Deadline for East Reading permit parking consultation is approaching…

Residents' parking sign s

The council is now conducting a final consultation on permit parking for your road and area – and the deadline of Thursday, December 20 is approaching.

Your Green Party councillors have been working with residents and transport planners to create a scheme which helps tackle parking congestion and improves road safety.

Following the previous rounds of consultation council transport planners have considered peoples’ views and produced a final version of the permit parking scheme designs. The consultation on the final designs is now live – this is the legally required consultation for the Traffic Regulation Order.

The consultation and design can be found here. Please respond saying if you are in support of or against the scheme:

The deadline for responses is Thursday, December 20.

The results of this final consultation will go to the Traffic Committee on Thursday, January 10. Councillors will then vote on whether to proceed or not. If the scheme gets the go-ahead the council will start writing to residents about applying for permits and lining and signing the scheme. This would mean that the scheme would go live in the spring/summer 2019.

We care about the area and will keep working with you to improve it.
