Decision:

RESOLVED:

 

       i.    That the Parking Strategy Framework be amended as is required to reflect the decision already made to retain the existing hours of charging on all on street pay & display parking places in Ludlow;

 

      ii.   That the subsequent concerns raised be considered and the Parking Strategy Framework be amended as is required and deemed appropriate to reflect the retention of the existing hours of charging on all on street pay & display parking places within the Shrewsbury town centre river loop.

 

     iii.    That the subsequent concerns raised be considered and the Parking Strategy Framework be amended as is required and deemed appropriate to reflect the retention of the existing hours of charging at Bridge Street, St Austin’s Street and Quarry Leisure Centre pay & display parking places within the Shrewsbury town centre river loop.

 

Minutes:

The Portfolio Holder for Transport and Highways presented a report on proposed revisions to the charging hours in Ludlow and Shrewsbury.  He stated that, as a result of local representations received prior to the Cabinet meeting on 25 July 2018, changes had been made to the Ludlow charging regime.  Since that Cabinet meeting, representations had been made regarding the impact of changes to the night time economy and to businesses in Shrewsbury; an option to retain the status quo was now for consideration at this meeting. A Member drew attention to the comments received from the Shrewsbury BID and also commented on the effects on users of the car parks especially vulnerable people who would have been affected by the original proposal.

 

In response to a Member’s concerns that there was no reference in the committee papers to the recent call in of the car parking decisions made by Cabinet on 25 July 2018,  the Senior Solicitor advised that this technical point did not prevent a legal decision being made at this meeting.

 

RESOLVED:

 

       i.    That the Parking Strategy Framework be amended as is required to reflect the decision already made to retain the existing hours of charging on all on street pay & display parking places in Ludlow;

 

      ii.   That the subsequent concerns raised be considered and the Parking Strategy Framework be amended as is required and deemed appropriate to reflect the retention of the existing hours of charging on all on street pay & display parking places within the Shrewsbury town centre river loop.

 

     iii.    That the subsequent concerns raised be considered and the Parking Strategy Framework be amended as is required and deemed appropriate to reflect the retention of the existing hours of charging at Bridge Street, St Austin’s Street and Quarry Leisure Centre pay & display parking places within the Shrewsbury town centre river loop.
