  • "It is always a shame to not be able to find a convenient place to park near home when you want it, however these people are only affected for perhaps 4 hours a week, ok occasionally perhaps 8 hours. I hope that they don't have the cheek to complain about parking in other areas of the city!"

Albion matchday parking scheme on streets around The Amex approved by Coldean and Moulscoomb residents

A parking permit scheme designed to keep residential streets clear during Albion match days has received the backing of residents.

People living in Coldean and Moulsecoomb have voted in favour of a parking scheme in their neighbourhoods during match days and large events at American Express Community Stadium.

Consultation of 4,000 residents and businesses carried out in the autumn revealed that more than three-quarters of Coldean residents and more than two thirds in Moulsecoomb responded favourably to bringing the scheme.

Members on the council’s transport committee will have final say on the plans next week, which will affect nearly 80 streets.

If agreed, the residents’ parking scheme could be in place by June in time for summer events and the start of the 2013/14 football season.

The move has been proposed to prevent Seagulls’ supporters parking close to the stadium in unofficial parking areas.
