Monkgate Parking Changes

Decision Maker: Corporate Director of Economy and Place

Decision status: Decision Made

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Having considered the issues and consultation results, the Acting Director agreed to the report’s recommendations (i.e. that a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) should be advertised covering the removal of the two parking spaces on the south side of Monkgate, along with the conversion of an existing residents only space on the north side to make just for use by Guest House and Multiple Occupancy permit holders only, all as shown in Annex B).
If objections are received, the Acting Director decided they should be reported to a future Executive Member Decision Session for Planning & Transport where public attendance and speaking on the matter would be possible.

In consulting with residents further about the TRO, the Acting Director agreed that the additional proposal to install cycle parking racks in the two areas currently covered by the parking spaces in question should be put forward for consultation with residents. This should include sending out a photomontage to help explain what is proposed.

In addition, it was also agreed that a, parking survey will be carried out to assess the current usage levels of the existing parking bays, and the results would be reported to the relevant decision making body.

Options Considered:

Option 1 : remove spaces at both no. 42 and Agar Street and change the extra space created on the north side of Guest House / Multi Occupancy (GMO). This was the option that was sent out for consultation.

Option 2 (a): remove the parking space at no. 42 leave the space at the Agar Street junction, and change the extra space created on the north side of the GMO.

Option 2 (b): leave the existing parking space at no. 42, remove the existing parking space at Agar Street, and leave the extra space on the north side as residents only.

Option 3: do nothing.
