**Postcards were sent out to all  residents with in the zone boundary advising of the upcoming scheme. There was an error on the times of operation and they should have advised a light touch scheme to operate 7 days from 11am - noon & 6-7pm.**

On 10th October the Environment, Transport & Sustainability Committee approved a Residents Parking Scheme for West Hove. It was agreed to take forward a light touch scheme to operate 7 days from 11am - noon & 6-7pm.

The scheme is due to start in March 2018 and residents will be sent information on how to apply for permits nearer this time.

** The consultation has ended, a report was presented to the  Environment, Transport and Sustainability committee meeting held on  the 27th June 2017  where the scheme was approved to go to the Traffic Regulation Order Stage. (ITEM 16) **

 

We asked residents of the West Hove area about controlled parking proposals following the recent consultation in December 2016.

Leaflets were sent to all households within the scheme boundary.

 

West Hove parking proposals

We have proposed options for the parking scheme.

  • The scheme would operate for two separate restricted hours during the day from 11am to 12pm and 6pm to 7pm
  • The scheme would operate from seven days a week, which is in line with other schemes in the area

The proposed parking scheme includes bays for use by residents and their visitors, businesses and services.

Parking scheme plans

You can also see the details of the proposals at the Hove Customer Service Centre where an unstaffed exhibition will run from 24 April to 26 May 2017.

Why we're proposing a parking scheme for West Hove area

We're responding to an increasing number of comments and complaints about the high number of vehicles parked all day in the West Hove area. This is making it difficult for local residents to park.

Our proposals also aim to address double parking, parking on pavements and double yellow lines. We want to improve

  • safety for pedestrians
  • traffic flow
  • access for emergency vehicles
