Southville and Bedminster Parking Survey

Closed 6 Jan 2020

Opened 21 Nov 2019

Feedback Updated 21 Oct 2020

We Asked

The council was contacted by people living and working in parts of Southville and Bedminster requesting extra parking controls to solve problems they experience with parking.
 
We are committed to listening to people’s views, and therefore wanted to hear your thoughts to help us decide if any parking changes are needed and would be supported more widely.

The council’s position is that there needs to be overwhelming support for a Residents’ Parking Scheme (RPS) in a community before a new RPS could be considered.
 
The council undertook a follow-up survey of all citizens, businesses and other stakeholders in the area to gauge if the views we have received so far are representative of wider concerns in the area and, in the case of RPS, if there is evidence of overwhelming support in part or all of the survey area.

You Said

A parking and road safety survey was undertaken by ward members for Bedminster and Southville earlier this year, which provided helpful information on the views of more than 1,200 people who responded. The survey asked people what, if any, parking and road safety issues concern them and also asked if they would support the possibility of a new Residents’ Parking Scheme in their area. We are grateful to everyone who gave their views.

Why are we asking for your views now?
