A council is seeking public opinion on proposals to introduce new parking permit schemes.

Three Rivers District Council has outlined plans for controlled parking zones in the west of Rickmansworth and Mill End and in High Elms Lane, Garston.

The Rickmansworth West area-wide review could see permit bays introduced alongside pay-and-display.

Three Rivers says a previous consultation in the area indicated parking was a problem.

The streets included in the proposal are Berry Lane, Church Lane, Clarkfield, Dellwood, Elm Way, Field Way, Highfield Way, Mead Place, Mount View, Park Way, Shepherds Way, St Peters Close, The Close, The Highlands, Uxbridge Road, West Way.

Restrictions on parking would promote easier, safer parking for residents, local employees, shoppers and visitors, the council says.

Elsewhere, the council is proposing a new scheme in High Elms Lane, home to Parmiter's School, St Michael's Catholic High School, and West Herts Crematorium, where "competing demands for parking and access to the large schools and other facilities have led to complex parking and loading problems".

The proposal is intended to keep the road clear of parked vehicles and make drop-offs "easier and safer".

There are currently 44 "safe" parking bays in High Elms Lane.

New proposals include 11 all-day bays, 74 bays limited to 20 minutes outside the hours of 9am-3pm, with short-stay parking of 90 minutes between 9am-3pm.

Other consultations include creating a new controlled parking zone on some streets in Croxley Green, proposals for parking permits for employees working in selected streets in Rickmansworth and Chorleywood, and a proposed parking scheme in Parsonage Close in Abbots Langley.
