Minutes:

It was reported that there had been 9 registrations to speak at the meeting under the Council’s Public Participation Scheme.

 

Cllr Warters spoke in favour of the ePetition: CYC solve the University related parking, don’t just MOVE it, noting that the Council was only moving parking problems with its use of residents parking. He stated that the report recommendation would not solve parking problems and that the University of York needed to be made to address its parking.

 

Cllr Pavlovic also spoke on in relation to the ePetition stating that while he recognised the issues faced by residents from displaced parking the residents parking for residents of Badger Hill had been the correct decision for residents and had solved parking in the area.

 

Cllr Rowley thanked residents that had engaged in the ePetition received and spoke in favour of the petition noting that he would not support extending parking restrictions and the use of double yellow lines. He noted that the University should take responsibility for its impact on parking in the city by encouraging a reduction in car use.

 

Tony Unwin spoke in favour of maintaining the status quo in relation to parking at 5-11 Main Street, Fulford. He noted that he had spoken with the church who were also now in favour of no changes being made to the residents parking scheme.

 

Cllr Fenton noted that a majority of residents had supported the introduction of a residents parking scheme for the Revival Estate and asked that the Executive Member support. He noted that issues on the estate were more in relation to dangerous parking and not a lack of parking and welcomed a review in relation to further restrictions and a possible 20 MPH speed limit.

 

Anwen Hughes requested that Alma Terrace & Alma Grove be implemented as part of the R70 Residents Priority Parking Scheme at the same time as Kilburn Road and not delayed to allow advertising for other streets.

 

Margaret James also spoke in favour of Alma Terrace & Alma Grove be implemented as part of the R70 Residents Priority Parking Scheme at the same time as Kilburn Road. She noted that student accommodation was set to be opened and that restrictions should be implemented before students brought more cars into the area.

 

Katherine Crocker noted that residents had begun the process for residents parking on Alma Terrace and Alma Grove in November 2018 and requested that further delays to implementation not be put in place. She also noted that the Council needed a plan to reduce cars coming into the city.

 

Marina Knight raised concerns about the safety of residents in the Revival Estate and asked that a residents parking scheme be introduced to reduce its use by York College students and staff parking in the estate. She noted that pavements were used for parking making pavements unusable for disabled residents and unsafe for children playing in the streets. She questioned the cost of permits being a reason not to introduce noting that most homes had room for two cars already.
