The county council is making a fresh bid to seek people’s views on a proposed residents’ parking scheme in some parts of Hinckley.
The council says the scheme addresses long-held concerns voiced by local residents over the lack of designated parking spaces.
Plans have been developed which, if agreed, will enable residents with a valid permit to park within a proposed parking zone.
The proposals were initially announced last year, but there was a low response rate which didn’t give the council a clear indication on whether there is support for the scheme or not.
The council has now decided to contact residents, who did not send in responses the first time around, to seek their views.
Letters have been delivered to people in properties who didn’t respond to a formal consultation in September 2020.
The proposed permit zone includes Hill Street, Hurst Road, Mount Road, Orchard Street, Priesthills Road, Princess Road, Queens Road, Springfield Road, The Lawns, Thornfield Way and Thornycroft Road.
This will be the final occasion on which we consult on the proposed residents parking scheme so I would encourage people to get in touch so we can fully understand their views before deciding on the next stepsPerson:Councillor Ozzy O'Shea, county council cabinet member for highways and transport
