Why were parking schemes introduced in Hanover and Elm Grove?

Zones S and V were introduced in response to complaints about the high number of vehicles parked in the area all day. This was making parking difficult for local residents.

The council proposed a scheme which aimed to address double parking, parking on pavements and on double yellow lines. The council wanted to improve:

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

Based on feedback from residents and businesses, the plan was to introduce two parking schemes – a full scheme in line with other areas of the city, and a part-time (light touch) scheme that would deter parking by non-residents during the working day.

On 14 March 2017 the Environment, Transport & Sustainability Committee approved the proposed residents parking schemes for Hanover and Elm Grove.

The plans were subjected to amendments, which were approved by the committee on 27 June 2017.

Zone S would operate as a light-touch area Monday–Friday: 11am–noon, and 6pm–7pm.

Zone V would operate as a full scheme: i.e. seven days a week between 9am and 8pm.

Both schemes would include bays for use by residents and their visitors, businesses and services.

The committee report has been archived on the Council and democracy section of our website.
