Residents to benefit from new permit parking scheme

Residents living in Brunswick Terrace in Stafford could benefit from a new parking scheme which is being considered.

The proposals could see a new permit only parking scheme being introduced and follows requests from local residents.  Permit parking spaces for residents would be available on the south-western side of Brunswick Terrace whilst on the opposite side there would be on-street pay and display parking.

The proposals would not only Make it easier for residents to park nearer to their homes but would also improve general road safety, reduce congestion and make it easier for emergency and other essential vehicles to access the area.

Helen Fisher, Cabinet Support member for Highways and Transport at Staffordshire County Council said:

“We’ve been working with the local community for a number of years now, after they asked us to look at the possibility of introducing a scheme because they were finding it difficult to park near their properties.

Helen added:

“Permit parking schemes can be an effective way of improving parking and reducing congestion in our town centres especially where there is a high demand for parking.  These proposals would not only improve parking for residents but could also help to Reduce traffic movements and air pollution too.  These are only proposals at this stage and I would encourage people to let us know what they think.”

People can have their say on the proposals until 8 April 2018 by emailing clear.streets@staffordshire.gov.uk or by writing to Staffordshire County Council at Tipping Street, Stafford.
