Parking Management Strategy and action plan, introduction of new charges and short-stay permit consultation

18th March 2024

North Somerset Council has today (Monday 18 March 2024) launched our seven-week consultation on proposals to introduce a new parking management strategy and action plan that could apply across North Somerset, and the introduction of new charges in car parks and on-street parking, and a short-stay parking permit.

A press release has just been shared with local media, which you can see on the council website at:

We have composed a questionnaire specifically for local businesses to complete to seek your views on the proposed changes. We are interested in how any changes could impact your business, your staff and your customers. We also want to hear from businesses that might be impacted by the displacement of cars if they choose to not park at one of the locations mentioned in the questionnaire.

Please complete this by midday on Tuesday 7 May.

We encourage everyone to complete the questionnaire online if possible, although a Word version is available upon request. Please email to request a copy.
