Jac, presumably you would favour extending the control hours to all day Sunday, and Saturday? I can see why your circumstances would benefit from that.
Not necessarily, whilst it would solve our problem so would policing the residents bays on a sunday, they are filled with non residents who could be parked legally on a single yellow on sundays. Of course we could to but would then have to repark later when the other cars are gone.
As for the shared bays, in our case I do not think there would be a problem. The reason they are not used IMO is that there are more than required. The roads are residential so there is no demand for short term parking from shops, offices etc. There is not enough resident bays. It is possible once we have visitor parking the demand would increase but if they were limited to the current resident bays then parking several streets away would become the norm what ever the day/time.
