Dozens of streets in Brighton and Hove are to be included in controlled parking zones after a town hall meeting this week.
Councillors have included roads in Baker’s Bottom and the Lewes Road Triangle, in Brighton, and more roads in Wish ward in Hove. The Lewes Road Triangle scheme alone is likely to net the council a six-figure sum every year.
The decisions were made at a Brighton and Hove City Council meeting on Tuesday (7 October).
A report to members of the council’s Environment, Transport and Sustainability Committee said that the council had received requests for surveys and consultations with a view to extending controlled parking further.
They included people living north of Preston Drove, in the Hanover and Elm Grove area and north of Hove Park as well as a few people in South Portslade and East Brighton.
What do politicians think about the spread of the zones? Are they necessary or simply a way of raising extra revenue?
Three local politicians had their say on The Vote on Latest TV – Jeremy Gale, the Liberal Democrat candidate in Central Hove at the next local elections, Councillor Gill Mitchell, deputy leader of the council’s opposition Labour group, and Councillor Ian Davey, deputy leader of the council and Green transport lead.
