FAQ’s

 

Frequently Asked Questions Airshow Road Closures and Parking

 

Q         Why are the roads closed?

A         The main routes around the display site are closed for the safety of the event and access by emergency services. Residential roads are closed to prevent residents being inconvenienced and inundated by day visitors.

 

Q         How will I get to my property when the road is closed?

A         Holders of Resident Passes will be allowed through road closures to gain access to properties, expect where the Airshow event prevents access. Some roads may also have no vehicular access.

 

Q         You have supplied us with two Resident Passes for our property but four people live here all with cars, how do we get more passes?

A         If you require more passes, these can be requested using the contact form on the Airshow website.

 

Q         I have family visiting for the weekend and I need more than 2 Resident passes?

A         If you require more passes, these can be requested using the contact form on the Airshow website.

 

Q         Is my blue badge valid in this area?  

A         No a blue badge holder must display the Resident Pass alongside their blue badge.

Where parking restrictions are clearly displayed blue badge holders must comply with the notice.

 

Q         I have meals delivered each day – will I still receive these?

A         We recommend that you contact your supplier to make them aware of the air show and possible disruption. However, Marshals will allow these services through the closures if they explain their purpose for gaining access

 

Q         I have a carer visit me at home and they need access – how will this work?

A         We recommend that you inform your care provider to make them aware of the air show and possible disruption. We suggest that you pass on your Resident Pass to your care provider ahead of the air show. If you are unable to do so then your carer will need to explain their purpose to the road closure marshals.

 

Q         Do the parking restrictions remain the same as normal inside road closures?

A         Yes, except where parking has been specifically suspended inside the road closures. Please read displayed notices for further details.

 

Q         Can I cycle on the closed roads?

A         Yes you may cycle on closed roads; there will be adequate cycle parking on Preston Green close to the display site.

 

Q         What parking will be available to people living and working on affected roads?

A         Parking will be available, except where there is a parking suspension in place. Please see website for further details and check notices displayed on site.

 

Q         I’m a beach hut owner, how can I access my beach hut?

A         There are no vehicular access arrangements for beach hut owners during the event. If vehicular access is required, access can still be gained outside of the road closure times. Vehicles must be removed during the times of road closures.

 

Q         How do I get access to Torbay Road?

A         There will be no vehicular access to Torbay Road. Access to nearby side roads can be obtained via Sands Road and Queens Road. Queens Road one-way system will be suspended during the Airshow to allow two-way travel. As long as parking is not suspended, you may park in a nearby street within the closure and display your issued permit.  Parking on Queens Road and Garfield Road will be suspended to allow for the operation of two way traffic.
