Residents and businesses invited to give views on residents’ parking

Consultation starts on Monday, 6 July with residents and businesses to gauge support for a residents’ parking zone in the Fiveways and Surrenden area of Brighton.

The proposed area also includes Hollingbury Park Avenue and Hollingbury Terrace. Residents will be given the option of a five or seven day scheme with enforcement from 9am to 8pm.  Other options for different times/hours could be considered which would need further committee approval.

All homes, businesses and services in the area will receive details and questionnaires about the proposed scheme, and the survey will be available online at www.brighton-hove.gov.uk/surrendenandfiveways from 6 July. There will be a staffed exhibition at St Mary’s Catholic Church, 5 Surrenden Road on 22 July between 1pm and 8pm, plus an unstaffed exhibition at Hove Town Hall, in the Customer Service Centre, between 9am and 5pm during the consultation period.

Proposals for the scheme were drawn up following a citywide parking survey carried out last year and councillors gave the go ahead for consultation at the March Environment, Transport & Sustainability Committee meeting. Closing date for comments is 14 August.

Councillor Gill Mitchell, chair of the Environment, Transport & Sustainability Committee, said: “During the parking review in 2014 residents asked the council to look into the possibility of a parking scheme in these areas, so we encourage everyone to tell us what they think during the six week consultation. All comments we receive will be carefully considered and the results reported to the Environment, Transport & Sustainability Committee on 13 October.”
