Parking Review Process

Each parking review follows a similar process as outlined below:

  1. Scheme inception - initial data gathering and discussions with local stakeholders;
  2. Informal consultation - consultation with local residents and businesses to find out if local people find parking a problem, if they would like to see changes considered, and if so, what changes.
  3. Statutory consultation - a formal consultation process where we present a detailed proposed scheme. Feedback to this stage will be used to decide if any changes are made.
  4. Implementation (if appropriate) - launch of new scheme.

Gloucestershire County Council is undertaking a review of parking provision in the County. This is to ensure that parking rules are fit for purpose and support planning and transport policies.

Details relating to each scheme are provided below:

Stroud Parking review

**The informal consultation for this parking review area is now closed**

Current stage: Stage 3 – Informal Consultation complete, review of comments

Gloucestershire County Council (GCC) are currently reviewing the parking in Stroud. GCC have been working collaboratively with both the District and Town Council to ensure our polices align with Neighbourhood Plans and Local Cycle and Walking strategies.

Surveys were undertaken in 2014 and again revisited more recently in September 2019. This ensured we captured data on parking behaviors.

Gloucestershire County Council believes that introducing a Permit Parking Zone to cover the residential areas of Stroud would increase residents’ chance of finding a parking space in their neighbourhood and better manage the kerbside space. Parking permits that prioritise residents and their visitors, will discourage commuters from driving short distances from other parts of Gloucestershire, and parking during the daytime for work.

This consultation will be focused on the residential areas to the north and south east of the town centre. The aim of this informal consultation is to gather information, local expertise and opinion within the community regarding parking.

We have shared some draft proposals on our online portal. These are deliberately vague as we want your feedback, to help shape the options. To support you in making your comments, the portal also has further information about what a TRO is, and what the types of parking restrictions mean.

Once we have your feedback, we will review this alongside the outcomes of Stroud Town Council Neighbourhood (Street Spaces) consultation to ensure any detailed proposals, consider the needs of all highway users.

Parking will still be available within the city in off-street car parks, please see Stroud District Council website for information regarding off street parking.

This parking review is also looking into the implementation of electric vehicle charging points both on and off street.
