We Asked, You Said, We Did

Below are some of the issues we have recently consulted on and their outcomes.

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'll include the proposal of the light-touch scheme in a traffic regulation order (TRO). We'll advertise this TRO in March 2020.

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, so residents can make a decision after seeing the detailed design of the scheme.

We Asked

After parking areas B and D were put in place in June 2013 we agreed to review both these areas.

The review was an opportunity for residents to have their say and let us know if they feel any changes are required to the parking schemes.

A small section of residents were not sent the consultation by mistake. We've contacted these residents and we're now waiting for the results from the responses. 

We'll update this page when we have the results.

You Said

Area B (Coldean area):

  • 296 residents responded out of the 1,186 addresses we sent questionnaires to
  • 78% are satisfied or very satisfied with the current area B parking scheme
  • 91.7% are happy for the scheme to remain the same

Area D (Moulsecoomb area):

  • 351 residents responded out of the 2,349 addresses we sent questionnaires to
  • 55.8% are satisfied or very satisfied with the current area D parking scheme
  • 70.5% are happy for the scheme to remain the same

We Did

Area B (Coldean area):

Based on the results of the consultation, there will be no changes made to area B.

Area D (Moulsecoomb area):

Although a small section wanted changes it was not practical to split the zone, so no changes will be made to area D.

We Asked

We reviewed the resident parking scheme in the Hanover and Elm Grove area (Zone S) at the end of 2018, after the scheme had been in place for over a year.

Residents in a small number of streets, known as the ‘top triangle,’ requested further consultation to find out if there’s enough support in the area to join Zone V.

Zone S is a light-touch scheme which is active Monday to Friday from 11am to midday and from 6pm to 7pm.

Zone V is a full scheme which is active Monday to Sunday from 9am to 8pm.

Top triangle streets include:

  • Arnold Street
  • Baxter Street
  • Carlyle Street
  • Cromwell Street
  • Lynton Street
  • part of Queens Park Road between Elm Grove and Carlyle Street

You Said

We received 174 valid responses, which is 44.7% of the total households in the proposed scheme area.

Overall, 51.1% support joining Zone V, but after we looked at the results from each street separately, it’s clear that residents in Queens Park Road would prefer to stay in Zone S. 

If we remove the results from Queens Park Road, the support for joining Zone V increases to 54%.

We Did

We included the proposed change from Zone S to Zone V for all streets except Queens Park Road in a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO). View the details of this TRO (TRO-31-2019).

No objections were received to the proposals so the committee agreed to make the changes. Zone S will become zone V in March 2020.

We Asked

Residents told us about parking issues in Freshfield Street and Queens Park Rise, so in July 2019 we asked whether they wanted to remain in Zone S or join Zone C.

Zone S is a light-touch scheme which is active Monday to Friday from 11am to midday and from 6pm to 7pm.

Zone C is a full scheme which is active Monday to Sunday from 9am to 8pm.

You Said

We received 59 valid responses which is over half (55.7%) of the total households in the proposed scheme area.

52.5% of respondents said they’re in favour of joining the full scheme (Zone C).

We Did

We included the proposed change from Zone S to Zone C in a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO). View the details of this TRO (TRO-31-2019) on our website. 

No objections were received to the proposals, so the committee agreed to make the changes. Zone S will become zone C in March 2020.
