Issue Summary

Need for safe drop off zone outside of Nursery Lowden Avenue


Latest Update

03/02/2018 01:37:18 Referred to Chippenham Town Council for comment.

CATG Action / Recommendation


We run a nursery business in Lowden Avenue and over the last 12 years since taking over the business parked traffic in the area has increased significantly. This is predominantly due to commuters who use the areas around Lowden Avenue to park their cars before going off to work in town or catching a train. Having spoken to several of these people their reason is to avoid the parking fees at the various car parks around the town of Chippenham. Whilst we understand their reasons as a business in the area I wondered whether it would be possible or indeed feasible to suggest a drop off zone or single line outside the nursery to enable our parents to drop their children off safely and easily. Most of our parents walk to the nursery but for those who dont this would be of great benefit to them. It would also ensure the area outside our business was used for our customers. At the weekends and evenings residents in the surrounding area would be able to park there too so it would work for everyone.
