Ladywell controlled parking zone

As everyone in Ladywell should now know the council is considering introducing a controlled parking zone (CPZ) in Ladywell. The CPZ would appear to have some people strongly in favour and others strongly opposed.
The council have promised that they will listen to the views of the people expressed in the consultation period so it is essential that whatever your view you return the consultation form to ensure your voice is heard.
LVIG believes that if the CPZ is introduced then it would make sense to introduce at least four free short stay parking spaces near to the shops at the southern end of Algernon road so as to allow people to park and use the shops in Ladywell. LVIG sees this as essential to support local shop keepers.
For more information on the CPZ and the consultation please visit this link where you can download the consultation document.
At the most basic level the important details are:
  1. The CPZ is slated to operate from 9am-7pm on weekdays.
  2. Residents who wish to park their car in the area must purchase a permit; these are slated to cost £60 per year.
  3. Visitor permits will be available at a cost of £1.70 per half day, £2.80 per full day and £8 per week.
  4. Pay and display parking will be priced at £1 per hour.
  5. There will be disabled bays which anyone with a blue badge can use for free.
  6. The council is considering having some bays for cars from the street car car club in the CPZ.
