Changes to residents’ parking arrangements came into effect in St Mary’s at the start of July. The residents parking scheme for the area will now operate Monday – Saturday, 8am – 6pm. Before the hours of operation were 8am – 10pm, seven days a week. Also the time limit for short-stay parking will be relaxed from one hour to two hours for people without permits.
The changes follow a lengthy consultation with local people. Conservative Councillors have been pushing the Council for some time to do more to tackle problems with parking in the area and we are keen to get feedback from residents on the changes.
