Today's EP has an editorial critical of the CPZ scheme, as it will remove parking for shoppers and commuters. Yes it will. This stretch of Horfield Road will join the scheme, and it will therefore be impossible for cars like the VW touran WP57OGR from popping in to the shops.
Given that Kingsdown is a conservation area, one hopes that the signage of the new no-parking areas will be marked out subtly, perhaps with some discreet yellow lines or something, maybe even add some railings to the pavement to show that pavement parking is no longer allowed.
What we don't know is what the impact on local business be if customers can longer park for free on the pavement outside their premises.
