Exeter residents’ parking

2017 Consultations

The information on this page relates to the informal consultation that was held between 23 March and 23 April 2017 in response to the requests from members of the public, to review the new restrictions that were implemented during the first quarter of 2017.

Background

In May, June and December 2015 and January 2016, several consultation events were held to gauge the views of residents on the introduction of Residents Parking Zones in the Regents Park (S2), Newtown (C), Elizabeth Avenue (S6), Rifford Road (S7), Bovemoors Lane (N) and Burnthouse Lane (S8), areas of Exeter.

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

The results of the consultations were reported to the Exeter Highways and Traffic Orders Committee (HATOC) at its meeting on the 19 April 2016 where it was decided to formally consult on amended proposals.

The results of the formal consultation were reported to the HATOC at its meeting on 12 July 2016. The Committee resolved to introduce a number of new Resident’s Parking Zones and associated restrictions. The new restrictions were implemented during January/February 2017.

Responding to the concerns of residents experiencing difficulty in parking following the introduction of parking restrictions in nearby streets, Devon County Council has undertaken an additional consultation to decide whether to extend the restrictions further. The proposals are similar to those advertised in 2016 and have been drafted following discussion with local county councillors.

The results of the additional consultation were presented to the HATOC at its meeting on 4 July 2017. Minutes of the meeting can be viewed at the following link http://democracy.devon.gov.uk/ieListDocuments.aspx?CId=168&MId=2144&Ver=4 (Item 13)

Details of the changes are listed below.
