Issue Summary

Inconsiderate parking causing access issues Lordsmead


Latest Update

08/11/2017 07:09:00 Wiltshire Council receives many requests across the County for Waiting and Parking Restrictions. Due to the high level of enquiries, all requests are considered and reported on annual basis and prioritised against an assessment matrix. The process for dealing with Waiting Restrictions/Double Yellow Lines has recently changed; Chippenham Town Council is now working in partnership with Wiltshire Council to deal with the requests. Your Community will therefore be closed. New requests - with immediate effect, all new requests will be referred to Chippenham Town Council. Existing requests Chippenham Town Council require a new Waiting Restriction 1 (WR1) form completed. This is to comply with Data Protection Guidance and to ensure that all of the requests are still valid. Our records show that you have previously contacted us about Waiting Restrictions/Double Yellow Lines. If you wish to pursue your request, please complete the attached WR1 form and return to Chippenham Town Council: by e-mail - achard@chippenham.gov.uk or by post Chippenham Town Council, High Street Chippenham, Wiltshire, SN15 3ER A review of Waiting Restrictions/Double Yellow Lines requests for Chippenham is due to take place in 2018. The deadline for completed WR1 forms is 28th November 2017. In the absence of a completed WR1 Chippenham Town Council will assume that a request is withdrawn and no further action will be taken.

15/09/2017 21:13:07 Considered by Chippenham Town Council 3-Aug-17: The Town Council understands a WR1 form has been submitted for consideration under the Chippenham Parking Review. This matter will be considered by Chippenham Community Area Transport Group (CATG) 10-Oct-17

CATG Action / Recommendation

08/11/2017 07:09:00 Initial stage of Waiting Restriction process transferred to Chippenham Town Council. No further action for Chippenham Area Board. at this time.


The issue is workers from Bumpers farm parking outside residents homes on Lords mead. The majority of these parked cars belong to the Royal Mail. I was in two minds about writing this as the absolute last thing that we want is double yellows as this will affect not only us but our community who we full support which is the allotments and St Peters church. All residents expect cars to be parked at one time or another due to people attending their allotment a church service or school pick up time. I also understand that the workers on Bumpers need to be able to park to attend work and expect that they are now parking else where due to the traffic leaving Bumpers farm and the lack of parking. Surely though Bumpers farms should provide enough spaces

Who is Affected

Residents.When they park opposite driveways due to the narrow road it makes it very difficult to get off of your driveway. Im also extremely worried about the amount of school children who use the pavements to walk to school and with all the cars parked they are hidden. Also on occasions Ive been concerned that emergency services would find it hard to get through the and find a place to park.

What has been done so far

Polite notes left on drivers windscreens on several occasions. Contacted local Councillor.

What would resolve issue

I do not believe that any resident will want double yellows as it restrict all of us being able have visitors park for a short time. I believe that a parking restriction of no parking between 9am and 5pm would allow residents to use their own road. This parking restriction should only be in front of houses as the allotments and church should still be able to have full parking and there are no houses opposite them. As a suggestion the empty field opposite St Peters is only used by dog walkers and teenagers. Could that not be converted into a free car park for Bumpers It must be free though or we will still have the same issue.
