Thank you for reporting your concerns regarding parking associated with the new play facility in the Alver Valley.
Gosport Borough Council is discussing the issues with Hampshire County Council, as they are the highway authority and would be responsible for agreeing any remedial measures on the estate roads. In response to concerns about pedestrian crossing facilities to/from the park, HCC are arranging for SLOW road markings on both approaches on Cherque Way, as well as LOOK LEFT/LOOK RIGHT markings at all the refuge island crossing points around the roundabout.
Visitor numbers at the park were high at the opening weekend and will be monitored by GBC in the coming weeks, as these may reduce after a settling down period. HCC will monitor parking on the estate roads, but it should be noted that formal parking restrictions are unlikely to be considered in the short term. It would not be appropriate to merely displace parked vehicles elsewhere on the estate and this would likely prove unpopular with other residents.
Currently yellow lines are situated along Cherque Way, which makes it is an offence to park on the road or the adjoining verge. Parking on the highway is enforced by Hampshire Police and any offences should be reported to the Police on the 101 non-
