Council plans for double yellow lines labelled a “blunt weapon”

20 January 2017

Local people in Llandaff North say they are worried about plans for double yellow lines on Pennard Place.

The recommendation has been made to Cardiff City Council following complaints that commuters were taking up all the parking spaces on the road.

Pennard Place is a small cul-de-sac with only 10 houses. However on the weekdays there are around 20 cars parked on the road, making it difficult for local residents to access their homes.

The increase in parking has also caused damage to the grass verges and blocks off the pavement during the day.

Steffan Webb, who is the Plaid Cymru candidate for Llandaff North in the upcoming elections said he had spoken to a number of residents who felt that they were not informed about the plans for double yellow lines.

He also said that the ongoing parking dilemma at University Hospital Wales could be the reason why commuters are seeking new parking alternatives.

Despite the recommendation for double yellow lines, Mr Webb expressed his concerns. He said  “I’m not convinced that they’ve considered resident only parking. Double yellow lines will affect the residents in the exact same way that it will affect staff at the hospital.”

In a statement, the Councillor for Llandaff North, Dilwar Ali said: “I can confirm that this is a proposal and if there are significant concerns raised by residents then these will be reviewed and the proposal may be modified or not proceed.”
