Why are you raising parking issues again?
Before 2017, the most recent formal consultation was held by the Council in summer 2015. Since 2015 a lot has changed. New small parking zones were implemented at Fiveways and Balfour and by Brighton Racecourse. A lot of long-stay parking was diverted from those streets to our area. Our streets became one of the last parts of inner Brighton with free parking, and for a time we became everybody else’s free car park.
Our petitions show that unlike summer 2015 when a relatively small number of households in most streets voted, now the majority of residents in area support the need for parking controls. Our opinion poll suggests why this is.
