Main pedestrian routes highlighted are shown as a purple dotted line. These routes are essential to provide a safe route to the schools and access to the bus stops on Firsway.
The bus stop locations are shown as a larger purple dot.
5. Firs way is a busy road and cars travel too fast. Newbury Avenue is the main access road to the estate and community centre, but it’s not well sign-posted..
Play areas and pocket parks are needed for children as well as seating areas across the estate. These are shown as a red star.
Yellow lines are needed to deter on street parking.
Designated parking for flats and houses would lead to better organisation.
Wildflower verges would brighten pedestrian routes.
6. Some areas are liable to flooding.
7. People park around Hurst Avenue and Catterick Avenue during drop off and pick up, causing traffic problems.
8. Some car parking areas are under used and look awful. Could the spaces be made better use of?
9. The community garden is overgrown and needs maintenance. The allotments are well-cared for.
10. Newer houses on Lingfield Avenue don’t have dedicated car parking which causes congestion on the roads. There is also a lack of bin storage.
11.There are a number of trees around the estate that need maintenance or to be removed as they are too big, are dangerous, block street lighting or daylight to windows.
12. You said people use this link for going to school, but it is not well used as a play space as there is a lack of surveillance from the surrounding houses.
13. A local school has suggested a Flower Maze be designed for this space
14. Some homes don’t have boundary fencing, which means people can walk right up to their windows.
1. Clearly marked car park areas and resurfacing existing parking
2. More benches and better outdoor play facilities
3. More family housing and older people’s accommodation
