Why was a parking scheme introduced in West Hove?

Zone L was 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

The plan was to introduce a scheme that would:

  • operate for two separate restricted hours during the day:
    • from 11am to 12pm
    • from 6pm to 7pm
  • operate seven days a week, in line with schemes in other parts of the city

On 10 October 2017 the Environment, Transport & Sustainability Committee approved a residents parking scheme for West Hove. A light-touch zone was agreed, which would operate seven days a week: 11am–noon, and 6pm–7pm.

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The committee report has been archived on the Council and democracy section of our website.
