Earlsdon Liveable Neighbourhood Final Plans

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link


Update February 2024 - The Traffic Regulation Orders (TROs) have now been advertised. These are required before we can get started on some parts of the scheme. Some parts of the Earlsdon Liveable Neighbourhood plan don’t need a Traffic Regulation Order so you may see work starting on things like pavement widening and traffic islands soon.


You can now get up to date information about the Earlsdon Liveable Neighbourhood on the Council's website.



Earlsdon Liveable Neighbourhood consultation has now concluded and here are the final plans. The Consultation to help make Earlsdon a more liveable neighbourhood has ended and the final plans are now available. We have reviewed all of your comments and made some changes to the proposals we shared with you during October and November last year.

Some of the proposals received wide support and we plan to introduce them without any changes. These include:

• area-wide 20mph zone

• toucan crossing on Albany Road and zebra crossing on Earlsdon Street close to the Co-op

• widening the pavement outside Earlsdon Primary School with new seating and greening

• new benches

• widening the pavement on Earlsdon Avenue South between the Elsie Jones Centre and the City Arms to provide a better pedestrian route

• adding another West Midlands Cycle Hire dock outside the library


We listened to your feedback and as a result we will make the following changes to the original proposals. For comparison, you can see the proposals we consulted on on the right hand side of this page. These are now superseded by the final proposals plan.


Spencer park area

We will not be introducing a bus gate on Spencer Road, or a one- way system on Newcombe Road and Spencer Avenue. We will not be introducing a no-entry on Berkeley Road North.

Instead, we will be introducing a raised table at the junction of Spencer Road and Dalton Road and at the junction of Broadway and Belvedere Road. A raised table means the road is raised to pavement level at the entire junction. This slows down traffic and creates a safer, step-free crossing area for pedestrians.


Beechwood Avenue area

We will not be introducing a no-entry at Warwick Avenue or Styvechale Avenue.

We will be introducing additional traffic calming features on Beechwood Avenue instead.

This will be a raised table at the junction of Beechwood Avenue and Warwick Avenue / Stoneleigh Avenue.

The proposed closure at Stoneleigh Avenue junction with Kenilworth Road will now be a no- entry instead. This will enable traffic to exit onto Kenilworth Road. The roads beyond the no-entry will remain two-way for all traffic. Cycles will be exempt from the no-entry.

We will reduce the length of proposed yellow lines on Beechwood Avenue. This will still improve visibility out of Styvechale Avenue and Warwick Avenue, but will mean more parking is available between the golf club and Kenilworth Road.

We will be installing traffic calming features along Beechwood Avenue, to reduce vehicle speeds including changes to road markings, enhancing the roundabout at Hartington Crescent and reducing yellow lines to help with parking.


Earlsdon Street area

We will be reducing the number of proposed no-entry and one-way streets. The following streets will remain as they are now:

  • Moor Street • Providence Street
  • Berkeley Road North • Berkeley Road South

We still plan to make Warwick Street one- way, from Moor Street to Arden Street. This will enable us to create additional parking. We will also hope to add an additional West Midlands Cycle Hire dock.

We will not be installing a market gate. Instead, we will introduce a traffic order that allows the road to be closed with temporary infrastructure when needed.

We will be narrowing the junction of Moor Street and Earlsdon Street to make it more difficult for traffic to ignore the existing no-entry.

We will we adding seating and cycle parking close to the zebra crossing at Providence Street making it harder for people to park on the zig-zag markings.

The new crossing at the Co-op means we will make small changes to parking on Earlsdon Street. We will create a daytime-only taxi bay (7am-7pm), on Moor Street - replacing the double yellow lines.


Arden Street and Shaftesbury Road

We will still introduce closures on these streets, to remove through traffic between Beechwood Avenue and Earlsdon Street. Using removable bollards will ensure access can be opened on event days such as Earlsdon Festival and for emergencies or road works etc.

We will add small sections of yellow lines to create a turning area for smaller vehicles. We will not be introducing a no-entry on Arden Street at the Radcliffe Road end.

The Traffic Regulation Orders (TRO's) have now been advertised. these are required before we can get started on some parts of the scheme. Some parts of the Earlsdon Liveable Neighbourhood Plan don't need a TRO so you may see work starting on things like pavement widening, and traffic islands soon.
