Have your say on parking changes


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 is Friday 16 February.

Chairman of the council’s Regeneration and Property Committee, Cllr Ben Fitter-Harding, said: “These proposals could affect the availability of parking right outside people’s homes, so it’s one of the most important consultations we carry out each year.

“Many of the suggestions have come from individuals, so we need to know whether these ideas have wider support before they can be implemented. And a change in one location may have a knock-on effect elsewhere, so the full implications need to be considered.

“I would urge everyone to see if their road is affected and if it is, to make their views known. We want to get this right and the input of residents is vital.”
