Plans to bring new parking charges to Clevedon, Portishead and Nailsea have been put on hold.
The new tariffs were proposed earlier this year as part of a cross-party parking review launched in response to ongoing problems across North Somerset.
At its meeting today (Wednesday 21 October) North Somerset Council’s Executive voted to extend the review to better assess the impact of the current Covid-19 pandemic on parking habits before changes are made, and to continue work to look at options to introduce residents’ parking permit schemes.
Consultation results showed support for parking charges to be introduced at Leigh Woods where a scheme has been called for by local residents for some time.
Charging is expected to be introduced to the streets around Leigh Woods next year. As well as extending the review, transport officers will also look at issues raised as part of the consultation and investigate solutions.
