Background and reasons for the proposals
Proposed new parking charges
We are required by law to publish official notices about the proposed changes to parking and permit charges.
We published our proposed traffic management orders to give effect to these proposals on 29 March 2019 and put up street notices on all affected streets as part of the statutory consultation under The Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984. This ran concurrently with this wider consultation and representations or objections were submitted as part of this consultation or in accordance with the draft orders. The consultation ended on 5 May 2019.
