A series of zones will be created around the town, with an additional zone in lower Wivenhoe.

The changes to existing schemes have been agreed following a recent consultation, with some changes being made to the initial proposals in response to the more than 1,200 comments made.

In central zones particularly permit holders will be able to park in neighbouring areas further away from the town centre where there is less demand, while residents close to the Butt Road and Napier Road car parks will also be able to use them overnight from 6pm to 8am.

Each household will be limited to two permits, and work will be carried out on signs to make the system clearer.

The new system will affect around 7,400 households, and their visitors.

Once this zone system has been introduced Colchester Borough Council will look to bring in schemes in other areas.

Martin Hunt, borough councillor for street services, said: “We received many comments during the consultation and these have shaped the proposals that will be implemented.

“It is clear there are strong views on where and when permit parking should be provided. In many areas people made it clear they wanted no change and I have, as promised, responded to this.

“The changes planned for each of the zones still aim to better enable residents living in permit areas, and their visitors, to park. Considering each zone in turn, they also reflect the views of other uses found in some residential areas, including schools and businesses.

“Many residents will see more choice of areas where they can park and allocating permits will be fairer, reflecting high demand and limited space available for parking.”

Full details for each zone are available at www.colchester.gov.uk/permitparkingreview.
