We are reviewing all waiting and loading restrictions in Newtown. A consultation period has been agreed to establish views on the waiting and loading restrictions concerned.
|Scheme||Newtown Town - Review of No Waiting / Loading at anytime parking restrictions|
|Location||Various Newtown Town|
|Description||These waiting/loading restrictions are proposed to maintain safety, also to prevent parking on the footway and obstructing pedestrians.|
POWYS COUNTY COUNCIL
(Various Streets Newtown)(Prohibition and Restriction of Waiting and Loading and Parking Places)(Limited Waiting Permit Holders Exempt) Order 2015
Following the introduction of Civil Parking Enforcement by Powys County Council, a number of anomalies, deficiencies and ongoing problems associated within the existing on street parking and loading restrictions have been identified.
There has also been a request to pilot a Residents Parking Scheme in a number of areas within the town.
Consequently, a review of all the on street waiting and loading restrictions within Newtown and an initial consultation with affected residents within the proposed residents parking zones has been carried out.
A number of modifications are now proposed to maximise and rationalise the available on street parking areas; eliminate parking and loading within areas where the free flow of vehicles and safe pedestrian movements would otherwise be compromised by inconsiderate or nuisance parking; create dedicated loading areas within the town centre for goods vehicles; and create shared residents parking bays within two zones to allow residents to park within certain bays without being bound be timed parking restrictions when displaying a relevant permit.

The modified plans showing the approved waiting restrictions outside these premises can be viewed on the PDF's below.
All other proposed waiting and loading restrictions within the town were approved to be implemented as proposed under the public consultation phase.
