Fresh fears over Welwyn parking restrictions
NEW plans to introduce parking restrictions into Welwyn village have been proposed.
Welwyn Hatfield Council wants to put double yellow lines in High Street, Church Street, Mill Lane, Lockleys Drive, School Lane and Hertford Road.
It also wants a residents’ parking scheme in Mimram Road, as well as double yellow lines.
A public consultation on the proposals closes on March 31. In a letter sent to affected residents and businesses, the council’s parking services team says it is working in partnership with Welwyn Parish Council “to improve parking in the Village as a whole [sic]”.
Last year, plans to introduce parking charges to High Street and Lockleys Drive car parks were defeated following an unprecedented backlash from businesses and residents. And it looks like the council will have another fight on their hands.

Welwyn resident Sandy Walkington said: “It comes across as spiteful, like the council feels it was rolled over with the car parking and is now doing parking restrictions for the sake of it.
“It’s parking restrictions gone mad. Welwyn isn’t WGC, St Albans or Herford.”
