We Asked, You Said, We Did

Here are some of the issues we have consulted on and their outcomes. See all outcomes

We asked

In June 2022, residents in the Withdean Road area were written to, to gauge whether there was support for a residents parking scheme.

The results from this initial consultation showed that 87.5% of respondents supported the introduction of a resident parking scheme.

Therefore, in November 2022 we wrote to residents and businesses in this area again and asked if they would support a light-touch residents’ parking scheme.

The proposed scheme would be active Monday to Sunday from 9am to 10am and 1pm to 2pm

You said

101 residents responded to the consultation.

  • 89% of residents support a light touch residents parking scheme
  • 80.6% or residents support a scheme to operate from 9 am to 10am and from 1pm to 2pm (7 days a week, Monday to Sunday)

You can find more information and full consultation results in the January 2023 Environment, Transport and Sustainability Committee report.

We did

Based on the consultation results and following the Environment, Transport and Sustainability committee in January 2023, we will be advertising a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) in February 2023.

The results of this will be presented to the Environment, Transport and Sustainability committee in June 2023.

The committee will decide what happens next. 

We asked

Following introduction of Zone X in August 2021, a review of this parking scheme took place in October 2022.

The review let residents tell us if they think we need to make any changes to the parking scheme.

You said

205 residents responded out of the 853 addresses we sent questionnaires to.

  • 69.7% are either satisfied or very satisfied with the current Zone X scheme
  • 71.6% are happy for the scheme to remain the same

We did

Based on the consultation results, we will not be proposing any changes to Zone X.

You can find more information and full consultation results in the Environment, Transport and Sustainability (ETS) Committee Report.


We asked

In November 2021, we wrote to residents in the Roedean area to gauge if there was support for the introducton of a residents parking scheme.

80% of respondents were in favour of a residents parking scheme.

Therefore in June 2022, we wrote to residents in the area again with a detailed parking design drawing for this area.

You said

Following the recent detailed design parking consultation in the Roedean area, the council did not receive a significant level of support for a scheme from residents to proceed at this time.

We did

Full results and further information can be found in the committee report from the Environment, Transport and Sustainability Committee report from September 2022.
