Significant changes to improve on-street parking in central Brighton will go before councillors at the Environment Committee on Wednesday 9 December.
The public will be invited to express their opinions on a set of proposals during a six-week informal consultation to take place early in the New Year. That will be followed by a further three-week statutory consultation.
A key component of the proposals will be of interest to city centre businesses. Business parking permits may be made available to businesses if they can prove the vehicle is essential to the running of their business.
Also of interest to traders is the proposed abolition of voucher parking. A Pay & Display system will be introduced with on-street dispensers. This is much more convenient for visitors and enables them to park on Sunday afternoons when the shops selling vouchers have closed.
Councillor Craig Turton, deputy chair of the committee and transport spokesman, says, "We intend to find solutions to on-street parking problems in central Brighton that will meet the needs of residents, businesses and residents' visitors. We need to tackle the inconsistencies of voucher parking, free bays, pricing and payment, boundaries of existing zones and the level of enforcement.
"We have a very detailed set of proposals to put before residents and businesses and we will be listening very carefully to what those who live and operate businesses in the area have to say.”
