It is the turn of residents in the west of the Island to have their say over changes to parking restrictions with the launch of a new consultation from Isle of Wight Council.
More than 30 locations including Freshwater, Yarmouth & Totland, as well as Brighstone, Shalfleet & Shorwell are the subject of a consultation on the proposed changes. In addition, one site in Rookley has been added. The proposals have originated through suggestions made by members of the public or local councillors and the deadline for comments is March 8.
The consultation contains details of draft Traffic Regulation Orders (TROs) – these usually relate to changes to traffic issues such as double yellow lines, limited waiting bays, loading bays etc.
Isle of Wight Council works with Town, Parish and Community Councils and local ward councillors to ensure proposals that are generated and reach this stage have already had some degree of public support.
Comments of support and objections can only be legally considered if a full address is given whether the response is given by the online survey or in by letter or email.
The consultation can be found on the council’s web site at: District 6 – Traffic Regulation Order Consultation (iow.gov.uk)
