Shoreham parking scheme up for the vote
Parking restrictions could be introduced in Shoreham after West Sussex County Council asked consultants to draw up plans for a residents’ scheme.
This would mean householders would have to pay £40 for a permit to leave their vehicles outside their homes from Monday to Saturday between 9am and 5pm.
Thousands of people in the town are being asked their views on the scheme, which would stretch from Brighton Road and High Street northwards to Mill Lane.
It would include Victoria Road and part of Old Shoreham Road in the west and stretch to Eastern Avenue in the east.
A number of other restrictions are also planned for Shoreham Beach.
A survey last summer showed two-thirds of 1,383 who responded wanted further parking investigations to take place.
Angie Mills, chairman of the county council’s Adur County Local Committee, said: “No decisions have been taken on this yet – we are still at an early stage in the process.
“We want to assure residents that no changes will be made to parking in their road without further consultation.
“We just want as many people as possible to comment on these proposals so we have as clear an indication as possible about how residents feel about them.”
Letters, with a prepaid envelope, have been posted to the residents and businesses affected by the plans.
A public exhibition is being held at The Shoreham Centre, in Pond Road, between 2pm and 7pm on October 11, and between 10am and 3pm on October 13.
Responses must be submitted to West Sussex County Council by October 26.
The results will be reported in March, when a decision will be made on whether to proceed with the next stage of public consultation.
