The Executive Member is asked to consider a report that follows on from the Parking Update report to the November 2019 Executive and focuses on the implementation of the new Parking back office system, responses to the resident parking scrutiny review of March 2019 and the decisions around its implementation.
A. That it be noted that there have been delays to the delivery of the project due to the Covid-19 impacts, but good progress has been made on the project and the back office system will be ready to go live in December 2020;
B. That approval be given to the back office system to go live in December 2020 ahead of a direct debit solution in place. The proposed solution is too complex to implement a part of the initial roll out, but will be investigated further as a second phase roll out in 2021 and this will enable monthly payment;

E. That the decision made through emergency powers be confirmed to extend the operating hours of Piccadilly car park, during the COVID-19 recovery stages, to 8pm in line with the longer opening hours of the footstreets.

Annex A lists out all the permits and whether there is a change required and if so what that change is.

a. Rationalising the list of parking permits available to better meet the current requirements of customers.
b. Changes and updates to the supporting TRO to bring wording in line with current legislation and practice.
c. Minor modifications to align the wording in the TRO to the new back office system.
