In February a survey form was delivered to all 500 homes in the area, asking several questions including parking. 66 forms were returned, a 13% response rate - by far the largest participation in any “vote” organised by the residents’ association.

The basic results were as follows:

  • Support for a Controlled Parking Zone – Yes: 49, No: 12, No preference: 5
  • Support for possible road closures – Yes: 32, No: 24, No preference: 10
  • Concern about recent planning applications – Yes 27: No 18: No preference: 9

The fourth question asked residents to state any other concerns.

Most replies were in the related areas of rubbish dumping, litter, rubbish collection and street cleaning.

As promised there will now be a public meeting open to all local residents to discuss these issues.

Local councillors, council officers, the police etc will also be invited.
