Taylor's Lane - meeting with residents

Yesterday, along with an officer from the City Council's City Development Department, I met with residents in Taylor's Lane regarding their concerns about access in the street, where difficulties causing by some parked cars resulted in the road being physically blocked recently.

There's a balance to be struck in a street like Taylor's Lane between ensuring clear access and not losing valuable parking spaces in an area of high parking demand. I am pleased to say that we had a very constructive meeting and a minor revision to the waiting restrictions on the west side, south of the junction with Patrick Place will be proposed and - in due course - will be subject to public consultation.
