Rustat Road needs to be considered for Parking Controls

The County Council has asked Councillors if there are any areas of their ward that should be considered for consultation about parking controls. I have long been concerned about the current problems, and the effects of new developments on the Rustat Road area, and think residents should have the opportunity to consider introducing on street controls. This is my response to the County Council:

"I would like the Rustat Road area (to cover areas affected by station commuter parking) to be considered for controlled parking consultations and restrictions.

This does however need to be considered in the context of the redevelopment of the station area and the former water company site, and the prospective timing of these developments needs to be considered to help determine when is the most appropriate time to consult residents.

Finally, I would like to request that any consideration of parking controls looks at a wide variety of possible parking controls, for example parking restriction for small periods of the morning to reduce commuter parking as well as more traditional resident's parking."
