Central Bedfordshire Council will be consulting on parking, and this will be open for feedback from today (29th March 2017) until the 16th June 2017.

As I’m sure you know parking is an important issue when considering transport topics. Central Bedfordshire households have a higher than average number of cars or vans, all of which need parking. A well planned and managed approach to parking can have a positive impact on local businesses and people’s quality of life. However, there is a challenge - often there are more vehicles than spaces to park, which causes problems.

The Council is proposing to introduce a new set of policies that set out a framework for how it will provide for, manage and make decisions about parking for residents, shoppers and commuters.

 The results of the consultation will help to inform a draft Parking Strategy. When this is adopted, feedback from local area assessments in key towns will be used to understand if there are any areas in Central Bedfordshire where parking needs to be improved, at which point there will be further public consultation.
