Plans introduced to resolve Derby County parking problems

24/09/2015
Derby City Council has revealed that new parking enforcement plans could be introduced to tackle parking problems on Derby County match days.

When Derby County have a home match at the iPro Stadium the nearby streets are clogged with fans' cars as they park up and walk to the game. As a result, the council has been exploring car park solutions that could alleviate the congestion in the area.

According to the Derby Telegraph, Derby City Council is expecting to adopt the roads at the City Point housing estate near to the stadium in the next few months. Once it has control over the roads it can add the necessary lighting, pavements and - once this is complete - introduce parking permits.

Mark Tittley, Alvaston city councillor has said that he is hopeful that the introduction of the parking permits would put an end to Derby County fans parking on the estate on match days - at present hundreds of cars are being left in the area causing a "nightmare" for local residents. He also hopes that other areas will be targeted with similar plans, including the Wilmorton area and in Brighton Road.

He said: "This problem has gone on for too long and I feel now is the time to act. I would want to introduce a residents-only parking permit in these areas but only if that's something they want to introduce.

"I think they will. We can't be in a situation where these areas have to put up with the nightmare of cars parked everywhere outside their streets and all over their roads. In some cases, people are struggling to leave their homes and the parking problems are coming from the football."
