Have your say on parking changes30 January 2017
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.
Changes are proposed at dozens of sites across the district and the deadline for comments has been extended to Monday 20 February.
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.”
Any objections received will be reported to the Joint Transportation Board on Tuesday 28 February and the Regeneration and Property Committee on Thursday 16 March, where councillors will decide which of the proposals to implement. These meetings are open to the public.
