Councillors have recently considered proposed changes to waiting restrictions at locations across the town.
The restrictions on parking have been justified to prevent nuisance parking.
Adjustments to waiting restrictions were proposed by members of the public, councillors and the council’s highways department.
The changes have been approved at the council’s traffic management sub-committee meeting on Wednesday, September 13.
You can see what will happen in each location below:
Here, the council will implement 37 metres of ‘no waiting’ restrictions north of Northumberland Avenue’s junction with Long Barn Lane.
Cllr Andrew Hornsby-Smith (Labour, Church) called the council’s proposal to put double yellow lines on one side of the junction “an appropriate solution” to meet concerns about parking making it difficult to approach the roundabout for vehicles heading south.
The entrance to the service road in Coley Avenue at East Lodge will now change to no waiting at any time for a 21-metre stretch.
Almond Drive, a residential street in Caversham Park will have double yellow lines imposed at the end of the close.
No waiting at any time restrictions for Odiham Avenue in Caversham at its junction with Montpelier Drive will be imposed.
Cllr Stephen Goss (Conservative, Emmer Green) said: “I’ve had complaints from residents in the ward about cars parking on the cycle lanes and the footpath there so I very much support it.
The junction of Essex Street and Whitley Street will become no waiting at any time, with no loading between 8.15am to 9.15am and 4pm to 6.15pm.
In Pottery Road, Tilehurst, the council will restrict parking to no waiting at the entrance to Meadow Park Academy, and impose no waiting and no loading between 8am to 9.15am and 3pm to 4pm on weekdays.
The change was agreed upon by both Kentwood cllrs Labour’s Mark Keeping and Conservative Raj Singh.
Here, there will be no waiting restrictions for 10 metres at its junction with Brisbane Road.
Cllr Jacopo Lanzoni (Labour, Caversham), the vice chair of the committee, said that at least one neighbour asked for five-metre restrictions.
But council officer James Penman replied that a five-metre restriction would not be practicable.
The council will impose no waiting at any time restrictions for the whole of Shilling Close.
The changes come after the issue of inconsiderate parking was raised by neighbour Jack Ewins.
Foxhays Road is a looped residential street in Whitley. Parking restrictions on the right-hand side of the loop will be imposed.
St Agnes Way
The council wants to impose no waiting at any time restrictions at the junction of St Agnes Way and Lindisfarne Way at Kennet Island.
No waiting at any time restrictions will be imposed at the junction of Coalport Way and Pottery Road.
The council will impose no waiting at any time restrictions in the turning circle of Elan Close.
A five-metre stretch of Ashby Court at its junction of Whitley Wood Lane will have no waiting at any time restrictions imposed.
Upper Redlands Road
The council will remove a pay and display parking space outside Wantage Hall and make the space to no waiting at any time.
A parking space outside St Marks Church will change, with the size of the space being reduced by three metres and replace part of it with a ‘no waiting at any time’ restriction.
No waiting restrictions will be imposed at Somerstown Court.
Changes in Russell Street will see two parking spaces being reserved for doctors from 8am to 8pm, but outside of these hours, the spaces will be reserved for residential permit holders.
Where changes will not be made
Changes that would have removed unrestricted parking to no waiting at any time in Carsdale Close were scrapped.
Cllr Paul Gittings (Labour, Coley) said neither neighbours nor councillors wanted the change to go ahead.
