Just days left to give your views on seasonal parking charges in all these Thanet roads

Parking charges

There are just 11 days left to make your views known on plans to change free on-street parking areas across the isle to resident parking schemes, pay and display or both.

The seasonal charges were first proposed by the council in April last year as part of a three phase scheme.

Following the public outcry amendments were made to the scheme last October.

Thanet council said the revised scheme would bring in additional annual revenue of approximately £390k per year. The aim was to plug the gap left by cuts to council grants from central government.

The charges were approved by councillors at the end of last year.

Angry residents in Birchington have raised a petition against the changes.

A copy of the draft orders and maps can be seen at the council offices, Cecil Street, Monday to Friday 8.30am to 5.30pm.

Details will also be available at Pierremont Hall and at libraries in Broadstairs; Birchington; Cliftonville; Ramsgate and Westgate, or at Kent Highway Services, Javelin Way, Ashford, TN24 8DH and at Thanet Gateway Plus, Cecil Street, Margate from Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm.

  1. Re the change from limited parking to pay and display in Westgate. A great example of local democracy in action. 90% don’t want it changed, a consultation period takes place but it will happen anyway. What a charade

  2. I agree with John. Consultation will regrettably have little or no effect. TDC will make these changes as they need cash cow motorists to plug the funding gap due to reduced grant funding from central government. Yet again the local population gets shafted.
