Residents Parking Scheme Changes pdf icon PDF 155 KB

The purpose of the report by the Director of Regeneration is to recommend ways of improving the residents' parking scheme to

·         encourage  the use of cars with lower emissions

·         encourage car sharing

·         reduce the potential impact of student halls of residence on parking in the local area

·         make it easier for residents living  near Residents Parking Zone (RPZ) boundaries to find parking and to reduce displacement

 

RECOMMENDED

(1)  That the following variations to the Portsmouth City Council (Various Roads) Residents Parking Places) (No. 9) Consolidation Order 2016 are advertised and any objections considered at a future Traffic and Transport Decision meeting:

 

      (i)         The procedure for issuing permits is changed to allow car sharing between people living in different zones by allowing the same vehicle to be issued with permits for two zones as described in paragraphs 4.3 to 4.5

 

      (ii)        The eligibility for permits is changed to exclude student halls of residence as described in paragraphs 4.6 to 4.10.

 

(2)  That the following variations to the charge for the issue of parking permits be advertised under the statutory notice procedure:  

 

      (i)         The charges for residents permits are changed, as described in paragraph 4.11 to 4.16, so the first permit for a household will be free if the vehicle is powered solely by electricity and that the charge for a first permit is reduced by 50% to £15 if the vehicle emits less than 100g of CO2 per Km provided (a) it is not powered by a diesel internal combustion engine and (b) that it was registered after 1 March 2001.

 

      (ii)        The cost of a third resident's permit to be reduced from £590 to £300 as described in paragraphs 4.17 and 4.18.
