Airport Parking Scheme pdf icon PDF 81 KB

Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Working Party received a report of the Executive Director (Neighbourhoods and Environment) concerning further requests and alleged issues surrounding the parking areas in the vicinity of the airport.  The report also sought the Working Party’s views on the preferred way forward,

 

The Working Party discussed the options in some detail and considered the merits of undertaking consultation on individual roads as set out in Option 3 of the submitted report.  It also heard that the concept of a “Southend Pass” and zoning of areas as part of a Boroughwide Parking Strategy were being currently being contemplated.   The Working Party therefore felt, on balance, that consultation on any scheme should be delayed until 2021. This would enable the outcome of the discussions on these measures to help inform options this area.

 

Resolved:-

 

That Cabinet Committee be recommended that consultation on any scheme for the area around the airport be delayed until 2021 to allow the service to understand the new parking behaviours, including those of the airport, and the outcome of discussions on the potential development of a Southend Pass and the zoning of areas as part of a Boroughwide Parking Strategy.
