Decision details

New Revised On and Off Street Parking Schemes following community feedback

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


On 27 April 2017 Cabinet agreed that the new parking scheme proposals for on and off street parking go out for community feedback. This was to gather initial views from the public before formally consulting on the proposals as part of statutory consultation, which is required when implementing new parking management orders for on-street parking.


Cabinet approved the new revised parking schemes.

Reasons for the decision:

There are a number of off-street car parking areas that are free of charge. By changing these areas to pay and display with an hourly charge in line with other areas additional revenue would be generated.


There are a number of on-street parking areas around the district that could benefit by having a resident’s parking scheme, pay and display or both.

Alternative options considered:

A Community feedback exercise was undertaken to consider all alternatives and the proposal has been changed. Not implementing the scheme was not considered due to financial and traffic management considerations.
