Council mulls plans for parking permits in Leicester suburb

Residents on the outskirts of Leicester are being consulted over parking enforcement plans to see if they would be in favour of a new scheme.

Leicester City Council wants to tackle the parking problem being experienced in Clarendon Park, with people clogging up the roads around the fashionable suburb by leaving their cars there. The council is to speak with residents about potential solutions to the issue.

A city council spokesman said: "Following requests from residents, we will soon be carrying out a consultation on the scheme in Clarendon Park.

"Before that takes place, residents and businesses are being invited to an exhibition where more information will be available. This will ensure local people are better informed before taking part in the consultation exercise."

The event will run from 1pm to 6.30pm for three days, starting on 18 November, the Leicester Mercury reported.

This is not the first time the council has tried to introduce new parking schemes in the area; back in 2008 a plan for £25 annual permits was proposed to prevent too many people parking in Clarendon Park, but the plans were dropped when 58 per cent of respondents opposed it.

Businesses in the area agree that a parking solution needs to be found but many feel that introducing resident permits would harm trade.
