For years residents in roads east of Cholmeley Road in Newtown (which are not currently in the parking permit zone) have been having a problem parking, particularly at night time.
Earlier this year I delivered letters to residents asking if people were for or against these roads being included in the existing Newtown permit zone scheme. From responses so far, for which many thanks, the overwhelming majority are supportive of a shared zone permit scheme.
I am still receiving responses and would urge all residents to let me know their views as soon as possible. You can ring, email or post me a letter. My details are in the Contact Me section. I will update officers so this information can inform the Council’s future proposals.
I had a second meeting with officers this morning, together with Cllr Rob White, with officers preparing a proposed scheme which they will give us on 1st March.
I will give you an update thereafter.
