Items referred from Council
To consider items referred from the last meeting of Full Council held on 20 July 2023
1) Reinstate parking meters
26.1 The committee considered a petition referred from Full Council requesting the reinstatement of parking meters in the city.
26.2 The Chair provided the following reply:
“The decision to remove the machines was made at Budget Council on 23rd February 2023 and represents a significant financial saving of £220,000 in 2023/24 as well as ongoing yearly savings.
These savings come from not having to maintain, repair and replace machines, collect cash payments or go ahead with a planned upgrade to 4G technology. The change mirrors other local authorities.
An Equalities Impact Assessment has been completed and is available on the council's website. It outlines the accessible methods to pay for parking which include; by telephone, by mobile application, by texting to park, by using the PBP back office and in cash at one of the 150 PayPoint outlets in the city”.
26.3 Resolved- That the Committee note the petition.
2) On street hospital parking- Zone H
26.4 The Committee considered a petition referred from Full Council objecting to parking charge increases in the Zone H area.
26.5 The Chair provided the following response:
“A report to this Committee outlines the responses on the proposal to keep paid parking tariffs around the Hospital low tariff rather than move to high tariff. It is proposed to keep these tariffs low rather than the 23/24 budget proposals to increase to high tariff”
26.6 Resolved- That the Committee note the petition.
