Proposed changes to Fordingbridge car park - consultation

We are modernising the Roundhills car park in Fordingbridge and would like to know what you think of our plans. Please read about the suggested improvements and look at the plan, and then give us your comments (by 9 October 2018)

The changes we are suggesting include a different layout that includes an improved traffic flow, better pedestrian access, and enhanced planting.

teal bullet  Some speed ramps are proposed to control traffic speeds within the car park. 

teal bullet Under these plans, the numbers of overall spaces would remain largely unchanged (and at standard width) and include short and long stay spaces, parking for people with disabilities, and new parent and child spaces and electric car charging spaces.  Motorcycle parking (not yet fully detailed on plan) will be included as well as a designated taxi drop off/pick up area.    

teal bullet We are proposing to improve the drainage to address surface water issues that occur at certain times of the year.  

teal bullet Car parking ticket prices would not change as a result of these improvements and would remain consistent with car parking charges across the District.

teal bullet The three ticket machines, as there are now, will remain. 

teal bullet Vehicle access continues to be from The Bartons and Shaftesbury Street but the proposals suggest that the Round Hill access is closed to vehicles to improve pedestrian safety.    All other pedestrian access points are proposed to remain the same.

teal bullet The proposal includes relocating the recycle banks to the car park on the A338 slip road) and the retaining of a coach parking bay (these changes have been suggested following consultation with the town council and local business)
