Parking proposals out to consultation

Proposals for new sets of single and double yellow lines, pavement parking bans and other parking restrictions are now out to public consultation.

Each year, the city council receives many requests for yellow lines and other restrictions from residents, councillors and organisations, and these are considered annually in the parking review.

Proposed changes at dozens of sites across the district are out to consultation and can now be viewed and commented on. The deadline for comments is Tuesday 29 March.

Chairman of the council’s Regeneration and Property Committee, Cllr Ben Fitter-Harding, said: “Most of these proposals have been put forward by local people, but what we don’t know is whether they have the wider support of residents who live in the surrounding area.

“It can be the case that one possible solution to a problem can cause a knock on effect further down the road or in another nearby street, which we will only uncover through the consultation process.

“Many streets in the district could therefore be affected by these proposals, so we’d urge people to have a look and let us know what they think.”

All objections will be reported to councillors at the Joint Transportation Board in June and the Regeneration and Property Committee in July, where councillors will decide which of the proposals to implement. These meetings are open to the public.

Proposals that do not receive objections are likely to be implemented by May 2016.
