Plans to introduce double-yellow lines on numerous short sections of residential roads in the Bakers Ground and Kings Drive area of Stoke Gifford were the subject of a public consultation during August.

South Gloucestershire Council (SGC) says the purpose of the proposed scheme is to address “obstructive and inconsiderate” parking on eleven specified roads, namely:

  • Adelante Close
  • Bakers Ground
  • County Way
  • Halls Garden
  • Kings Drive
  • Manor Place
  • Newbrick Road
  • Riviera Way
  • Simmonds View
  • Star Avenue
  • Voyager Close

Comments left on the Stoke Gifford Journal’s Facebook page (see below) suggest that much of the inconsiderate parking is caused by users of the nearby Bristol Parkway Station who are reluctant to pay to park at the station or in the council-run ‘park & ride’ car park on Hunts Ground Road.

The Journal has also heard that bus passengers who catch the M1 MetroBus and T1 services from the stop at Great Stoke Way may also be contributing to the parking issues.

The consultation, which finished on 30th August, is designated as being ‘phase 4A’ of an area-wide waiting restriction review (covering the whole Stoke Gifford district ward) that began back in 2011.

Residents of Stoke Gifford may have noticed some new signs being placed around the car park of the local Co-operative store over the last few days.

The store, located on North Road, has implemented new parking restrictions which were put into place as of Monday 14th January.

A spokesperson for Southern Co-op said:

“From 14th January, the car park connected to our store in North Road, Stoke Gifford will be limited to two hours of parking. This is to deter all-day parking. The car park will remain free to use.”

Cameras have been set up to monitor the parking and if the two-hour maximum stay is breached, you are at risk of receiving a £100 parking charge notice (PCN).
