Earlier this year we received a request asking for the operating times of the permit parking scheme in your area to be extended. This was because of parking difficulties caused by vehicles being left in the road from 4pm, meaning residents were finding it hard to park near their homes when returning from work.
We are writing to seek your views on parking in your road and whether you would support the extension of the operational times.
We are still at an early stage and no decisions have yet been made. We would like to know if you think the introduction of such a scheme would be beneficial to your area and your comments will help us reach a decision about whether to proceed with the proposal.
If a majority of responses to this consultation are in favour of a permit scheme we will draw up detailed plans and consult with you again in February 2017 before any formal changes are advertised.
Why We Are Consulting
The proposals follow requests from local residents who want changes to the times of the current parking scheme. We want to hear your views on the consultation.
The review is at an early stage and no decisions have been made. We would like to know if you think the introduction of these changes would be beneficial to your area and your comments will help us reach a decision about whether to proceed with the proposal.
Thank you for taking the time to respond to this consultation.
What Happens Next
After the closing date of 13 January 2017 we will process all responses.
Depending on the level of support for the proposals we will decide one of the following ways forward.
If there is a low level of support for the proposals there will be no further action.
If there are a high number of suggested alternatives, these will be considered before we undertake further consultation.
If there is a high level of support for the proposals, detailed plans will be drawn up and further consultation will take place.
If this further consultation shows that the majority of loca addresses support the introduction of the scheme, a draft Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) will be written and advertised allowing 21 days for formal consultation. If there are no objections the restrictions will be introduced and the draft TRO made permanent. If objections are received, we will need to consider these and present a report to Planning Committee for a decision.
