Residents and businesses on a Watford estate have had the chance to have their say on improving nearby on-street parking and pedestrian crossings.

People living in the Cassiobury Estate were invited to comment on the proposals to improve the on-street parking arrangements and pedestrian access to the shops in Langley Way.

The proposals have recommended a two hour parking restriction be introduced on weekdays between 10.30am and 2.30pm on all on-street parking spaces around the Langley Way and Cassiobury Drive roundabout.

In addition, pedestrian crossing points will be installed, as well as bus stop facilities and cycle parking.

Figures from the consultation event held at St Luke’s Church in Langley Way showed 68 per cent of respondents were in support for the proposals.

Hertfordshire County Council’s cabinet member for highways and transport, Councillor Stuart Pile said: "We were really encouraged by the level of interest shown at the consultation event - it was very well attended and busy all day.

"It is great to be working with Watford Borough Council on this project, which will help to improve pedestrian access to the shops and aid vehicle turnover, allowing residents to park outside the shops more easily."

Residents and businesses will be advised of the project start date once they have been confirmed.
