If you live in in Pine Grove you were sent a letter in January 2023.
We asked residents and businesses in the road to give us their views about what parking changes they would like to see.
The online survey closed on Sunday 12 March 2023.
We received total of 66 responses, however 9 were received from same households and duplicates were removed from data.
This led to a 64.8% response rate:
- From the 57 property responses to the survey, 54 were supportive of introducing parking restrictions in the road.
- 34 indicated a preference for a resident permit scheme and 52 indicated restrictions should apply Monday to Friday only.
- 15 preferred to run restrictions between 8am -10am and 2pm - 4pm, 17 preferred 9am-5pm, and 11 preferred 8am-8pm.
Permit zones enable enforcement of stationary vehicles which do not have a permit during restricted hours.
They do not prevent vehicles from driving along the road to access properties including the school.
A brief stop on the highway in order to pick up or drop off passengers within a residential permit zone is also permitted for all vehicles, under parking legislation.
