Residents' Parking update

I don't know whether it's a coincidence or not (!), but after complaining last week that I hadn't heard anything for over a month, I met yesterday with senior officers concerning the reconsultation on Residents' Parking Zones.

What they were proposing seems broadly sensible. The proposed pilot areas and an area around will be reconsulted to find out whether they want to be included and to gather information about local needs and situations. This time, local businesses, community groups and similar organisations will be consulted too. There will also be more and better information for residents, so that they can make an informed choice, rather than the simplistic thing that was sent around in July.

There are still details to be hammered out, but something explaining the process should be going out to residents within the next few weeks.
