Following complaints received from some residents of Clements Court regarding the indiscriminate parking occurring in the area and a subsequent petition requesting the introduction of parking controls, the Council are now undertaking a consultation with residents to ascertain whether there is majority support for the introduction of a controlled parking zone (CPZ) to alleviate the reported difficulties.
The purpose of the consultation is to give residents the opportunity to assess the Councils’ proposals before indicating whether you would support the CPZ or not.
The attached letter, which summaries how CPZs work as well as the costs involved, and plan, which details the proposed CPZ design (location of parking bays, etc.) should be considered before residents complete and return the questionnaire.
This questionnaire, in addition to asking whether residents support the introduction of parking controls, also asks residents for their preferred operational days and hours in the event that there is majority support for the CPZ.
This is your opportunity to have a say on whether you would like a CPZ to be introduced and to make suggestions/comments about the proposed design and possible operational times. I would strongly encourage you to respond even if you do not experience parking difficulties and/or are not in favour of the CPZ being extended.
Once you are satisfied that you have sufficient information I would be grateful if you would return the completed questionnaire by 12 January 2018 at the latest.
The results of the consultation will be reported to your local ward councillors. If there is majority support from residents to the CPZ proposals, and Councillors approve, the scheme will be progressed to the statutory consultation stage whereby the Council advertises its intention to extend the CPZ.
This process is a 21-day period during which time any person can submit objections or representations to the Council’s proposals.
You will be notified in writing of the outcome of the consultation and any future action in due course.
Thank you for taking the time to participate in this consultation and I look forward to receiving your completed questionnaire. Alternatively, you can submit any feedback to Andrew Nye.
