New Parking Restrictions on Three Grantham Roads

  • The council is proposing to introduce new waiting restrictions and bus stop clear ways on Gonerby Road, Gonerby Hill Foot and Stephenson Avenue.

  • Three objections have been received from local residents.
  • The council said there is “alternative parking opportunity” on several nearby roads.
  • Blue badge holders can park on the restrictions for up to three hours.

Further Waiting Restrictions and Limited Waiting Bays in Pinchbeck

  • Councillors had previously considered the matter in May 2022.
  • They had deferred a decision while they waited to see if a change of business owner along the road would have an impact.
  • Officers will, however, tell councillors that the parking issues were “still evident”.
  • Although the objections from nearby residents still stand, officers say the new measures will control persistent long-term parking and ensure access to local businesses is maintained.

Reduction of the Speed Limit on Broadgate, in Sutton St Edmund

  • Councillors will also be asked to consider a reduction of the speed limit on Broadgate, in Sutton St Edmund, from 40mph to 30mph.
  • It follows a request from a local member and surveys at the site show mean speeds along the road at between 34-36mph.


  • The council is taking a number of steps to improve safety in the area.
