Have your say on proposed new parking schemes

A 28 day period for comment on phase one of the council’s proposed new parking schemes is open until 6 June 2017.

Comments can be submitted to consultation@thanet.gov.uk. These comments will be presented to the council’s Joint Transportation Board at their next meeting, currently scheduled for 22 June 2017.

A formal statutory consultation on the proposed phase one scheme will then take place and the feedback will be considered before a final decision by Cabinet is made.

More information on the proposed new parking schemes

A series of new parking schemes are being proposed to help generate more income for the council and to positively impact parking issues in the district.

The proposed changes are to the five off-street car parking areas in the district that are currently free of charge, and a number of on-street parking areas around the district which are also currently free of charge.

The changes, which would be implemented in three phases, include:

  • Off-street parking areas changing to pay and display
  • On-street parking areas changing to pay and display, a resident’s scheme, or a mixture of both

These proposals, which include marking out parking bays in priority areas, will also help address the issues of inconsiderate parking for residents, improve pedestrian safety and encourage traffic flow. The proposals will allow disabled badge holders to park within any pay and display bay by using their blue badge.

More information can be found in the full report.

The location and phase of these changes is detailed in the table below:
