Residents say they want a ResPark scheme on Albemarle Road according to a report being considered by the York Council next week. The move comes in the wake of a move to open up a Multi User Games Area (MUGA) for public use at the nearby Millthorpe School.
The proposal includes the extension of parking restrictions in the area. As we reported some weeks ago, there is already an issue with the narrow highway being obstructed as a result of parking. It is thought that ResPark would reduce the pressures on the street.
Officials say that they cannot complete the ResPark processes before the MUGA opens in the summer bringing the prospect of increased disruption for at least a limited period of time.
Bishopthorpe Road parking restrictions
The meeting will also hear about representations made regarding the installation of a pedestrian refuge in the Bishopthorpe Road area.
The original proposals attracted a large number of objections.
The plans include the creation of a “clearway” from the racecourse to Bishopthorpe Village.
