Take part in the parking permit survey

People from across the city will be able to give their views in an online survey about parking permits, starting on Monday, 22 June.

Brighton & Hove City Council is collecting information on the types of permits currently in use and how they are working for those that use them. The council also wants to gather views about how the current system can be changed and improved.

On the existing permits, residents will be asked whether they would like the option of three or six monthly permits in some zones which would give more flexibility. Traders and businesses are also asked if they would be interested in multi zone permits.

Councillor Gill Mitchell, chair of the Environment, Transport and Sustainability Committee, said: “We want to make sure that parking permits are issued fairly and work for the people who use them. Parking affects our communities in different ways and all the views gathered will be considered when we look at how to improve the parking permit system for residents, visitors, businesses and other services such as schools.”

To take part in the survey go to www.brighton-hove.gov.uk/parkingpermit-survey (the questionnaire will be available after 10am on 22 June). Paper copies are available from parking services at Hove Customer Service Centre. The closing date is 31 July and the results will be presented to the Environment, Transport and Sustainability Committee on 6 October for councillors to decide on the way forward.
