Why are you raising parking issues again?
The last formal consultation was held by the Council in summer 2015. Since then a lot has changed. New small parking zones have been implemented at Fiveways and Balfour and by Brighton Racecourse. A lot of long-stay parking has been diverted from those streets to our area. Our streets are now one of the last parts of inner Brighton with free parking, and we’re becoming 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.
