North East Lincolnshire Council and its regeneration partner, ENGIE, are calling on residents of Cleethorpes to have their say on a potential controlled parking zone (CPZ) in the main resort area.
Local residents received a letter in early September providing an opportunity to have their say on the issue, with a web link to access the survey.
Residents have made a number of requests for the introduction of a resident parking scheme in response to concerns of increasing parking pressures from local shoppers, tourists and commuters using residential roads for long periods of time.
A CPZ permits local authorities to put restrictions in place to allow residents to be able to park closer to their properties, unaffected by shoppers, tourists and commuters.
Councillor Stewart Swinburn, portfolio holder for environment and transport, said: “We appreciate the frustration of local residents unable to park close to their home and have started the process to be able to support them with the issue.
“It is key that as many effected residents as possible complete the survey so Highway Officers can fully understand their views and develop the best possible option.”
“We have extended the survey, so please take the opportunity to share your views. I remain committed to working with local residents and the officers involved to help develop a solution to this issue. Local residents should be able to park close to their homes without unnecessary disruption.”
The following links allow access to the survey dependent on the type of area:
- No current parking scheme in place: https://cleecpzintro.questionpro.eu
- Part of an existing permit scheme: https://cleecpzexisting.questionpro.eu
Please only complete the survey if you received the initial letter.
If you are unable to access the online survey or require a paper copy please contact the Traffic Team on (01472) 32 6300 (Option 2 for Roads, Footpaths and Drains) or email [email protected].
Further details about the CPZ will be shared as the scheme progresses and further consultation and engagement is required.
