North East Lincolnshire Council and its regeneration partner, ENGIE, are progressing the first stage of parking proposals, following an engagement survey in the main resort area last year.
Councillor Stewart Swinburn, portfolio holder for environment and transport, commented on the progress: “I would like to thank those residents who provided feedback last year and supported our traffic team in shaping a proposal and way forward.
“In the coming days, residents on a number of streets around St Peter’s Avenue will receive a letter asking for feedback and providing details of parking and traffic management proposals to create more residential parking, improve traffic flows and limit the opportunity for commuters and visitors to park.
“The responses received as part of the first survey highlighted a mixture of views, and it was clear that a resort wide scheme would not be feasible. Instead, a phased approach was supported by ward councillors and will be progressed by our regeneration partner, ENGIE.
“We appreciate residents not part of this first phase may be disappointed, but I would like to reassure everyone that we are progressing with this matter, in the most practical and efficient way, and we will be in contact with more residents as further phases are progressed.
“Parking schemes are required to follow a legal process and it does take time, so please persevere as we progress each stage and work to address the concerns raised across the resort.”
The streets receiving a letter as part of this first phase are:
- Charles Street
- Cosgrove Street
- Crow Hill Avenue
- Dolphin Street
- Fair View Avenue
- Glebe Road
- Kew Road
- Mill Place
- Mill Road
- West Street
To introduce these changes, the Traffic Regulation Order process will need to be followed for each phase. Details of the process are available at www.nelincs.gov.uk/traffic-regulation-orders.
