Downs parking restrictions

Westbury Park Community Association is concerned that parking restrictions on the Downs will cause knock-on impacts in the nearby streets of Westbury Park, and has been encouraging residents to comment on the proposal.

The consultation period ran until May 26th.

Bristol City Council has proceeded to the statutory Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) stage. 

Under the TRO proposals, parking will either be prohibited altogether on roads around the Downs or restricted to four hours.

The proposals will result in the loss of over 500 all day parking spaces.

The community association shighlights a failure to place the Downs parking proposals “into any coherent logical overall programme of traffic and parking management such as a park and ride scheme for north Bristol.”
