Car parking strategy

Residents parking

With increasing car ownership there are often too many cars to enable residents to park outside of their own homes. Whilst residents have no right to this, it is considered reasonable that residents can park outside near their home for increased security and accessibility.

The county council is responsible for on-street parking and the management of resident parking zones.

We currently operate a resident parking permit scheme in Silverdale Road, this is a historic scheme relating back to when residents lost their access to front of house parking. It is proposed that this limited scheme continues, with charging set annually as part of the fees and charges process.
