Consultation documentation

Watford Borough Council carried out an informal consultation between  11th October to 7th November 2021, within the below named roads, to understand whether residents supported proposals to join Zone NA Permit Parking Area.

  • Ashby Road
  • Brighton Road
  • Diamond Road
  • Gammons Lane 
  • Jubilee Road
  • Sussex Road

This followed residents complaints in relation to displaced parking from Zone NA. A parking beat survey was carried out in September 2021. 

Survey results suggest that although there is some evidence of parking migration, it is only low level and is not affecting parking availability in the area during daytime hours.

The other major conclusion from the survey data is that all the roads surveyed have occupancy levels exceeding 100% capacity during evening and night time hours. It also found that in Diamond Road, Jubilee Road and Gammons Lane occupancy levels exceeded 100% during daytime hours.
