Following initial engagement with Cleethorpes residents, businesses and ward councillors last year on a possible permit parking scheme with some added limited waiting restrictions, highway officials are continuing to look at a possible scheme based on the feedback received.
Residents have made a number of requests for the introduction of standalone resident parking schemes in response to concerns of increasing parking pressures from local shoppers, tourists and commuters using residential roads for long periods of time. This has prompted highway officials to look at the feasibility of a wider parking scheme covering multiple streets.
Councillor Stewart Swinburn, portfolio holder for environment and transport, said: “We understand the frustration and eagerness of residents in wanting to see this issue resolved and the council and ENGIE remain committed to looking at a solution that balances the needs of all residents and businesses in the area.
“The traffic regulation process does take time and is a very engagement-based and intensive process. Following the survey last year, officials are continuing to review the feedback with ward councillors. In the coming months, we will move to the next stage of the process and be engaging on possible parking measures in the resort.
“At this time, no firm decision has been made but we will continue to keep those affected updated as the scheme develops. This is a legal and lengthy process, but I would like to assure those calling for the scheme that we are acting on feedback and working to develop a solution.”
