Parking in Bedford Court

Closed 5 Aug 2018

Opened 10 Jul 2018


The Council has received a number of complaints from residents in Bedford Court concerned about inconsiderate parking. Those residents have asked the Council to look at introducing controls designed to address these parking issues.

Residents have told us that the parking area is being used by commuters during the day and for also by non-residents parking for long periods of time. It is reported that such parking is preventing residents from parking near to their homes, visitors and trades people parking in the area and has a detrimental impact on access for emergency service vehicles. 

The Council has decided to investigate these parking issues further by seeking the views of all residents. We want to find out what you think about parking and whether there is support for measures to improve parking.

Why We Are Consulting

Although we have already been contacted by some residents, we want to give everyone in Bedford Court the opportunity to tell us their views on parking.

Even if you have already contacted us previously, or have taken part in any other consultations, please take a few minutes to let us know whether there are any parking problems and if you think that parking controls are necessary.

The more responses that we receive, the more representative this consultation will be.

What Happens Next

We will review all the responses received and this information will help us make a decision on whether to proceed with parking controls or not.
