Consultation:

Western Road, Ivybridge – Parking relocation

This consultation is open until Sunday 3 March 2019. Please complete the feedback questionnaire available at the bottom of the page to have your say.

Background

Western Road, Ivybridge is part of a designated Air Quality Management Area (AQMA). Devon County Council is, therefore, working with South Hams District Council to develop a solution which improves the local air quality.

Our Ivybridge Transport Study and South Hams District Council’s Air Quality Action Plan identify that the existing on-street parking arrangements create a pinchpoint as the carriageway narrows, preventing a two-way flow of traffic. This results in the idling of engines waiting to pass and the gradual build-up of queues contribute to the poor air quality of the area.

Scheme

We are proposing the following measures:

  • The removal of parking spaces along Western Road.
  • The introduction of double-yellow lines along Western Road.
  • The demolition of the old fire station building.
  • The construction of a car park on the verge between Western Road and Wayside.
  • Some pavement widening on the northern side of Western Road.

In addition to the specific scheme options, feedback is also encouraged on the following issues throughout the duration of this public consultation:

  • Permit arrangements for the relocated parking.
  • Possible relocation of Rose Cottage bus stop (westbound).

Please follow the links below to find more detailed information about the different scheme layouts being considered:
