We Asked

After the Environment, Transport and Sustainability committee on 25 June 2019, we agreed to write to all residents and businesses in the Coombe Road area.

We asked if the residents and businesses in this area would support a light-touch residents’ parking scheme. The proposed scheme would be active Monday to Friday from 10am to 11am and from 5pm to 6pm.

You Said

64% of respondents support the implementation of a residents parking scheme.

We Did

Based on the consultation results we have included the proposal of the light touch scheme in a traffic regulation order (TRO).

We're advertising the TRO  until 15 May 2020 (reference: TRO-6-2020).

View current traffic regulation orders.

We Asked

Following requests from residents, we asked the people who live in the Hove Park area about a new residents’ parking scheme.

You Said

  • 68.4% were in favour of a residents’ parking scheme in the area
  • 7 in 10 (69.9%) were happy for the scheme to be active Monday to Friday from 9am to 10am and 1pm to 2pm


We Did

We included the residents’ parking scheme as a proposal in a Traffic Regulation Order which was open for comment in February and March 2019.

The Committee approved the order in June 2019. The scheme is now active, and this area has become parking Zone P. 

Apply for a permit in parking Zone P.

We Asked

Residents told us about parking issues in South Portslade, so in September 2019 we asked what they thought about having a resident parking scheme in the area.

Those who said they support a resident parking scheme were asked whether they would prefer a light-touch scheme or a full scheme.

You Said

60.5% of respondents support the idea of a resident parking scheme in the area based on a 36% response rate.

56.6% of respondents wanted a light touch scheme (11am to midday and from 6pm to 7pm). 

43.4% preferred a full scheme (9am to 8pm).

54.5% of respondents supported a Monday to Friday scheme while 45.6% supported a Monday to Sunday scheme.

We Did

We presented the results to the Environment, Transport and Sustainability Committee on 21 January 2020.

The committee decided to consult the whole area again about a light-touch scheme in June 2020, so residents can make a decision after seeing the detailed design of the scheme.
