Decision:

Resolved:

 

                      i.         That no further action towards the implementation of Residents Priority parking at this location be undertaken and that the consulted area be removed from the Residents Parking waiting list.

 

Reason:     The standard required percentage return rate for progressing to the legal advertisement stage has not been met.

Minutes:

Officers outlined the report and noted that COVID-19 and the first lockdown had impacted on the original consultation process in March and therefore, a second consultation had been undertaken in September which received a small return rate of only 31% of residents. As the consultation had received less than 50% of residents responding a standard criteria for the Council, the recommendation was therefore for no further action towards the implementation of Residents Priority parking at this location.

 

The Executive Member noted that this instance had highlighted a potential problem with the Council’s standard criteria and considered whether a future policy change especially for areas with a high HMO residency, could be introduced to assist these areas with being able to implement a Residents Priority Parking when popular enough with local residents.

 

Resolved:

 

                      i.         That no further action towards the implementation of Residents Priority parking at this location be undertaken and that the consulted area be removed from the Residents Parking waiting list.
