Statement of reasons

The Council proposes to update the existing Off-Street Parking Places Order for the following reasons:

  Amendment Reason
1 To introduce daily parking charges within Stoneleigh Parade car park To regulate and monitor activity within the car park, preventing its use for long stay parking and reducing the risk of the car parks use for abandoned vehicles and flytipping.
2 To introduce annual parking permits within the Stoneleigh Parade car park To provide a permit option to local residents and businesses as an alternative to the daily tariffs.
3 To remove the barriers from the Town Hall (rear) and Hope Lodge car parks. To offer parking to visitors via pay and display and/or a cashless parking service. To prevent the car park being out of service due to faults with the equipment. To reduce operational costs within the car park.
4 To introduce enforcement for electric vehicle charging bays. To support the introduction of electric vehicle charging bays by introducing enforcement for mis-use by drivers in non-electric vehicles and to restrict the permitted charging time to 4 hours.
