Residents’ chance to fine tune their parking schemes

Residents parking in Brighton’s Hanover, Elm Grove and Craven Vale areas is a step closer, with the council advertising more details for public consultation from Friday April 29.

The authority has published legally-required Traffic Orders for the schemes. Local people overwhelmingly backed residents’ parking during consultation over the winter.

The Orders spell out details of how new parking restrictions would be arranged in each street, including road markings and signage.

Hanover’s full scheme south of Elm Grove would become the new Zone V. Mainly north of Elm Grove a light-touch scheme would be Zone S. Craven Vale would be Zone I.

Official notices published also detail various prices that would be charged..

A council spokesperson said:  “This is a chance for residents to influence the process once again – and to help us make sure the arrangements in each street suit local people as far as possible.”

Details are available on the council’s website at
