Details of consultation
As you may be aware, Wokingham Borough Council has received a petition to amend the waiting restrictions along The Terrace. As part of the informal consultation we would seek the views of The Terrace residents and businesses on the proposed restrictions.
Existing Restrictions – Permit Parking (W8) Monday to Saturday 8am to 8pm & Limited Waiting Monday to Saturday 8am to 6pm, 1 hour with no return within 2 hours.
The petition requested that the Limited Waiting area become a shared use bay, meaning anyone can park for a maximum of 1 hour, but that permit holders could stay for any period of time, during the restricted hours. This could mean a reduction in spaces being made available to tradespeople, visitors and customers as residents could remain for longer periods of time, however, Wokingham Borough Council will not issue any extra permits for the area.
To bring into line the existing enforcement times, we propose to change the hours of restrictions to the more standard Monday to Saturday 8am to 6pm on both permit and limited waiting parking bays.
Residents should be aware that any agreed alterations would expect to be left in place for a minimum of five years before any future adjustments could be considered and that if no amendments are made, we will not re-consider any further changes for two years.
