Proposed extension to the Herne Bay residents’ parking zone

This consultation has now closed.

The council is currently consulting on a proposal to extend the Herne Bay residents’ parking zone to include Brunswick Square and parts of Richmond Street, Kings Road, Station Road and Hanover Street.

This would involve marking out parking bays wherever it is appropriate to do so and marking out double yellow lines where cars should not be parked, for example at road junctions.

Residents would need to buy a permit to park in the bays during the day and non-permit holders would only be able to park for an hour.  The restrictions would apply between 8.30am and 6pm Monday to Saturday.

Permits currently cost £55 per year and residents would be able to buy one permit per household, but due to the high demand, unfortunately, there is no guarantee any further permits would be available at this time.

Permit holders would be able to park anywhere in the Herne Bay residents’ parking zone and any Herne Bay permit holders would be able to park in the bays in the extended area.  

Residents would also be able to buy visitor permits for visitors or tradesmen which would allow them to park for up to 24 hours at a cost of £1.80.

Have your say

It is important we hear the views of residents who would be affected by this proposal.  Because of the implications for residents, we would only implement the extension if we know that a significant majority of households responding want residents’ parking in their roads.  

If the majority of households are not in favour, we would not reconsider changes to residents’ parking in this area for at least another three years.

Give your views by completing our questionnaire by 12 noon on Friday 29 March 2019.  Alternatively, you can email or write to Richard Jenkins, Senior Transportation Engineer, Canterbury City Council, Canterbury, Kent, CT1 1YW.
