Lewes Road Triangle resident parking scheme consultation

Report of the Executive Director of Environment, Development & Housing (copy attached).

 

Decision:

1)           That the Committee approves:

 

(a)  That an extension of the Area J resident parking scheme be considered within the Lewes Road Triangle area and that this proposal be progressed to the final design with the Traffic Order advertised to allow further comment.

 

(b)  That a further restriction on loading on the east side of Lewes Road just north of the Elm Grove junction is advertised as a separate traffic order between 10am-4pm.

 

(c)  That an order should be placed for any required pay and display equipment to ensure implementation of the new proposed parking scheme (if agreed at a further committee meeting) is undertaken as programmed. 

 

Minutes:

20.1.    The Committee considered a report of the Executive Director of Environment, Development & Housing that set out the results of the recent consultation undertaken for the proposed extension to the Area J residents parking scheme within the Lewes Road Triangle area and requested approval to proceed to the final design stage and publication of the necessary traffic order.

 

20.2.    Councillor Daniel noted there were many empty shops in the area and relayed her concern that the scheme proposed further loading restrictions and that the proposals could adversely affect businesses already struggling. Councillor Daniel enquired further as to business feedback to the consultation.

 

20.3.    The Parking Infrastructure Manager stated that the loading restrictions only applied specifically to cycle safety and junctions for vehicles and the proposals did not recommend significant changes to the existing arrangements. The Parking Infrastructure Manager clarified that local businesses had attended consultation meetings and had predominantly commented on visitor parking. Further meetings further meetings would be scheduled to discuss these issues. The Parking Infrastructure Manager added that it was intended for the proposals to create more parking spaces but these spaces would be pay and display.

 

20.4.    Councillor Davey noted that there was no reference in the report about the number of spaces that would be made pay and display and the cost of the parking. Councillor Daniel asked if parking would be offered at a reduced tariff, similar to that on London Road.

 

20.5.    The Parking Infrastructure Manager stated that detailed correspondence would be reviewed in drawing up the final design and the parking tariff would be low tariff.

 

20.6.    RESOLVED-

 

1)           That the Committee approves:

 

(a)  That an extension of the Area J resident parking scheme be considered within the Lewes Road Triangle area and that this proposal be progressed to the final design with the Traffic Order advertised to allow further comment.
