WELWYN HATFIELD BOROUGH COUNCIL

STATEMENT OF REASONS FOR PROPOSING THE BOROUGH OF WELWYN HATFIELD (VARIOUS CAR PARKS) (OFF-STREET PARKING PLACES) ORDER 2017(AMENDMENT) ORDER 2018

Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council is proposing to amend parts of the existing off-street parking order for the Maynard Place and Sopers Road car park in Cuffley

The updated order will create a restriction in the existing pay and display parking bays in Maynard Place to prevent vehicles returning to the car park for 2 hours after the pay and display ticket has expired. An additional amendment will correct a text error in part of the order for administrative purposes only and will not change any existing restrictions.

Having considered the duty imposed by Section 122 Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, it appears to Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council that it is necessary and expedient to make the Order for the following reasons;

  • To relieve or prevent congestion of traffic
  • To provide suitable parking facilities

All the above restrictions have been subject to consultation with car park users, the Police, Hertfordshire County Council and local and County Councillors representing the area.
