Hammond Way, Hampton Court Road, Howardian Close and Scholars Drive

​​​
We are consulting on a transport proposal in Hammond Way, Hampton Court Road, Howardian Close and Scholars Drive​.

Penylan Parking Options


As a result of safety concerns about the number of vehicles driving into Hammond Way, Hampton Court Road and other local streets to access Howardian Primary during the morning drop-off and afternoon pick up periods, we are looking at potential options to address these concerns. No decision has been made at this stage. 

This information briefly outlines the options which are being explored.


​Local parking restrictions

We are proposing to introduce additional parking restrictions to address the issues of inconsiderate parking and driving behaviour on Hammond Way, Hampton Court Road, Scholars Drive and Howardian Close. 

The parking restrictions would only apply at set times at the beginning and end of the school day, during term times.  

There is also an option for the parking restrictions to be combined with some areas of permit controlled parking.

This information briefly outlines the options which are being explored for each location.

School Street update​​​


Officers have investigated whether it would be feasible to introduce a ‘School Street’ (a timed access restriction for non-residents/permit holders enforced by CCTV cameras) on Hammond Way.

They have concluded that it would not be possible to create a School Street without introducing the same access restrictions on a number of other streets within the immediate area. The area covered by the restrictions would be significantly larger than any of the existing School Streets in Cardiff and the number of residents who would be affected would also much higher than at other locations.

This would make the scheme more difficult to operate than other School Street schemes. School Streets need to achieve a balance between ensuring that the restrictions are effective in reducing the number of vehicles accessing a street, whilst minimising potential impacts on residents. For these reasons, a School Street is not being recommended as an option for Hammond Way at this stage.

We know that some residents were concerned about the possibility of a School Street, because of the restrictions which are required as part of the scheme, for example, on deliveries and visitors. School Streets have been very successful in other locations across the city in response to safety concerns about the number of vehicles accessing schools. Many of the existing School Streets have been introduced on cul-de-sacs which are short sections of road with quite low numbers of residents.

In these locations, the restrictions are easier to manage and adapt to. For example, many deliveries are still possible where delivery drivers can park within a short distance of the School Street.

Parking restrictions​​


As we do not consider a School Street to be feasible at this stage, we are proposing instead to introduce additional parking restrictions to address the issues of inconsiderate parking and driving behaviour on Hammond Way. The parking restrictions would only apply at set times at the beginning and end of the school day, during term times.

Three options are outlined below and we are asking residents to give their views on these options.  

Parking Management and Enforcement​​


The Council cannot enforce against parking where no restrictions are in place. There are generally no parking restrictions on the cul de sacs adjoining Hammond Way which means that currently, the Council is not able to enforce against parking in these areas.

There are currently parking restrictions in a limited number of locations on Hammond Way (e.g. around the school and on some junctions) including double yellow lines with part time loading and unloading restrictions.

The Council’s Civil Enforcement Officers can, on foot or by using a camera car, enforce these restrictions and other parking restrictions including at zebra crossings, zigzag lines, ‘no waiting’ and yellow line parking. However, they do not have the powers to enforce against unsafe turning manoeuvres or other driving behaviour which we are aware causes concern. This is a matter for the police.

Civil Enforcement Officers may not be able to attend on a regular basis, because they are needed in many areas across the city, particularly around school times. Enforcement cameras are used outside some schools to enforce parking restrictions. However, the cameras can be only used where certain types of parking restrictions are in place.

Option One: Parking restrictions


Option One is for timed parking restrictions to be introduced on Hammond Way and at the heads of the cul-de-sacs adjoining Hammond Way. These are shown in red on the map. Camera enforcement will be used to monitor and enforce these restrictions. This means that enforcement would not rely on the availability of Enforcement Officers to attend in person, as some enforcement will be undertaken remotely. The restrictions would only apply before and after school times, during school term times.

The times would be subject to confirmation but would typically be from 8.30 – 9.15am and 2.30 – 3.30pm.

The no loading or waiting at specific times restriction would mean that no vehicles would be able to park or wait in this area (shown in Red on the map) during restricted times. Vehicles parking on the restrictions in these areas during restricted times could receive a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN).

The parking restrictions would not prevent vehicles accessing Hammond Way around school times, but limiting the parking available and increasing the parking restrictions is likely to result in fewer vehicles accessing the area, as enforcement can be more proactive.

Option Two: Parking restrictions plus a resident permit zone


Option Two would also introduce parking restrictions and would include a resident permit area for the cul-de-sacs joining Hammond Way which would not be covered by the proposed no loading or waiting at specific times parking restrictions.

These are shown in yellow on the map and would operate at the same times as the parking restrictions on Hammond Way. Hammond Way would not be included in the permit area. This would help to address any parking at school times which may be displaced into areas without parking restrictions.

No permits would be needed for parking off-street on driveways. Residents would only need a parking permit if they and/or their visitors were parking on-street within the area within the restricted times. This would provide residents with the benefit of restricting parking for non-permit holders at peak times.

Resident parking permits currently cost £7.50 a year for the first permit and £30 for the second.

Deliveries would not be affected by the permit area. Tradespeople would need a visitor permit or they can put a note in the windscreen of the vehicle stating the property number that they are working on if parking on any of the streets during times of operation.

Enforcement of the permit area would be carried out by Enforcement Officers. 


Option Three: Do nothing

No changes introduced, so situation remains the same.
