60 roads in York to get double yellow line or other parking restrictions
New parking restrictions are expected to be introduced on more than 60 roads around York.
Double yellow lines will be painted on dozens of residential streets and some main roads, as part of new plans across the city.
The limits and times of some ResPark areas will also change, and new markings will be painted at some bus stops in Beckfield lane and Danebury Drive in Acomb, to help keep spaces free for buses.
The unlimited parking area of Scarcroft Road, one of the unlimited free parking lots closest to the city center, will also be removed.
Signs have been placed on lampposts around town, informing local residents of proposed changes to their street.
The full list of affected streets can be found at the bottom of this article, and residents have until Friday, May 14 to send comments for or against specific proposals. All comments should be sent to [email protected]
A spokesperson for York City Council said the changes were all requested over the past year by York residents and councilors. The board reviews these requests once a year.
She said the vast majority of the changes were to introduce double yellow lines to improve visibility at intersections.
The spokesperson added: “The Scarcroft Road proposal is due to problems with coaches unloading and causing obstructions. It was therefore recommended that the bay be removed and replaced with a “No wait at any time” restriction to allow this to happen in a safe location. ”
The full list of affected streets is below. To see the specific proposals for your street, see the full council announcement here (PDF).
