Parking restrictions around Darenth Village Park in bid to stop inconsiderate Darent Valley Hospital parkers

11 June 2014

Parking restrictions around Darenth Village Park are likely to go ahead in a bid to stop inconsiderate hospital parkers.

Since permit parking was introduced in Powell Avenue, motorists have begun using other roads, which in turn has led to residents writing to Dartford council to complain.

The plan is for double yellow lines on the corners of Foord Close, Latham Close, Moore Close, Redding Close, St Margarets Close and The Green.

Parking on those streets will be for permit holders only, with restrictions between 9.30am and 4pm. Permits will cost £50 a year.

Darenth Park Avenue will have no-waiting signs between 9.30am and 4pm from Monday and Friday. The council held an online survey and of the 312 homes in Darenth Village Park, 67% responded and 87% of those supported the proposals.

There are 443 public spaces on the Darent Valley Hospital site, including 59 for disabled users. There has been a steady increase in the numbers using the hospital since it opened in 2000.
