Time running out to have your say on parking issues across the district

The city council is carrying out a consultation on parking restrictions

Canterbury City Council is currently consulting on parking across the district.

Every year its parking review considers requests from residents, city councillors and organisations for double yellow lines and other parking restrictions.

Cllr Ben Fitter-Harding, chairman of the council’s Regeneration and Property Committee, said: “These proposals could affect the availability of parking right outside people’s homes, so it’s one of the most important consultations we carry out each year.

“Many of the suggestions have come from individuals, so we need to know whether these ideas have wider support before they can be implemented. And a change in one location may have a knock-on effect elsewhere, so the full implications need to be considered.

“I would urge everyone to see if their road is affected and if it is, to make their views known. We want to get this right and the input of residents is vital.”
