A SURVEY, asking opinions about the city-wide roll-out of a residents' parking scheme, has revealed that 80 percent of people believe that the council has not listened to their concerns.
Over 4,000 people have responded to the questionnaire, launched by Clifton businessman Mark Moran.
Other statistics gathered from the survey include 87.4% think a cheap, efficient public transport system should be in place before the introduction of RPZs, 77.7% think business will close as a result and 78.7% would support reversal of existing and cancellation of new schemes.
Leaflets have been distributed across the city, calling on people to fill out the online survey, and to have their say - regardless of whether they support the controversial scheme, or not.
Mr Moran argues that people have not been properly consulted about the scheme, and that mayor George Ferguson is carrying on regardless.
An online petition, which has received almost 1,200 signatures, has also been launched by Mr Moran calling for the reversal of schemes already in place.
The residents' parking scheme was introduced into Redland last July. A review will be held by the council in January to gauge people's opinions, living both inside the zone and in the surrounding streets.
