Residents Parking Report pdf icon PDF 115 KB

To consider a report of the Corporate Director for Place Management & Regeneration.

 

NOTE: This item has been placed on the agenda following a recommendation of the Communities & Housing Scrutiny Committee.

 

The Council placed a moratorium on the introduction of any new resident parking schemes in 2019 to enable a full review of the existing approach to be taken. This review was required as elements of the existing policy were not working effectively and were not meeting the needs of residents. There were also concerns relating to the impact of schemes on local services and the town and district centres. In order to ensure a coordinated approach, it was agreed that all policies and procedures relating to residents parking, including the Town Centre, would be reviewed.

 

In light of the above, the purpose of this paper is:

 

·         To seek comments on the proposed revised principles to guide future parking policy decisions

·         To seek feedback on the proposed changes to resident parking policy and town centre parking policy to reflect the revised principles.

 

The Area Committee is recommended to comment on and note the report.
