The city council is carrying out a consultation on parking restrictions

Roads across the Canterbury district are poised to get new single and double yellow lines under plans put forward by the city council.

The authority is carrying out a public consultation on proposals which also include the introduction of pavement parking bans and other parking restrictions.

It forms the council’s Annual Parking Review which is drawn up from requests for changes to parking from residents, councillors and groups such as residents’ associations.

Cllr Ben Fitter-Harding, chairman of the council’s regeneration and property committee, said: “The Annual Parking Review is one of our most important consultations of the year and affects a large number of roads in the district. 

A proposed solution in one road may have a knock-on effect further down the road or in another street, so it’s really important to hear the views of the wider community before we make any changes. 

“As always, we’d urge people to take a look at the proposals and let us know what they think before the Friday, February 15 deadline.”

Any objections received will be reported to the Canterbury, Herne Bay and Whitstable forums and the joint transportation board – all of which meet in March.

All the proposals and a questionnaire to supply views are on the council’s dedicated consultation webpage. Paper copies of each proposal can be requested by calling 01227 862059.

  1. Why remove off peak parking on single yellow lines by replacing them with doubles? Who does that help? It makes it more difficult for visitors to the affected areas. Maybe just CCC benefits? Apart from that CCC has no facility to enforce double yellow lines in the evening.

    An ex councillor told me that when he parked on double yellow lines opposite the Westgate Hall. For years cars have been parked on double yellow lines in the evening in the passing bays of Palace Street seemingly without fines.

    So CCC don’t impose what you have no intention of enforcing. I wonder if a CCC spokesperson will reply?
