Public consultation for extended Lincoln resident parking zones

The City of Lincoln Council will consult residents over plans to significantly expand resident parking zones.

As previously reported, the city council’s executive committee is set to approve plans for new and expanded Residents Parking Scheme zones which see households pay £26 a year for their first permit and £52 for a second.

If over 50% of respondents to the consultation are in favour of the changes, the city council will work with the county council implement the scheme.

Residents parking schemes are place in 19 zones across Lincoln in areas where opportunities for residents to park outside their properties are limited.

Lincolnshire County Council would need to carry out a more detailed consultation with a range of potentially affected parties before a scheme can be put into place.

The city council would then operate the scheme with the county council’s contractor patrolling the areas and carrying out enforcement.

The proposal will be put before the council’s Executive on Monday, September 24, which will recommend the rollout of consultations on schemes in three phases.

The first two phases would focus on the uphill areas of the city, with the third phase aimed at the lower High Street and Sincil Bank areas.

The proposed first two phases of the scheme.

The roads to be included as new or existing zones in the first two phases are:

  • Union Road
  • Burton Road
  • Chestnut Street
  • Church Lane (north side only)
  • Newport
  • Northgate (north side only)
  • James Street
  • Bailgate

Portfolio Holder for Economic Growth, Councillor Neil Murray, said: “Residents’ Parking Schemes have many benefits, including improved parking opportunities for residents, a decrease in traffic congestion in the area and a reduction in noise from vehicles.

“Where the council has adopted Resident’s Parking Schemes before they have been well-received, and the majority of these newly proposed schemes would adjoin existing parking scheme areas.

“If this proposal is given approval by the council’s Executive, we will be consulting with residents and finding out if they would support such a scheme on their road.

“If more than 50 per cent of respondents to the consultation are in favour of the changes, we will then work with Lincolnshire County Council to bring a scheme to those areas.”
