Strood CPZ Consultation

Thursday, 22 June 2017

 

During the winter of 2016, we carried out a survey to see if there were parking problems in the area.  The majority of responses identified issues with parking and suggested we think about more parking controls.

 

We then put together proposals for a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) in Strood North and asked residents and local businesses to tell us what they thought. Of the 447 people who responded to the consultation, the majority felt that more parking controls during the day were not needed. However, there was support for some restrictions during the evening when most people are at home. The Council has therefore decided to ask residents of their opinion on a Controlled Parking Zone that only applies to the evening/overnight period.

 

We have two options that we would like you to consider:

 

Option 1 - An evening/night-time CPZ (in addition to existing daytime CPZs where they are in operation) to control the number of vehicles able to park within the area when demand is high.

 

Option 2 - Medway Council will not implement new residential parking controls in the area, and the parking situation will remain as it is now. This will mean that the Council will not review residential parking in Strood North for at least the next 5 years.

 

Information on the two proposed options, including permit costs, permit types, potential hours of operation and limited permit sales, can be found here:

 

If you would like to take part in this consultation, please complete the questionnaire that was sent to you and return it to us no later than Friday, 14 July 2017. Once the consultation has finished we will review all submissions before making a decision on the implementation of a CPZ.

 

If you have any questions please email the Integrated Transport Service at parkingdesign@medway.gov.uk, or phone Medway Council on 01634 333333.
