New parking schemes and consultations

Proposed Extension of Callowland Zone NA boundary – Leggatts Ward Roads + Diamond & Jubilee Roads

The council is committed to reviewing the surrounding streets to the north west of Zone NA due to residents’ concerns about the impact of Zone NA on parking in other roads.  This is separate to the review into operational hours. We have undertaken parking surveys prior to and post Callowland Zone NA PPA being implemented in order to understand whether the new zone has affected parking availability in the following roads:

•    Ashby Road
•    Brighton Road
•    Diamond Road
•    Gammons Lane 
•    Jubilee Road
•    Sussex Road

Has Zone NA Permit Parking Area affected parking on the surrounding roads in Leggatts Ward and Diamond & Jubilee Roads?

Survey results suggest that although there is some evidence of parking migration, it is only low level and is not affecting parking availability in the area during daytime hours. 
The other major conclusion from the survey data is that all the roads surveyed have occupancy levels exceeding 100% capacity during evening and night time hours. It also found that in Diamond Road, Jubilee Road and Gammons Lane occupancy levels exceeded 100% during daytime hours.



Informal Consultation

With this in mind officers have agreed with The Mayor, Portfolio Holder and your ward councillors to offer residents of these roads a further consultation about joining the Zone NA Permit Parking Area. This consultation will take place at the same time as the consultation on operational hours of Zone NA with properties already within the zone. 

The consultation will go live on Monday 11th October by means of a letter, questionnaire and proposal plan posted to all properties within Zone NA. The consultation will end noon on Sunday 7th November when all questionnaires must be returned via the stamped addressed envelopes provided.

Copies of the letter, questionnaire and proposal plan to be sent out can be found via the following links;




If we opt into being part of Zone NA, what will the operational hours of the zone be?

Should a majority of residents within your area vote to join the PPA, then this would be according to the operational hours voted for by a majority of existing residents and businesses within the zone.
