5. Sommerville Road, Eton - Verge Protection Scheme - Results

In response to concerns raised by residents about parked vehicles damaging verges and causing obstructions, the borough is consulting on the construction of new parking bays in Sommerville Road, Eton.

Part of the grass verges will be removed and replaced with block paving to allow additional off-street parking. Parking on Sommerville Road will then be restricted to allow easy access for residents and emergency vehicles. Street lamps will be replaced as part of the scheme.

The borough would welcome the views of residents on the following options:

  • Option 1: Installation of the new parking areas as shown on the drawing.
  • Option 2: No measures to be implemented.

To view a plan showing the proposals, please see the Sommerville Road Verge Protection Scheme plan.

The consultation closed on Friday 30 November 2018.

Results:

Option 1 - 33% (6 responses)

Option 2 - 67% (12 responses)

No definitive consensus was achieved, with regards to the type of scheme required, and this will now be revisited by council officers.
