Please see http://www.roundhill.biz for a full presentation of the case for re-consulting Round Hill residents.

Love them or loathe them, CPZs (residents' parking schemes) are now a feature of UK city life. In Brighton and Hove, they have grown from 2 in 2001 to 14 in 2011.

As new CPZs reach the boundaries of our city suburb, Round Hill cannot comfortably store the vehicles of outsiders wishing to avoid a fee of circa £2 per week.

Preferential treatment is now needed for our own residents' parking needs as well as the other benefits (cleaner environment, clearer footways, more room on junctions for emergency services and recycling collection vehicles). Without a CPZ, the obstructions to our own residents' needs will get worse.

We, the undersigned, call on Brighton and Hove City Council to re-consult residents in Round Hill on membership of the Area J Extension residents' parking scheme in the context of the problem of displacement from areas of the city where parking is no longer free.
