Have your say on the management of Shalford Common

An online survey is now available to Shalford residents to help create a plan that will address issues including car parking on the common and parking on access tracks.

We are looking at options for seven areas around Shalford Common and we want to hear your views on how best to manage access and parking in each area. 

These areas include:

  • Huber's Garage and Mitchell's Row
  • Kings Road shop front
  • Pound Place
  • Parrot Pub car park
  • Recycling car park and Dagley Lane access road
  • Dagley Lane/Juniper Terraces
  • Approaches to Ashley Gardens and Christmas Hill

In addition to these seven areas, we will be considering providing a new area of registered Common Land in exchange for the loss of any current area.

If residents choose an option in the survey that will need third party consent, then new byelaws will need to be introduced which will replace the existing ones. Byelaws are new rules made by a local authority or corporation that regulate themselves. The new byelaws will need a statutory consultation and will mean there will be a further consultation.

Cllr James Steel, Lead Councillor for Environment, says: "Shalford Common has had ongoing issues with parking on the common and on access tracks. We have listened to residents' complaints and now we are going to create an action plan on how best to manage it. We want to hear residents' views on how we can improve the management of the common and will consider all feedback given to us to help make the best decision possible."

The consultation ends on 31 October 2020. All responses are anonymous. If you would like to have your say, please go to our Shalford Common Consultation page.

More information on these sites can be found in the Shalford Green parking locations and restrictions document.
