Report of the Executive Director, Economy, Environment & Culture
1) That the committee agrees to the list of priorities for new parking schemes / reviews (Appendix B) which are incorporated into the updated parking scheme priority timetable outlined in Appendix C.
34.1 The Committee considered a report of the Executive Director, Economy, Environment & Culture that sought approval for a list of priorities for new parking schemes and reviews which would be incorporated into the updated parking scheme priority timetable.
34.2 Councillor Brown stated that she welcomed the introduction of Zone P in part of the Hove Park ward but noted this had cause displacement in the Goldstone Valley area and disruption to the 21 bus service and therefore, she was hopeful for the introduction of additional double yellow lines in that area. In reference to paragraph 5.17, Councillor Brown stated that she had great concern for the potential introduction of pay and display bays in the zone and that was a concern shared by residents.
34.3 The Head of Parking Services explained that double yellow lines would be introduced in the vicinity of Goldstone Valley and also in Hazledene Meads. In relation to any changes to the Hove Park scheme, the proposed timetable recommended a review at the end of 2020 that would give significant time to analyse the results of the introduction and residents would be consulted on any changes and those views would be reported to the committee.
34.4 Councillor Heley asked if Zone J could be brought forward in the timetable as there were significant parking issues in the area and residents would welcome an earlier consultation.
34.5 The Head of Parking Services answered that as outlined in Appendix B, Zone J was the top priority outlined. Commitments were already in place based on previous representations, particularly in the Surrenden Road area, Coombe Road and South Portslade. Should Zone J be brought forward in the timetable, this would cause other schemes to be delayed that would likely cause distress and concern to residents in those area.
34.6 Councillor Wares stated that no resident wished to live in a controlled parking zone however, the issue was forced upon them by constant displacement. This was a situation that would only get worse as pockets of areas without parking controls were made. Councillor Wares stated that a wholesale review of parking in the city was required and LTP5 should look at that matter as an entire subject.
34.7 Councillor West agreed with the proposal made by Councillor Wares adding that consideration needed to be given to a different approach than the one in place.
34.8 RESOLVED- That the committee agrees to the list of priorities for new parking schemes / reviews (Appendix B) which are incorporated into the updated parking scheme priority timetable outlined in Appendix C.
