Overflow parking from Waterwells Business Park is one of the unintended consequences of the new footpath from Davy Way through to Hunts Grove Drive near Shorn Brook. Several of the residents of Shorn Brook and Hunts Grove Drive expressed concerns about this increase in vehicles parking, especially on the sharp corner by the footpath. This was making it difficult / unsafe to drive around that corner.
HGRA’s Darren Morris decided to take on this topic and investigate. The largest employer in the new business park is Book Depository, owned by Amazon, and it seems that many of the workers parking are from there. Darren met with the management and had a very constructive meeting. This has now led to them issuing guidance to their employees – copy below.
What an excellent result and response. We’ll be keeping an eye on the parking situation, so any concerns just drop us a line.
