Foundry Loan – Waiting Restrictions

Many thanks for all the comments we have received in relation to Falkirk Council’s proposals for double yellow lines on Foundry Loan.

We have submitted the following response to Falkirk Council:

“Dear Sirs

THE FALKIRK COUNCIL (RESTRICTION ON WAITING AND PARKING PLACES) (FOUNDRY LOAN, LARBERT) (AMENDMENT NO.9) (TRO 14/036) ORDER 2014

We write in relation to the above Order which seeks to address the parking and safety issues on Foundry Loan.

The Community Council has received a considerable volume of representation from local residents on this. The majority of residents who have contacted us are in favour of the double yellow lines and welcome them, as does the Community Council.

There are a few observations that have been made by residents to us in relation to the Order. One of the main observations made by some residents is that the double yellow lines may force parking into the surrounding side streets/estates with the potential result that similar inconsiderate parking occurs. We are also aware of proposals for parking charges at the station which if implemented may also exacerbate the on-street parking situation. We have received comments over the requirement to increase capacity at the main Foundry Loan car park. Some suggestions have been made to the Community Council that a second floor of parking could be considered as a solution or that the under-utilised bus turning circle could be turned into additional parking.

In conclusion, however, we are in favour of the proposed waiting restrictions being put in place in the interests of road safety.

Should you have any queries in relation to this response, please let us know.

Yours faithfully Etc.”

Foundry Loan – Waiting Restrictions Proposals

Falkirk Council has now published its proposed order to prohibit waiting and parking at all times on Foundry Loan in Larbert. The proposals extend from the junction with Main Street to just past the junction with Torlea Place on Broomage Avenue. The proposals are for double yellow lines on both sides of Foundry Loan.

The reason for the Order is to control parking, prevent obstruction by parked vehicles thereby improving road safety, to facilitate access to properties, and to provide more appropriate restrictions to parking in the Larbert and Stenhousemuir area.

The Order is entitled: THE FALKIRK COUNCIL (RESTRICTION ON WAITING AND PARKING PLACES) (FOUNDRY LOAN, LARBERT) (AMENDMENT NO.9) (TRO 14/036) ORDER 2014

Full details may be inspected at Abbotsford House, David’s Loan, Falkirk and One-Stop Shop, Callendar Sq, Falkirk, Mon-Fri between 9.30am – 4.30pm, between 29/01/15 – 19/02/15 and by clicking here: Foundry Loan – TRO-14-036.

Please note that objectors to the Order, must state their grounds for objection in writing, to Falkirk Council by 19/02/15. Objections should be addressed to: Head of Roads and Design, Abbotsford House, David’s Loan, Falkirk, FK2 7YZ. Alternatively, objectors can e-mail objections to adteam3.ds@falkirk.gov.uk.

Should you have any comments you wish the Community Council to consider in relation to the proposed order, please post a comment here or contact us on lst-cc@virginmedia.com

Foundry Loan – Speed Cushions & Parking

For some time, we have been seeking a long-term solution with Falkirk Council to the concerns that have been raised by local residents in relation to the speed cushions and parking on Foundry Loan.

Falkirk Council has advised us that it is now their intention to retain the existing speed cushions. They also intend to pursue a traffic regulation order which will seek to put in place extensive double yellow line waiting restrictions to ensure large vehicles can straddle the cushions which they advise should minimise the disruption experienced in neighbouring residential properties.

The process of initiating the double yellow lines will be subject to a statutory legal consultation process with the local community. We will post more detailed information when this process commences.

If you have any comments on this in advance of the formal consultation period that you would like the Community Council to consider, please let us know by posting a comment here or e-mailing us at lst-cc@virginmedia.com
