Parking is an increasing problem in our area. Residents struggle to park outside their own homes and inconsiderate parking across driveways and dropped kerbs makes everyone’s life harder.
We recognise this is a problem and would work with residents to come up with solutions that suit each area. Enforcement of existing parking restrictions is an important first step that we would take and it may be that residential parking zones are suitable in some areas.
Alongside these measures, our approach is to encourage greater use of public transport and to make cycling and walking more attractive options. Reducing the impact of cars on our environment is a key factor in combatting pollution and improving the general feel of our neighbourhoods.
