Cheltenham and Gloucester parking consultation to end

Residents and businesses in parts of Gloucestershire are to get their final say about planned car parking changes.

The proposals include more residents' parking and short-term pay-and-display schemes in parts of Gloucester and Cheltenham.

A Gloucestershire County Council spokesman said the plans had been modified following public consultation.

"Before we get to the legal stage we would prefer to address any existing concerns," he said.

The parking reviews are concentrating on outlying residential areas and are split into a number of phases.

In phase one of the plans, five zones in Cheltenham are being looked at covering approximately 4,000 households, mostly in the St Lukes and All Saints areas to the east of the town centre.

In Gloucester, three areas covering approximately 4,000 households in Kingsholm, Wotton and St Paul's are being scrutinised.

"I hope that people living or working in the areas affected will take the time to check out what is planned," the spokesman added.
