Plans to introduce double-yellow lines on numerous short sections of residential roads in the Bakers Ground and Kings Drive area of Stoke Gifford (near Nuffield Health) have moved to the next stage with the publication of a statutory notice.

South Gloucestershire Council (SGC) says the purpose of the proposed scheme is to address “obstructive and inconsiderate” parking on residential roads.

The proposed scheme is to introduce double yellow lines to improve access and visibility on the roads that have been identified and to convert existing advisory white keep clear lines to double yellow lines.

The limited waiting time at two existing on-street bays in Simmonds View will be increased from 2 hours to 4 hours to allow motorists to park for longer whilst visiting local businesses.

Kitchen & Laundry Appliance Care.

Some existing double yellow lines that, for historical reasons, are not currently legally enforceable are also included in the traffic regulation order (TRO).

The full list of roads affected is:

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

The feedback report on a public consultation carried out in 2019 shows that 138 of 158 respondents expressed “support for the proposals as a whole”. As a result of the feedback, minor adjustments have been made to the original proposals for Kings Drive and Bakers Ground and some additional restrictions have been introduced in Castle Court, Kings Drive, Simmonds View and Bakers Ground.

Full details of the draft TRO, including associated plans, may be viewed on the SGC website at The documents may also be viewed (by appointment only) at Patchway One Stop Shop. Alternatively, contact the council on 01454 864673 so they can email or post them to you. The consultation period runs until 19th June 2021.

Any objections will be reported to SGC’s director of environment and community services for a decision on how to proceed.


The current proposals form ‘Phase 4A’ of a waiting restrictions review covering the whole of the Stoke Gifford ward. Two further phases, 4B & 4C are planned, covering other areas.
