Why are we consulting?
We would like your views on our plans, to ensure that we make the most appropriate changes to parking in your streets.
What we are consulting on
We are asking for your views on the following:
- whether you are in favour of a Residents’ Parking Zone in Lyncombe (including the proposals for business related parking)
- the proposed operating hours of the parking restrictions
- any other comments you have on the proposals
To help us get a better understanding of the local parking situation, we would also like to find out about current parking needs and availability:
- how much off-street parking is available to residents
- how many vehicles residents keep at their address
Who we are consulting
We are inviting local residents and businesses to give us their views on the proposals that will affect them the most. However, anyone is welcome to respond to this consultation and share their views.
How to respond to the consultation
To take part and give your views on our proposals, complete our online questionnaire. This should take no more than 5 minutes of your time.
What happens next
This consultation will be open until Monday 19 April 2021. After it has closed, we'll publish the results on our website.
We'll use your responses to decide whether or not we should proceed to the next stage of consultation. If we do decide to go ahead, your responses will also help shape the layout of the proposed parking restrictions.
The next stage involves advertising a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO). This is the legal means for us to implement and enforce parking restrictions. Notices would be displayed in all roads affected by the proposals, to make people aware of the possible changes, and to give them the opportunity to comment.
We will write to residents and businesses again to let you know the outcome of this first stage of consultation.

We will shortly be consulting with the public on proposals for parking permits which are aimed at improving air quality, and reducing the impact of traffic on the local highway network. These include vehicle emissions-based charging for residents' permits (so the cost of your permit would depend on how much air pollution your vehicle causes).
