Decision details

Petition Update - Kendrick Court inclusion in Resident Permit Parking scheme

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Further to Minute 16(b) of the previous meeting, the Executive Director of Economic Growth and Neighbourhood Services submitted a report providing an update to the petition on resident parking permit eligibility for Kendrick Court following the receipt of further information from the lead petitioner.  The report also set out the rationale for the current exclusion of Kendrick Court from the full permit eligibility within the zone, set out how a change to the eligibility could be made, referred to further information that had been received and recommended against making the change.

The report explained that officers had considered the further information and feedback that had been received from the lead petitioner and the themes were included in the reports along with comments from officers. 

The report stated that it remained the recommendation that Kendrick Court was not included for full RPP eligibility, meaning that the eligibility for the full permit entitlement in the Traffic Regulation Order would not be changed.  It would also not be reasonable to consider Kendrick Court in isolation of other properties that were in the same position and to include all such properties would have significant and unmanageable risks on the saturation level of on-street parking within the zone area thereafter.  Residents of Kendrick Court would continue to have the option of applying for discretionary parking permits and the points that had been raised in the petition could be used to strengthen their case. 

At the invitation of the Chair Edward Hammond addressed the Sub-Committee. 

The Sub-Committee discussed the report and agreed by a majority that the current arrangements should remain in place and that residents should apply on an individual basis for a discretionary parking permit stating the reasons why they needed a permit, and it not being just because there was limited parking in Kendrick Court, which the Sub-Committee would consider sympathetically.

Resolved –

(1)     That the report be noted;

(2)     That the current address eligibility for the full allocation of resident parking permits remains unchanged;

(3)     That the lead petitioner be informed of the decisions of the Sub-Committee, following publication of the agreed minutes of the meeting and that residents be advised to apply for discretionary parking permits;

(4)     That no public inquiry be held into the proposals.
