Exeter residents’ parking

2016 Statutory Consultation

The information on this page relates to the statutory consultation that ran from 26 May until 17 June 2016 and the restrictions that were implemented. For information on the current proposals please see Exeter residents’ parking.

This consultation was held in response to requests from local residents who are affected by commuter parking and the proposals aim to prevent displacement to other areas. These proposals have been drafted following discussions with local county councillors and the Chair of the Highway and Traffic Orders Committee.

The intention of the scheme is to ensure that residents have priority over parking within their area, while also ensuring that local needs are taken into account, for instance, that local schools, businesses and other employment hubs are not unfairly disadvantaged.

In 2015 a number of public consultations were held to gauge the views of local residents. These views were considered by the Exeter Highways and Traffic Orders Committee on 19 April 2016 where the committee gave their approval to progress proposals to the next stage.

The revised proposals were formally advertised from 26 May until 17 June 2016 which allowed members of the public to submit their comments. The responses to the statutory consultation have been considered and the Exeter Highways and Traffic Orders Committee on 12 July 2016 decided which roads and restrictions will be included/excluded.

Details of what has been agreed for each scheme can be found below.

What happens next?

The work has been commissioned and the restrictions will come into force on 13 February 2017. Plans showing the restrictions being implemented are available below:
