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.

Details relating to each scheme are provided below:

Cheltenham All Saints & Gloucester Kingsholm Parking Reviews

Current stage: Stage 2 – Informal Consultation August 2021

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.

Throughout 2020 a review of the parking within Gloucestershire took place. Surveys were undertaken in February and March as well as May and June. This ensured we captured current parking situation before and during the COVID-19 UK wide lockdown.

Gloucestershire County Council believes that introducing a Permit Parking Zone to cover this eastern area of Cheltenham and the Kingsholm area of Gloucester 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 to these areas, from other parts of Gloucestershire, and parking during the daytime for work.

Parking will still be available within the city in off-street car parks, please see Cheltenham Borough Council and Gloucester City Council websites 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.
