Thanks for the responses to the consultation on parking. We have not yet seen the results but we have been knocking on doors and expect there will be some mixed views. To remind you, the officers’ proposals were:
The proposals followed on from last year’s consultation and the proposals for CPZs are in areas where residents favoured them. Parking is an issue of concern for many people, with pressure coming from St Helier hospital, commuter parking and people visiting the town centre. This will only get worse over the next ten years as further town centre redevelopment takes place. If it is not tackled now, the opportunity will be missed.
We will look carefully at the consultation results and ask for changes if it is clear the proposals are not supported. There will be a further statutory consultation on the final proposals with any scheme implemented in the summer.1 Comment
