Car park and highways surveys at Common Edge Road

A series of surveys to monitor car park use at the Common Edge Community Sports Village will start next weekend.

The Common Edge Community Sports Village officially opened in June. As a condition of building the new sports village, a new 194 space car park was created to ensure that traffic visiting the site didn’t cause a parking issue on nearby streets.

Now the site is fully open and in use, a series of surveys will take place over weekends in September, October and November to check the impact on nearby streets. MHC Traffic will be conducting the survey on behalf of Blackpool Council and the Enterprise Zone team.

The survey will include Division Lane East, the newly resurfaced Division Lane West and Common Edge Road and will monitor traffic and parking at the new car park and also at Jepson Way. The surveys will take place at the busiest periods for the facility, namely Thursday evenings and Saturday and Sunday mornings.

Surveys will take place on:

14 September – 4pm to 10pm

16 September – 7am to 2pm

17 September- 7am to 2pm

19 October – 4pm to 10pm

21 October- 7am to 2pm

22 October- 7am to 2pm

16 November – 4pm to 10pm
