Cliff Villas is a residential road linking Cliff Road and Camden Park Road.
The school’s main entrance and the nursery entrance are on the east side of Cliff Villas. The footway is already widened outside and opposite the main entrance. But it is narrow between the main entrance and the nursery entrance.
The consultation proposes the following measures:
- Make Cliff Villas one way from Camden Park Road to Cliff Road but allow cyclists to travel along it in both directions.
- Widen the footway between the main entrance and the nursery entrance to the school on Cliff Villas – resulting in the loss of 7 parking spaces.
- A parking occupancy survey was undertaken and the results showed that less than 70% of the parking capacity is being used. Therefore, only one parking space of the seven spaces lost in proposal 2 will be relocated. The double yellow lines located near the main entrance to the school will be converted into one parking space – gain of 1 parking space.
- Shorten the widened footway opposite the main entrance to the school to provide secure cycle parking. Install secure cycle parking (Bikehangar – Cyclehoop or Asgard).
Making the road one-way for motors is a basic necessary preparation in case a Healthy School Street is to be implemented.
Good to do parking occupancy survey and take out six parking spaces
The proposed wider footway on the south side will provide extra space for parents and children walking between the two entrances and waiting.
