Parking scheme is one step closer for Stamford residents

9 October 2014

A parking permit scheme for Stamford town centre residents is one step closer after Lincolnshire County Council considered the necessary traffic regulation orders this week.

Parking Sign

The scheme, which will be administered by South Kesteven District Council and enforced by a county council contractor, will mean residents aren’t bound by the current two-hour parking restriction in the area.

The Planning and Regulations Committee agreed the traffic orders should be made, including some slight changes following a public consultation. Once amended signs are in place to reflect the new orders, residents and businesses in the designated area will be able to apply for permits through the district council at a proposed cost of £50 per year.

The arrangements could be in place by the end of 2014 and will be reviewed in 12 months.

Cllr Richard Davies, Executive County Councillor for Highways and Transport, said:

“Stamford residents have been asking for a form of residents’ parking for upwards of 10 years, so we’re pleased to work with the district council to support this. Not only will this arrangement make things much easier for local people and businesses, but it will allow visitors to continue making the most of historical Stamford’s many attractions.”

South Kesteven District Council’s Property Development Manager Neil Cucksey said:

“Now that the traffic regulation orders have been accepted, the two councils will produce a report on operating conditions, which will set out the rules of the scheme that will be applied to people wanting a permit. This will include a map of residents’ parking zones. We hope to have this complete by the end of the year.”

More information on the scheme, including FAQs, can be found on the South Kesteven District Council website.
