Blue Badge holders and other car park users are being urged to have their say on an upcoming consultation about the provision of Blue Badge parking spaces at some of Broxtowe Borough Council’s car parks.
The Council is consulting on the provision of spaces in five of its 29 car parks, after surveys taken in the autumn of last year suggested a significant number of spaces in these sites were underused.
Councillor Jan Goold, Chair of the Council’s Community Safety Committee said: “The Council is keen to hear from as many local people as possible as part of this consultation to help inform the Committee’s decision about Blue Badge Parking provision.”
“Whilst our original surveys suggested that Blue Badge spaces were considerably underused at eight of our 29 car parks, there is no suitable alternative parking at three of these sites so the consultation focuses on the car parks at Derby Street Middle and Middle Street in Beeston; Cliffe Hill Avenue in Stapleford; The Sun Inn at Eastwood and James Street in Kimberley.”
An online consultation will run from 13th February to 13th March, as well as on site in the car parks.
The latest parking figures can be found in the Committee Agenda on pages 42-46 at http://www.broxtowe.gov.uk/CHttpHandler.ashx?id=34803&p=0
