The Panel considered a report of the Head of Environment and Regulation to propose the introduction of a residents parking scheme for roads to the rear of the Floral Pavilion, New Brighton.
An objection had been received relating to insufficient parking for residents of the affected roads. The objector had stated that within these roads if each household had a car there would be more cars than parking spaces. In addition the objector asked that the two car parks by the roundabout on Victoria Road be included within the scheme.
Issues raised by the objector had been addressed in writing and were outlined in paragraph 2.6 of the report.
A written representation had been received, prior to the meeting in support of the proposed scheme by Councillor Pat Hackett, Ward Councillor.
Mr D Kirk, Principal Assistant Engineer outlined the report and responded to questions from Members of the Panel.
Mrs J McAlpine, local resident made representations to the Panel in objection to the proposed scheme. Clarification was sought as to whether the two car parks by the roundabout on Victoria Road shall be included in the scheme, or whether it would be the case that parking fines would now be issued for those wishing to park in those car parks for longer than two hours.
Officers confirmed that the two existing car parks are unrestricted and cater for a wider use from other residential roads outside the proposed resident parking area together with shops, restaurants and local businesses situated on Victoria Road. A car parking fine would not be issued for those wishing to park there for a longer period than two hours.
Councillor Pat Hackett addressed the Panel on behalf of local residents who had expressed their support for the proposed scheme.
Officers responded to further questions from Members.
Members considered all representations made orally and in writing.
Resolved – That:
Panel note the objection and that the proposed scheme to introduce a resident parking scheme be recommended to the Regeneration & Environment Policy and Performance Committee for approval and implementation.
Resolved – That consideration of this item be deferred due to the Highways Authority having received additional representations.
