There are a number of stages involved in the review, these are shown below. Due to the number of stages in the review, it takes about one year to complete a parking review from start to finish.
The current stage is Authorisation
The 2023 parking review took place over June and July 2023 and proposals are currently being considered by county councillors. Over 120 requests for new or amended parking restrictions in the borough were assessed as part of the review.
All proposals will need to be agreed for advertisement by county councillors and the Parking and Traffic Enforcement Team manager.
Advertisement and objections
The agreed parking proposals will be advertised over a 28 day period. This will include the publishing of a formal notice in a local newspaper; street notices being erected on site at each location; plus drawings and a statement of reasons being available to view online at the bottom of this page. Those properties immediately fronting locations where changes are proposed will be notified individually by letter.
All feedback received will be considered by county councillors and the Parking and Traffic Enforcement Team manager, and a final decision will be made on how to proceed at each location. All objections, support and comment responses will then be summarised in a 'Decision report', which will include a decision for each location. This report will be made available to download and view at the bottom of this page. Those who respond to the advertisement will be notified of the final decisions by email or by letter.
The agreed restrictions would be installed on the ground in 2024.
