Thousands have say on extending Brighton resident parking scheme

Thousands of residents have had their say on extending a resident parking scheme.

Brighton and Hove City Council wants to ask those living in the areas of Round Hill and north of London Road station if they would like to pay for a permit to leave their vehicles outside their homes.

More than 3,000 residents responded with 58% and 56% respectively in favour of parking controls.

Similar plans were rejected by locals in 2009.

Ian Davey, chairman of council’s transport committee, said: “We will take people’s comments into consideration in finding the right balance for residents, business and visitors, to keep traffic moving and to maintain access to premises and local facilities.”

A decision on whether to go forward with the extended zones will be taken by the Transport Committee tomorrow.

If agreed, a traffic order will be published outlining the proposals.

Prediction for you. Ian Davey will drive this through regardless. How many people actually responded? Is this another re run of the Lewes Rd 'consultation'? Anything this man says is not worth the effluent it is written on. Vote of no confidence e-petition still running on B&H website.

Funny thing is Idiot, most people seem to be in favour. Whether you like it or not selfishness of wanting to park outside your own house tends to trump free but congested parking for all and you Tories would not repeal one parking zone, quite the opposite as you extended them when in power!

I am looking to the petition debate, I predict of lot of embarrassment for your party.

This will just push the cars without permits to the next free area. As the parking zones spread more will vote in favour of permits so they can park.
Result will be permits all over B&H and the council can say the majority voted for them. More revenue. Simples!

I responded. Response rates for public consultations are usually low - even for topics as contentious as parking. The response rates for these consultations I belive were 'good' with much higher percentages than usual.

And, anyway, parking issues need resolving no matter what party leads the Council.

Davey has a long history of using Data as he sees fit.
Trouble is with resident apathy until after something is a done deal (Lewes Road is a good example nobody responded apart from Bricycles and now the City is stuck with this grossly unpopular scheme that will block the main A27 from Falmer cause extra traffic for surrounding areas and the Moulscombe estate being used as a rat run.
Apathy rules and the Davey leads.

In my mind you've got to be a complete mug to want to pay £120 to pay to park in the road you already pay car tax for. If you choose to live in area where parking is tight that is your choice. Yet people still moan others park in "their" space. It's not your space it's anyones, anyone that pays car tax can park there for as long as they like. Well if you want to pay £120 odd a year to park closer fine, but in my view you've either got more money than sense or no sense at all.
