Parking zone changes due

RESIDENTS' parking came to Redland and Cotham ward in summer 2014. This caused lots of controversy at the time but since then little debate in the streets where it is in place.

RESIDENTS' parking came to Redland and Cotham ward in summer 2014. This caused lots of controversy at the time but since then little debate in the streets where it is in place.  

The follow-up six-month review was completed early in 2015. This led to proposals for revisions to the scheme plus extensions on either side of Redland Road. A permit system for users of the local allotments was also promisedo. 

Redland Councillor Martin Fodor said: “There have been many issues around the changes and extensions, but the news now is that despite delays to the build of the new facilities the scheme should finally have gone live on August 14. We shall keep a close watch on everything until it settles down and do get in touch if there are teething problems or issues that you can’t get answers to from the council.”

 Martin has asked the Mayor for a promise of action to people in streets where most residents want something done about commuter parking, such as those on either side of Gloucester Road.
