Grove Road: Permit Parking Consultation

Closed 19 Dec 2021

Opened 19 Nov 2021


The Council has received a petition about vehicles not belonging to local residents being parked for long periods of time in Grove Road.  This extra parking pressure can make it difficult for local residents to park near their properties.  If supported by local residents, new permit parking controls could be introduced to resolve this issue.

How does permit parking work?

Permit parking could be introduced to only allow vehicles belonging to local properties, including those of their visitors, to park in Grove Road.

Signs would be displayed alongside the permit parking bay to indicate that parking is for local permit holders only during the controlled times of operation. The times of operation would be decided based on the feedback received to this consultation.

We are proposing that double yellow lines would also be introduced in some locations on road safety and accessibility grounds.

The plan below provides an overview of where these new parking controls could apply.

Who can get a permit & how much do permits cost?

We are proposing that only properties within this consultation area (as shown on the plan) would be eligible for permits.

The easiest and cheapest way to apply for permits is online.  The cost of applying online for one Resident Permit, covering 12 months, is £20.  A second permit is available for £100 and any further permits cost £180.  Business permits cost £420.  Six-month permits are also available. 

Residents may also purchase Visitor Tickets to give to their visitors at £10 for a book of 10 tickets.  Each Visitor Ticket is valid for one whole day.  Disabled badge holders and owners of fully electric vehicles may obtain their permit FREE of charge. 

Any paper / postal applications for Resident permits will incur an additional admin fee of £20 per application (this does not apply to Visitor Tickets).
