Why was a parking scheme introduced in the Preston Village area?
Zone K was introduced in response to complaints about the high number of commuter 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, it was decided to introduce a scheme that would include bays for use by residents and their visitors, businesses and services.
On 27 June 2017, the Environment, Transport & Sustainability Committee approved a residents parking scheme for Preston Village. A weekday scheme was agreed, which would operate Monday–Friday 9am–8pm.
The committee report has been archived on the Council and democracy section of our website.
