A number of streets in Farsley and Stanningley are set for parking restrictions following concerns over pedestrian safety.
Leeds City Council is to introduce no waiting “at any time” restrictions at a number of junctions where inconsiderate parking results in poor junction visibility and traffic congestion.
The streets are:
- High Street, Farsley
- Bryan Street, Farsley
- Glenholme Road, Farsley
- Farfield Rise/Farfield Avenue, Farsley
- Sunfield Place, Stanningley
Alongside those streets, three locations have also been identified where all day parking regularly takes place preventing residents from parking near or close to their homes
Permit parking will be introduced at:
- Charles Street, Farsley
- Coal Hill Lane, Farsley
- Sunfield, Stanningley
The Sunfield measures are aimed at tackling congestion particularly around Sun Field Medical Centre. Coal Hill Lane residents are experiencing problems with long stay on-street parking following the introduction of restrictions in the vicinity of a new gym in the area.
A council report revealing the changes states:
“A number of location in the Calverley and Farsley Ward regularly suffer from inconsiderate parking, resulting in poor junction visibility, congestion and/or obstruction to the public highway. “
The measures will cost the council £7,000. The improvements will be funded by section 106 money gathered by the council from developers from housing being built near Farsley Celtic Football Club and a residential development at Upper Carr Lane.
The Dispatch reported on similar proposals in other parts of Calverley and Farsley ward a year ago.
