Have a say on resident permit parking scheme

Caerphilly county borough residents are being invited to give their comments on a proposal which would see changes to the council’s Resident Permit Parking Policy.

The proposal seeks to consolidate existing parking permit schemes in operation and bring consistency across all areas of Caerphilly county borough.

Cllr Sean Morgan, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Infrastructure said, “The current situation regarding parking permits in Caerphilly county borough is inconsistent and varies considerably across different geographical areas, both in terms of the times of permit operation and the number of permits per household.

“The proposal includes a £30 charge to be made for the issue of the permits, to cover administration and maintenance costs, and would bring Caerphilly county borough in line with many other areas across the country who also impose a fee.

 “This is currently subject to a period of consultation, with residents asked to register their comments by 21st September”.

A copy of the proposed Order and a statement of the Council’s reasons for making the Order can be inspected at Caerphilly County Borough Council’s headquarters, Penallta House.

Any objection to the proposed Order with the grounds for making it should be made in writing, by 21st September 2018 to Head of Infrastructure, Caerphilly County Borough Council, Penallta House, Tredomen Park, Ystrad Mynach, CF82 7PG or by email traffman@caerphilly.gov.uk

For further information, please contact the council’s Traffic Management Section on 01495 235131.
