Revised Brighton parking permit plans published

First published in News

Revised plans for a resident parking scheme near Brighton's Preston Park Station have been unveiled.

Brighton and Hove City Council is asking those living and working in the area north of the station to comment on its proposal to charge those who want to leave their vehicles on streets outside their homes.

This will see restrictions imposed from Monday to Friday from 9am to 8pm in streets including Tivoli Crescent North, Tivoli Road, Maldon Road and Matlock Road.

The Area E scheme has been created after an initial plan for restrictions including weekends saw 50% for and 50% against.

Councillor Pete West, chairman of the council's environment, transport and sustainability committee, said: “We have listened to what people told us during the consultation and adapted our proposals as a result. We want to find the right balance for residents, businesses and visitors as well as to keep traffic moving safely.”

A consultation to the formal traffic order will run from January 13 to February 4 Comments will be reported back to a future meeting of the Environment, Transport and Sustainability Committee.

This is purely a money making scheme by the council not to get the traffic moving, if so why not charge £10 a year admin cost!

Look at the white hawk "scheme" which has just displaced residents from outside the front door who then cause chaos on Manor Hill.

Anyway on to the next area and so on.

You would expect it to be about 30% cheaper if it is Monday to Friday, but I doubt that this will be the case.

I just cannot understand why these schemes have to run until 8pm!
Surely 6pm would be far more sensible? I see wardens wandering around half empty streets in other areas early evening, what a waste of (our) money Grrrrrrrrrr!

Ker-ching! This is all about making more money folks. Believe what they say that it's to improve it all for you, you will believe anything. Ask anyone in other areas with the expensive parking schemes in place. It's obscene!

I LIVE IN THE DROVEWAY, Hove Park Area and expect to receive displacement from this scheme. I hope a scheme for the Hove Park Area will be brought forward

Another money making scheme. I live in the 'J' area and restrictions are over the weekend as well. That doesn't seem fair! And I agree why have restrictions until 8pm? Just a money grabbing council. There should be a proper city wide plan for parking not just restrictions introduced as displaced vehicles cause problems. The whole system is mad and the consultation process is just for 'show'. Councils spend money consulting but aren't obliged to take any notice of alternative views. And they don't .

I suspect that the 8pm is there so that commuters who drive to London can get back and find a space

Really? a 100% turnout? sounds like Soviet-era Russia! How many didn't answer? I think the yes vote is much, much smaller than quoted. I might make an FOI request

Did a bit of digging and tracked down the Council minutes. 318 properties were asked, 91 were 'for' and 91 were 'against'.

91 out of 318 is a 29% 'yes' vote.
