West Chesterton Parking update - 2019-11-28

166.png
I'm very aware that I've not provided an update recently on the potential introduction of a residents parking scheme in West Chesterton.  This blog attempts to address this.
Due to numerous issues, including general workloads, and some other consultations that have overrun, the next formal step will be the County Council writing to residents in the Ascham Parking Area asking for their consent to expand their scheme to include the Chesterton Triangle and the Hurst Park Estate (inc those parts of Arbury road that are in the Chesterton County Division).
The area this scheme would encompass is shown approximately here.
At the moment, the best information I have is that this will not happen until early January.  Read on for some questions that I've been asked about this recently with answers.

This has also impacted on the timescale for this planning phase.  More details when we have them.

I've attempted to summarise what is being discussed in this blog post - this is very high level and brief.
