Committee gives go-ahead to daytime parking ban in Southdownview Road

A PROPOSAL to introduce a daytime parking ban in Southdownview Road has been given the go-ahead by Worthing County Local Committee.

The Committee has also given the green light to proposals to:

·          Create more parking in Beaumont Road by removing a no longer required disabled bay.
·          Introduce No Waiting at Any Time restrictions at a number of Southdownview Road’s junctions and at two junctions along Dominion Way.

Committee Chairman Bob Smytherman said:

“For a number of years there have been complaints about parking in Southdownview Road causing congestion.

“This was made worse when work on the EDF Energy car park led to staff parking more extensively in the road. However, once this work was completed many staff chose to continue parking in the road close to their office.

“Correspondence between West Sussex Highways and EDF Energy in late 2009 resulted in agreement being reached that daytime parking restrictions would be introduced to encourage better use of its car park.

“We have agreed with residents that the parking ban in Southdownview Road will not apply to Bank Holidays. This is because there are no EDF employees using the site on such dates, which means there’s little need to prohibit parking.”

The two Dominion Way junctions where parking will be banned are at Sheridan Road and Congreve Road.
