Bath Voice News: work soon to start on two residents’ parking zones this month

By Harry Mottram: Two more residents’ parking zones in Bath are set to begin operating from the end of July say the Council. The zones are in Oldfield Park and Westmoreland, and Walcot, Snow Hill and Claremont Road areas.

In a statement the Council said: “The aim of the zones is to tackle anti-social driving and commuter parking in residential streets and improve people’s health and local environment as part of Bath & North East Somerset Council’s Liveable Neighbourhoods programme. The zones also support wider council policies that aim to reduce vehicle emissions and congestion and ensure fair consideration and equitable street space is given to those that would prefer to walk, wheel, scoot or cycle short trips. This includes the council’s response to the climate and ecological emergencies in its Journey to Net Zero plan.”

 Works to install the zones will begin next week and will continue until the official launch date on 31 Jul. Residents can apply for their permits from 3 July. Letters with details about the zones and their installation are being posted to all residents in the zones. Details can be found on the council website here:
