Plans to extend residents' parking scheme in Brighton approved
Plans to extend a residential parking zone in Brighton have been approved at recent council meeting.
Brighton and Hove City Council’s Transport Committee met on Tuesday to consider plans to extend the Area J Residents Parking Scheme in the London Road Station area.
The committee voted 5 to 3 in favour of the plans.
The council carried out two public consultations in relation to the plans.
In London Road Station North, 58% or 385 respondents supported the extension of the parking scheme.
In Round Hill, 56% or 239 respondents supported the extension of the parking scheme.
The meeting concluded that there was “positive opinion from the majority of respondents” and that plans to extend the scheme should go ahead.
Conservative Councillor Graham Cox said: "I think we have now reached the limit of controlled parking schemes in the city. Unless there is an overwhelming case for the need of further schemes then I would hope this is the end of it.
"The results of the public consultations were not too convincing. All the schemes will do is push the parking problem onto the next road and the next, and so on."
