Uttlesford to consult on car parking in district

RESIDENTS and businesses across Uttlesford are to be asked for their views on car parking in the district.

Uttlesford District Council’s Scrutiny Committee has set up a working group after deciding to look into its current parking arrangements.

And as part of its work the group has drawn up two separate questionnaires which it is urging residents and businesses to fill in.

Responses will be fed into a report the group will present to the Scrutiny Committee, which can recommend changes to the council’s cabinet on or off-street parking arrangements.

Cllr Iris Evans, who chairs the car parking task group, said: “This is a chance for residents and businesses to have their say about their experiences of using our car parks.

“We want to know what people think about how well the car parks are maintained, whether there are enough parking places, the level of fees, ways of paying and residents’ parking schemes.

“I urge residents and businesses to fill in the questionnaires so that we can gather as much information as possible in order to improve car parking provision in Uttlesford.”
