor am I permitted, to park in my garden.

There's a workable policy for you, no committees required and nobody making burbling noises ander the auspices of 'adding value'.

Just an update on the Parking Problems in Penhill:

Cllr Glaholm asked if I could attend a meeting on Wednesday of this week at Premier House SBC re: the parking issues in Penhill etc.
Unfortunately I was unable to attend so I emailed Cllr Glaholm a letter to take with him on my behalf.

Anyway to cut a long story short, I think the outcome of the meeting was constructive and I recieved the following email which was forwarded to me today:

'David following your meeting with Gwillam Lloyd and myself this morning, I write to confirm that we are recommending to Environment and Leisure Overview Committee on 20th March that Residents Parking Advisory Group be asked to look at the suitability of legislation available to the Borough Council in prevention of verge and footway parking and report back to the Cabinet Member Highways, Transport and Strategic Planning. In respect of this I will also ask that, if approved, and in the interests of an inclusive approach, this consider the potential for residents to park off the carriageway and the criteria for doing so.
 
At our meeting with Gwillam we also agreed to trial an experimental vehicle crossing at a mutually agreeable location. The trial to adapt the present SBC standards to reflect current best practice outlined in the "Manual for streets". In doing so we we also agreed that the tenant or owner of the property served by the experimental crossing will need to submit a vehicle crossing application and agree to fund the works.'
 
Geof


By reading this, if all goes well with the 'experimental vehicle crossing' then this could be a huge step in setting a precedence for other vehicle crossings in other areas.
So its fingers crossed and well done Cllr Glaholm and everyone who was and still is involved in getting this issue resolved.





This was how Penhill Drive looked in the 1960's,  It certainly isnt like that now with the amount of cars/traffic in Penhill.
Unfortunately we cannot turn back the hands of time, but we can find the solutions and put measures in place to resolve the parking issues we do have.
Its all about working together, a bit of give and take on both sides of the fence, and the willingness to listen and try various approaches untill we get it right.
