Extended residents’ parking schemes in Hove come on stream

An extension to parking schemes W & R, which covers the area around Wish Park and Bolsover Road in Hove come into operation from this week

The Wish Park scheme is an extension to the Area W ‘light touch’ controlled parking zone and will operate seven days a week, from 10am to 11am and 7pm to 8pm.

Bolsover Road is an extension to the Area R parking scheme and operates seven days a week 9am to 8pm.

Last year the council consulted residents and local businesses on whether they would like controlled parking in their area. Seventy five per cent of respondents in Wish Park and 92.5% of respondents of Bolsover Road voted in favour of the proposals.

The parking scheme extensions for this area in Hove were drawn up following the citywide parking review which showed that residents were experiencing parking problems in the locality.
