Minutes:

(A)          PETITIONS

 

(1)           Reduce resident parking permit fees

 

6.1          The Committee considered a petition referred from Full Council and signed by 58 people requesting the council reduce resident parking permit fees.

 

6.2          The Chair provided the following response:

 

“Parking charges are reviewed annually by the Council alongside wider environmental considerations that aim to reduce congestion, improve traffic management and improve air quality.  The surplus generated from charges after direct costs contributes towards the part funding of bus subsidies, concessionary bus fares and Local Transport Plan costs. Recent charges were voted on at a meeting of all councillors back in February, when we hold budget council.

As part of this we also wanted to specifically address concerns about affordability and so brought forward proposals, agreed as part of the fees & charges proposals for 21/22, that a discount for low income households would be introduced - which is planned to be brought in within a few months”.

 

6.3          RESOLVED- That the Committee note the petition.

 

(2)           Create 45-degree parking bays on Roedale road to improve local

residents quality of life

 

6.4          The Committee considered a petition referred from Full Council and signed by 41 people requesting the council create 45-degree parking bays on Roedale Road.

 

6.5          The Chair provided the following response:

 

“The feasibility of this will be considered when we consult the area for a resident parking scheme.  This will begin at the end of the year with the consultation due in early 2022.

I am sorry this cannot be looked at before the parking scheme design takes place but it’s important this work is undertaken alongside the wider area.  We need to ensure that when we consult the area the full impact of any changes to parking is communicated to all residents as part of that process”.

 

6.6          RESOLVED- That the Committee note the petition.
