Cumberland Council is inviting residents, businesses, and local road users to give their feedback regarding proposed changes to the Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) for Senhouse Street in Maryport.
Enabled by the Government’s Future High Street Fund, proposals aim to improve the environment through enhanced planting, seating and signage.
The proposal involves alterations to the layout of the parking bays on the north side of Senhouse Street, near the junction with Curzon Street.
The current diagonal bays are proposed to be realigned parallel to the footway, with the aim of simplifying parking and reducing the traffic congestion that presently spills onto Curzon Street.
Additionally, there are plans to introduce new parallel parking bays on the south side of Senhouse Street, near the Curzon Street junction, creating one additional parking spot while preserving the existing ones.
Furthermore, the proposal includes a reduction in the allowable time for parking in disc parking bays on Senhouse Street, reducing from one hour to 30 minutes. This adjustment is designed to encourage a faster turnover of vehicles accessing the parking spots on Senhouse Street, facilitating convenient shopping trips and other high street activities. Parking for longer durations will still be available at the Mill Street Disc Car Park, which remains free of charge.
To provide feedback on these proposals, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org or write to:
