Meeting to discuss new residents parking scheme

First published in News

A MEETING is taking place to discuss a proposed residents’ parking scheme.

The Triangle Community Group (TCG) is concerned about Brighton and Hove City Council’s approval to extend the Area J Residents Parking Scheme in the Lewes Road triangle area.

Maureen Winder, of the TCG, said she had a number of issues with the proposed scheme, including the low consultation response, that up to 70% of residents are students or short-term residents and the impact on older residents who would have to pay for visitors’ permits.

She said: “I object to the lack of evidence that this is needed in every street, although I respect the need for some kind of scheme in Park Crescent and the surrounding area, where there were calls for a scheme to stop pavement parking and to ensure access for emergency vehicles.”

A council spokesman said 61% of respondents were in favour of the parking scheme being extended. The meeting is at the Phoenix Community Centre in Phoenix Place, Brighton, on Monday from 6pm to 8pm.

If a council representative bothers to attend, we can expect the same old rhetoric and avoidance of the issues and no concessions will be given; the scheme will go ahead as planned.

We can expect no support from the ward councillors either, with the likes of Ian Davey and co pushing for more and more oppression of car owners and drivers, and ever increasing charges.

Bob_The_Ferret is exactly right about the Council. I have no faith any more that they have an ounce of integrity. Sad.
