The entrance to Chestnut Court (No 4 Guys Cliffe Ave) currently has no markings to prohibit parking in front of the drive used to access to the building.
During peak hours with heavy traffic, pedestrians and cyclists from the nearby school and tennis club, cars are found parked far too close to the edges of the drive access and queuing traffic blocks access.
This makes turning into Guys Cliffe Avenue from Chestnut Court dangerous due to poor visibility down the road caused by parked cars. This increases the likelihood of an incident (particularly with vulnerable road users like cyclists or pedestrians.
In addition, queuing cars also prevent residents from accessing the property and this causes further congestion.
1) New parking restriction markings should be painted to increase visibility when leaving Chestnut Court. This should be done in the area a few metres either side of the drive including the piece of road separating Chestnut Court from No 6.
2) Keep clear road markings should be painted on the road for Chestnut Court to enable residents to leave and access their properties freely. This would mirror the keep clear road markings used at the newer build Saxon Court (next to Chestnut Court).
Whilst I am not against on-street parking. It must be managed in a safe and considerate way for all road users and residents.
