Rutland County Council is reminding residents and businesses to share their feedback on a new Parking Policy before public consultation draws to an end this month.
The new policy covers areas such as public parking provision, including infrastructure and enforcement. It aims to support Rutland’s local economy and environmental aims by enabling residents, businesses, and visitors to safely access and enjoy local services and amenities.
The policy also aims to ensure the safety of those using the highway, regardless of how people choose to travel and ensure the efficient movement of vehicles through Rutland’s two market towns and along key routes. It also seeks to protect the environment by working in tandem with emerging transport policies that aim to support a reduction in car dependency, wherever possible.
The Council is seeking feedback on the overarching vision and objectives contained within its new Parking Policy. Consultation ends at midnight on Sunday 22 May 2022.
Residents and businesses can take part in the consultation and read the document in full by going to our Parking Strategy page. This includes a Microsoft Word version of the consultation questionnaire, allowing those with visual impairments to use audio transcription technology.
For anyone without a computer or internet access, paper questionnaires can be obtained from Rutland Libraries or by calling: 01572 722 577 and asking to speak to the Council’s Transport Strategy Team. You can also email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
All the feedback gathered as part of this consultation will be reviewed, with a summary of the findings published online. These findings will then be used to amend the policy where needed.
