The traffic team at Hounslow Council has confirmed to a local resident that there is a plan to introduce double yellow lines along the section of Windmill Road to the north of the A4 Great West Road.

The changes are part of a broader project of changes of the road layout in the area which is due to take place next month.

Parking on single yellow lines is allowed when nearby parking restrictions do not apply and residents have habitually taken advantage of the opportunity to park on single yellows in the area. The affected section of Windmill Road is in Controlled Zone BN which has restrictions from 10am-11am and 3pm to 4pm Monday to Friday and Controlled Zone BSTN which has restrictions from 9.30am to 5.30pm Monday to Friday. This means that vehicles can currently be parked on the single yellow lines all day at the weekend and during the evening every day.

Double yellow lines would mean an ‘At Any Time’ restriction which would mean that anyone parked on them would be liable to a fine even when other restrictions were operating.

It is understood that the changes are prompted by the planned development of Churchill House and concerns about increased parking on Windmill Road causing an obstruction.

The recently completed Reynard Mills development includes 200 parking spaces for 195 homes but Brentford Voice believe there is considerable (anecdotal) evidence that residents of, and visitors to, Reynard Mills habitually use the local streets for parking.

Local residents have asked the borough’s traffic team to reconsider the plan as it is believed it will lead to significant difficulties in parking for residents in the area particularly in the evening and at weekends.
