Last night at Cabinet the Sawyers Close Stakeholder Masterplan Document was approved.
I read through it when it was published last week and concerns over parking were a red flag for me and so I arranged a meeting earlier this week with the lead officers from Abri.
There were comments in the report concerned about reduced parking and I was advised by Abri that currently there are 216 parking bays & garages and 60% of residents have a car. The new provision will facilitate parking for 362 cars.
An obvious fear for local residents, if there was a lack of parking, would be Sawyers Close residents parking on Smith’s Lane and the surrounding streets.
The parking provision would appear adequate but I will be talking to local residents about potential options that should be considered.
I also made an innovative suggestion which they will be taking to their management meeting in April… I will advise if they choose to move forward with the idea.
