Topsham Residents’ Parking – Phase 2
Devon County Council is consulting on whether residents in Topsham would support an extension of residents’ parking within Topsham in their area.
Following a statutory consultation in 2018, the T1 residents parking zone was introduced in an area to the south west of the town. The current residents parking restrictions came into effect during March 2020.
Devon County Council now wishes to consult the areas of Topsham which were previously consulted but are not included in the current residents parking zone to assess the potential for further residents parking restrictions.
The intention of a residents’ parking scheme is to ensure that residents have priority to park within their own area, while also ensuring that the needs of other road users are recognised.
The consultation is running from 27 August 2021 until 10 September 2021. More information about residents’ parking schemes and the area being consulted can be found below, as well as the submission form for any comments as part of the consultation.
Some more information about residents’ parking schemes can be found in the consultation handout document.
The informal consultation has now closed and all comments submitted will now be summarised and will be considered by the Exeter Highway and Traffic Orders Committee (HATOC). Following the Exeter HATOC, a decision will be made on whether to progress with residents’ parking in the area. A further consultation with detailed proposals for any approved restrictions will be undertaken before any final decision is made.
