City Centre Parking Permits - West Port vicinity

The West Port area has traditionally been part of the City Centre Parking Permit scheme.   However, I have highlighted with the City Council over a considerable period the need to correct an anomaly whereby a small number of households in the western part of the street have been excluded from the scheme, due to an error in the boundary.

I was given a commitment some time ago that this would be addressed as part of the City Centre Controlled Parking Zone review.

I recently asked the council's Head of Transportation for an update on the situation and he has responded as follows :
The City Centre Controlled Parking Zone review is still on-going and the Residents' Parking Zone issues are included within this review.  It is planned to bring this to committee late Autumn 2014 and implement any changes in summer 2015.  In the meantime any previously agreed concessions will be maintained.
