Harrow Court - Resident Permit Parking

Closed 23 Nov 2018

Opened 1 Nov 2018

Overview

We have been asked to consider the introduction of an on-street Residents Permit Parking scheme in Harrow Court, due to parking pressures in this area of Reading.

We have conducted two informal consultations in Harrow Court this year. The first one in January provided residents with information about the Council’s resident permit parking scheme. The second took place in July and suggested a ‘shared use’ permit bay design, which would allow vehicles to park in marked bays for 2 hours without displaying a permit. The results of these informal consultations demonstrated that there was majority support for a permit scheme in Harrow Court, with a preference for a ‘permit holders only’ restriction.  

Following the approval of the Traffic Management Sub-Committee, we are now conducting a legal statutory consultation on a proposal for a ‘permit holder parking only past this point’ restriction in Harrow Court. This restriction would involve the removal of all existing parking restriction signing and lining, except existing double-yellow and any centre lines (any existing bay markings would be removed) and there would simply be signs at the entrance to Harrow Court stating the restriction. This restriction would require all parked vehicles to have a resident parking permit.

A copy of the advertised notice and a drawing of the proposal can be found at the bottom of this page. Comments, support or objections to the proposal can be submitted by completing the form on this page, emailing highway.objections@reading.gov.uk or by writing to C J Brooks, Head of Legal and Democratic Services, Reading Borough Council, Civic Offices, Bridge Street, Reading RG1 2LU by 23rd November 2018. 

The results of this consultation will be reported to the Traffic Management Sub-Committee in January 2019. The Sub-Committee will review any objections received and decide whether or not the proposals will be implemented.
