We asked

During February/ March 2023 we undertook a public engagement with residents and businesses in the Stoneygate area to obtain views on a potential residents parking scheme. We asked respondents: "Do you support the introduction of a permit scheme on your street that operates at all times of the day, 7 days a week?"

You said

Approximately 1,680 residential and business dwellings were invited to take part in the consultation. In total we have received 518 responses on paper and via this website from residents and businesses in the area. Responses were analysed by council officers.

  • 139 residents and business responded ‘No’ to the proposed residential parking scheme (27 %)
  • 366 residents responded ‘Yes’ to the proposed residential parking scheme (71 %)
  • 13 residents and businesses did not answer the question or had no opinion (2 %) 

In addition, respondents included comments both for and against residents parking in the area.

We did

The response data and comments have been analysed in more detail to determine whether or not to continue with further engagement with residents and businesses over potential measures to manage parking in the area. 

Residents’ responses to our 2023 public engagement on possible traffic measures in the Stoneygate area indicated that there is a significant support for a residents’ parking scheme in area affected by non-residents. 

Based on these consultation responses, we are now preparing for a formal engagement involving Traffic Regulation Order process.


A number of residents have raised concerns about parking issues in the Stoneygate area. The majority of these relate to difficulties finding parking spaces close to their home due to commuters or other visitors to the area taking up available parking spaces.

We would like to hear your views on a proposal to introduce a controlled residents parking zone in the area.
