At the request of the Area Committee this item has been placed on the agenda under the Open Forum arrangements.

 

Representatives from the Council and Stockport NHS Foundation Trust will be attendance at the meeting to discuss ongoing problems for residents caused by motorists working or visiting the hospital parking in nearby residential streets.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

This item had been placed on the agenda at the request of the Area Committee.

 

Dan Reason, representing the Stockport NHS Foundation Trust and Mark Glynn, Service Director for Place Management at Stockport Council, attended the meeting to answer questions from Councillors and members of the public in relation to efforts to address concerns about inappropriate parking on the residential roads around the Stepping Hill Hospital site.

 

Representatives of the Stepping Hill Neighbourhood Action Group (SNAG) also attended the meeting to express their views.

 

Dan Reason outlined the measures taken by the hospital since the public meeting held in 2017:-

 

·         the Trust had reduced the price for staff parking permits and as a result there had been a significant increase in the number of requests for permits;

·         an ‘Agile Working’ policy was due to be approved by the Trust that was an element of the Trust’s wider plan to reduce its estate and as a consequence the demand for car parking. Reducing the buildings occupied by the Trust on the hospital site may also release space for additional car parking capacity;

·         staff continued be encouraged to be courteous and considerate to neighbours when choosing their parking;

·         an audit of car parking usage and capacity on the hospital site was due to be completed soon.

 

Councillors and members of the public asked questions and made comments, including:-

 

·         Concerns were expressed that any measures introduced by the Council to reduce the availability of on-street parking in the vicinity of the hospital would lead to an undersupply of parking for hospital staff and visitors, thereby creating a further problem.

·         Queries were raised about the status of previous proposals for a multi-storey car park (MSCP) on the hospital site, demolishing existing ancillary buildings to provide temporary parking, or to provide additional capacity on existing tiered parking. In response it was confirmed that while the long term aspiration for the Trust was to reduce its building footprint there were currently no plans to do, nor to provide a MSCP. It was stated that the suggestion of a third tier on the existing parking would be considered further.

·         Clarification was sought on whether staff were being encouraged to use the Hazel Grove Park and Ride scheme. It was stated that a survey of staff travel origins indicated that the majority of staff were arriving from a northerly direction so the Park and Ride was not a convenient alternative. As a result, the Trust had given this less priority.

·         A number of questions were asked in relation to likely timescales for the impact of the Trust’s measures to be noticed by residents. No definitive date could be given.

·         It was acknowledged that the approval of the agile working policy would not immediately lead to improvements as there were operational requirements that would need to be implemented.

 

Representatives of SNAG outlined the background to the establishment of the Group in 2017 following a public meeting attended by local councillors, the Trust and Council officers. The Group had 350 members covering 22 roads around the hospital. Since 2017 SNAG had met with the local MP and featured a number of times in both the local and national media.

 

The Group expressed disappointment that no senior representative of the hospital had attended the meeting, and at the lack of progress in implementing measures to address their concerns that had been raised with the hospital on a number of occasions over a number of years. Disappointment was also expressed that the Trust had not been responsive to correspondence from the Group and that further meetings had not taken place despite assurances that they would. It was stated that the Group had been given the impression that their concerns were not shared or taken seriously by the Trust.

 

Mark Glynn made representations, including the following points:-

 

·         The difficulties of parking around the hospital, and the consequences for residents were acknowledged, but they  ...  view the full minutes text for item 4.(i)
