People living around Hove Park are being asked whether they want a controlled parking zone.
Brighton and Hove City Council said: “Residents and businesses in the streets around Hove Park can now comment on proposals to create a new residents’ parking zone for the area.
“The proposed ‘light touch’ zone would operate for two restricted hours Monday to Friday, from 9am to 10am and 1pm to 2pm.
“The council has sent leaflets to more than 1,000 households following initial consultation last year.
”Of those who responded 62 per cent said they wanted a scheme in the proposed area, with 76 per cent expressing a preference for ‘light touch’ and 70 per cent saying they would prefer it to operate on weekdays only.”
Councillor Gill Mitchell, who chairs the council’s Environment, Transport and Sustainability Committee, said: “The council has been receiving numerous complaints from residents in the Hove Park area about parking problems and we hope as many as possible will take part in the consultation.
“The proposed scheme aims to improve safety, traffic flow and access as well as making it easier for residents to park.
”If the scheme goes ahead, we will also look at measures to alleviate any displacement parking in surrounding areas.”
The deadline to respond is Monday 28 May at www.brighton-hove.gov.uk/hoveparking.
