TRO-14a-2017 Elm Grove Sunday parking restrictions
We the undersigned petition Brighton & Hove Council to undertake two urgent changes: 1) That the scheme be restricted to Monday to Saturday only. This still delivers the scheme’s prime purpose – to remove the congestion from commuters, workers, and shoppers, but allows freer movement just on Sundays. 2) That the shared pay/residents bays are replaced by pay only bays, so that there is at least a very limited opportunity for people without residents permits to be able to park.
We rely on the support and fellowship we get at St
Joseph’s Church in Elm Grove. This depends on people who have
cars to bring people to church on Sunday, and most of these live
outside the area, as the church also serves Bevendean and
Moulsecoomb. They would not be able to park, as they would not get
a residents’ permit. This will prevent not only the drivers
getting to the church but also the local and non local elderly
residents that they bring (affecting 140 people in all and
threatening the ongoing community life of the whole church).
The main church services are on Sundays. The people affected will not be able to park in the very few shared spaces, as it is clear that the shortage of residents parking spaces will ensure that nearly all shared spaces will have a resident permit holder parked there.
