Monks Road area residents parking
In November 2018, residents were asked if they would support the introduction of a residents parking scheme in their area. This consultation was held in response to requests from local residents who are affected by commuter parking and the introduction of residents parking in surrounding areas.
The results of the 2018 consultation were presented to the Exeter Highways and Traffic Orders Committee on 9 April 2019. The results indicated that residents were in favour of the introduction of a residents parking scheme, therefore we are proceeding to formally advertise the proposals from 23 May 2019 until 14 June 2019 in a statutory consultation.
The proposals aim to prevent displacement parking to other areas. These proposals have been drafted following discussions with the local county councillor 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 businesses and other employment hubs are not unfairly disadvantaged.
The consultation on the proposals ran from 23 May until 14 June.
The responses were considered by the Exeter Highways and Traffic Orders Committee on 9 July 2019 where a decision was made to implement the residents parking scheme to a few small modifications.
What happens next?
Officers are currently working on the implementation of the residents parking scheme. Letters will be sent to all residents, with details on when the scheme will go live and details of how to apply for permits.
