Hospital & university area: pay and display charging and minor changes

Closes 8 Jun 2018

Opened 17 May 2018

Overview

A parking scheme was implemented around the Hospital & University area in early 2017, consisting of Resident Permit and Pay & Display restrictions, in addition to localised yellow-line restrictions. A scheme update was reported to the Sub-Committee at its September 2017 meeting with the agreed recommendation that Officers conduct a statutory consultation on expanding the Pay and Display restrictions to include the weekends also. Officers and Redlands Ward Councillors have received feedback from residents and organisations within the parking scheme area and met to consider minor alterations that could be proposed. The proposals predominantly include changing the no-waiting times for single-yellow-line restrictions at locations where parking would not be considered appropriate.

Statutory consultations for these elements have been combined into a single statutory (legal) 21 day consultation. Responses will be reported to the Council’s Traffic Management Sub-Committee at their meeting in September 2018. Members will consider these responses and decide whether to implement, amend or not pursue the implementation of these proposed changes.

Objections to the proposals, together with the grounds on which they are made, should be sent in writing quoting ref: CMS/9250 by no later than 8th June 2018. If you wish to send objections by e-mail please send them to highway.objections@reading.gov.uk You may also submit statements of support for these proposed alterations.
