Beresford Avenue Parking Re-consultation

Closed 1 May 2022

Opened 21 Mar 2022

Overview

You may recall that in 2019 we carried out a parking consultation in this area. This consultation was commenced primarily in relation to the possible impact on parking that the new Lidl superstore and Deer Park School in Richmond Road could bring to the area.

The results of the consultation showed support to extend the CPZ’s operational hours and days in most roads near to the development. The results also showed support for the CPZ to be extended to Park Road (uncontrolled section) but not to Beresford Avenue. However, there was also some uncertainty around the impact of the school and store, which had not opened at that time. Following consideration of these results, it was decided not to make any immediate changes to the CPZ’s operational hours/days or extent, but to re-consider this once the store and school had become fully operational.

Parking beat surveys have been carried out by the Council’s consultant before and after the store and school were opened and these show some increase in parking demand.

In addition, you may be aware of the public realm improvements being progressed for the Richmond Road shopping area this year. These will result in a net reduction of eleven pay and display spaces which may have some impact on parking by non-residents outside the CPZ operational times. This factor needs to be considered in any decision to increase the operational hours/days in the CPZ.

We are now re-consulting you, the residents of Beresford Avenue, on whether you would like to join the CPZ. If this road joined the CPZ, this would be in the form of a Parking Permit Area which involves less signage (fewer or no additional yellow lines) as this road is a no through road. Irrespective of the outcome of this consultation, we will be progressing with adding the remaining uncontrolled part of Park Road to the CPZ - see map here.

We are also re-consulting residents and businesses of existing Zone F on whether they think its operational hours/days should be changed/extended.  The current operational hours/days for the CPZ are 10am to 4.30pm, Monday to Friday which are in Tier 2 (shown below).  The table below indicates current permit costs from 1 April 2022 and how these could alter if the CPZ operational hours/days were changed:

Tier Operational Hours Operational Days Annual Residents' Permit Charge Annual Business Permit Charge
1 4hrs or less Mon - Fri/Sat/Sun £55.20 £176.40
2 Between 4hrs and 10.5hrs Mon - Fri/Sat £93.90 £298.10
Between 4hrs and 6.5hrs Mon - Sun £93.90 £298.10
3 More than 6.5hrs Mon - Sun £124.00 £397.10
More than 10.5hrs Mon - Fri/Sat/Sun £124.00 £397.10

 

Resident and Business permits

The resident and business permit prices shown are for the 1st permit issued per household/business, for one year.  Subsequent permits purchased per year are approximately 50% more for the 2nd permit and 50% more again for the 3rd permit issued.

Resident visitor permits

Resident visitor permits (scratch cards) are available at half the standard price to the over 60s. These permits must be validated for the relevant time period.

What happens next?

The Council would like to demonstrate that any extension to the CPZ have the support of residents so a good response is very important, although the Council will not base its decision on residents’ wishes alone. All feedback to this consultation will be considered by the Council along with all relevant traffic management and other highway factors, prior to a decision being made on the way forward.
