Message from Knowsley Council - Highways
Over a prolonged period, concerns have been raised with the Council regarding non-residential parking on Trispen Close, Bodmin Way, Crantock Close, Oak Grange and Hollybank Grange.
This is a direct result of parents and guardians, parking throughout the residential area to drop off and pick up pupils of Plantation County Primary School.
This parking has been reported to cause obstruction and access difficulties, as well as having a negative impact on road safety and residential amenity. More recently, this has also resulted in anti-social behaviour, including littering, noise, and physical violence.
At locations where parking is causing problems, the Council will consider implementing remedial measures. In this case, having received support from most residents, that Council has introduced a permit holders only parking area, which includes Trispen Close, Bodmin Way, Crantock Close, Oak Grange and Hollybank Grange.
This scheme has been introduced on trial basis via an Experimental Traffic Regulation Order which will become operative from Friday 15 September 2023 for a maximum period of 18 months. The scheme will operate Monday to Friday, from 8.00am – 9:30am and 2:30pm – 4.00pm. It is anticipated that these operative hours will prevent non-residential parking during school term times, therefore minimising the detrimental impact on residents.
During the first six months of the Experimental Traffic Order, we will actively invite the local community to provide comments and feedback to us. This will give the Council the opportunity to consider your views and in doing so, help us decide whether to make changes to the scheme, make the scheme permanent or withdraw the scheme, and revert back to the existing situation.
