Re: Parking on the pavements

I think the long grass is probably a fair description - this is the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Transport (Mr Robert Goodwill) in the debate on Friday: "As I explained at the outset, we share my hon. Friend’s concern for the safety and free movement of pedestrians. Improving access fo...

Re: Parking on the pavements

I think this is the relevant legislation re obstruction (Highways Act 1980): 137.— Penalty for wilful obstruction. (1) If a person, without lawful authority or excuse, in any way wilfully obstructs the free passage along a highway he is guilty of an offence and liable to a fine not exceeding [level ...

Parking on the pavements

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-34988833 Interesting article in BBC News about parking on the pavements. Personally I think it's pretty dangerous to block the whole of the pavement as is the case with lots of the parking in most of lower Bengeo. A few times at night recently I've seen people hav...

Re: Want to get my house valued, recommend me some agents, please,

We used Lanes, they were quite helpful (though possibly a bit overoptimistic with their initial valuations sometimes).

Zoopla does online estimations, though they can be a bit out if your house was last sold a long time ago.

Re: Port Hill pedestrian crossing

Ah yes, very helpful, thanks - 26 October till 20 November. So they'll be starting three days after the gas works finish according to that site. Nothing like consecutive roadworks to wind people up...

Re: Discontinuation of Hertford Stations Anytime Travelcards

Season tickets allow you to start or finish at any intermediate station: http://www.nationalrail.co.uk/times_fares/ticket_types/46571.aspx For normal tickets you can also start or finish at intermediate stations as long as the ticket is valid for the train you're on, unless the ticket seller makes i...

Re: 20 MPH zone West of Bengeo Street.

Presumably everyone who is in favour has responded to the consultation saying that in order to help support the proposals? I think it would be a really good idea and a helpful first step (as a previous poster already said) to somewhat rebalance the roads in a residential neighbourhood away from the ...

Re: Sainsbury's

Though at least the difficulties would be largely administrative rather than require many changes to the site. If they were being ambitious (which maybe they are for this town centre vision project) then I think this kind of thing would be good for the junction at old cross: http://www.sustrans.org....

Re: Sainsbury's

Re the queues on Saturdays and Sundays, can they not allow cars to exit (but not enter) through the car park onto port Hill? Then any traffic that would otherwise be turning right onto Cowbridge would be able to exit that way and reduce the cars using hartham lane.
