Council proposes solution to Cleethorpes’ parking problems

Following a consultation with residents, businesses and ward councillors in Cleethorpes, North East Lincolnshire Council have issued an update on their plans for a Controlled Parking Zone.

Highway officials are now continuing to look at a possible scheme based on the feedback, after residents made a number of requests.

Included in the requested changes is the introduction of standalone resident parking permits as a solution to the increasing parking pressures from local shoppers, tourists and commuters using residential roads for long periods of time.

This has prompted highway officials to look at the feasibility of a wider parking scheme covering multiple streets.

Councillor Stewart Swinburn, portfolio holder for environment and transport, said:

“We understand the frustration and eagerness of residents in wanting to see this issue resolved and the council and ENGIE remain committed to looking at a solution that balances the needs of all residents and businesses in the area.

“The traffic regulation process does take time and is a very engagement-based and intensive process.

“Following the survey last year, officials are continuing to review the feedback with ward councillors.

“In the coming months, we will move to the next stage of the process and be engaging on possible parking measures in the resort.

“At this time, no firm decision has been made but we will continue to keep those affected updated as the scheme develops.

“This is a legal and lengthy process, but I would like to assure those calling for the scheme that we are acting on feedback and working to develop a solution.”
