Parking Review Process
Each parking review follows a similar process as outlined below:
- Scheme inception - initial data gathering and discussions with local stakeholders;
- 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.
- 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.
- Implementation (if appropriate) - launch of new scheme.
Details relating to each scheme are provided below.
Cheltenham Parking Review - West: West End, Lansdown & Railway
(Reference Number - JKS/60327)
Current Stage: Stage 4 - Implementation, August 2017
Following consultation in 2016, three new permit parking zones are now being introduced in western Cheltenham.
The new parking restrictions will apply from August 1st 2017. Local residents and businesses must purchase permits before that date to avoid being at risk of receiving a parking ticket (Penalty Charge Notice).

Kemble Parking Review
We are carrying out an area-wide review of parking in Kemble - tell us your views
Gloucestershire County Council is undertaking a review of the on-street parking in Kemble. The purpose of the parking review is to manage parking congestion in the village once the station car park is extended. The review will be across the whole village in order to deter commuters from parking on the nearby streets.
We believe a Permit Parking Scheme, will control parking behaviours and reduce its impact on traffic movement, where drivers may search for a free space.
We would like to discuss this idea with local residents and businesses – we will use your feedback to decide if any changes to the scheme should be considered.
Tell us your views
We held a drop-in consultation event on 26th April at which many residents talked to us about the Permit Parking Scheme. Feedback on the various options will allow us to identify which areas want to see changes made, what changes would work best, or if any changes are required at all. It will also help determine the times and days any potential scheme might operate.
If you could not attend the event, you can view the information presented and provide your feedback through an online form here: https://gloucestershire.objective.co.uk/portal/trp/parking/kemble/kemble_parking
You can leave feedback via letter or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Should the proposed parking permit scheme be introduced in your area, the County Councils permit terms and conditions would apply. Meaning you would be required to pay for a permit to park in your street and buy vouchers for your visitors (how require longer than 4 hours stay).
Cheltenham Parking Review - Racecourse Events
Current Stage: Stage 3 - Statutory consultation
Gloucestershire County Council and Cheltenham Racecourse have been reviewing how we manage temporary parking & traffic restrictions during events at the racecourse.
We consulted local people in August 2016 about proposed permit parking arrangements to apply during events - details of the consultation are available here: Cheltenham Racecourse Statutory Consultation
Cirencester Town Centre Highway Improvements
Current Stage: Stage 3 - Statutory consultation - (July 2016)
For details regarding the proposed changes to the parking arrangements in Cirencester see Cirencester Market Place
Cotswold Parking Review - Moreton in Marsh
Current Stage: Stage 2 - Informal consultation - (July 2015)
Gloucestershire County Council has received many complaints from local residents and businesses about parking in Moreton-in-Marsh. We have investigated the problem, and together with the Town Council and local business group, have been considering potential options to improve accessibility in the town.
A parking survey has confirmed parking congestion in the town, and provided a lot of information about the nature of the problem.
We believe better management of on-street parking in the town centre is needed. A scheme that controls parking spaces more fairly, sharing access to shops, together with a new permit parking scheme for residents, would improve access for all visitors to the town.
By controlling parking through time limits and/or pay and display, we can help to increase access to the shops whilst also protecting residents parking near their homes.
In July 2015 we consulted residents and businesses of the town to understand their views Moreton-in-Marsh Parking Survey
We have since been discussing feedback with the Town Council in order to identify the next steps. Any management of on-street parking in the High Street clearly needs to complement management of the Car Park areas (owned by the Town Council), and so we are working closely to consider if any changes are needed.
