Overview

 

The closing date for this consultation is now 11 August. 

Jewellery Quarter, Ladywood: On-Street Parking

We are proposing a number of small amendments to the parking bays in the Jewellery Quarter Controlled Parking Zone.  All changes are to the type of bay – the total number of spaces is not affected.

One or more of these proposed changes is on this road and we would like your feedback.  The accompanying map(s) show you what we are proposing.

What is changing?

Most of the changes remove free parking and replace it with either pay & display or permit holder parking.

The remaining changes alter the use of bays and are intended to improve the balance of parking to better suit demand in the area.

Why are we recommending these changes?

The Jewellery Quarter is a thriving part of Birmingham city centre and demand for road space is high; as such, we believe that it is no longer appropriate to include areas of free on-street parking in the area.

By repurposing free parking, everyone who parks on street will have to pay (except disabled residents), either for a permit or for a pay & display ticket, so this is a more equitable arrangement for the area.  In addition, free parking with a limited-stay length is more difficult to enforce and can be abused by some drivers who choose to outstay the limit.

Pay & display prices will be the same as in other pay & display bays in the Jewellery Quarter.

Summer Hill Terrace

The current provision is for permit parking (Monday to Saturday, 8am to 6pm).  The proposed provision is for some disabled parking and for some paid parking (maximum stay four hours, no return within two hours; Monday to Saturday, 8am to 6pm).

 

What Happens Next

After the consultation closes, we will review all your responses and make appropriate changes to the proposed scheme. There will then be a period of legal consultation on the Traffic Regulation Order before the scheme can be implemented. You may respond to that legal consultation whether or not you have responded this time, but it is easier for us to incorporate your suggestions now than during that statutory consultation.
