The council would like to thank residents who took part in the parking survey in Cheltenham.

When the survey closed on Sunday 29 January 2017, the council received 1,134 responses.

Ticket prices, car park access and disabled provision are some of the topics that were covered in the survey which focused on ‘off street’ parking in council owned car parks.

The next steps in the process will see a review of the results gathered and a sharing of the outcomes with council’s cabinet late spring 2017.

The information and results gathered will be added to the overall review of off street car parking, which is currently being undertaken by the council.  The work will help to shape a parking strategy to take us to 2031.

Councillor Andrew McKinlay, cabinet member for development and safety said: "We are pleased with the response and wish to thank all for their involvement and telling us what they think about the town’s parking facilities."

Mike Redman, director for built environment added: "We wanted as many people as possible to take part in the survey whether they were residents of Cheltenham, visitors or commuters. We are delighted with the response and thank everyone who took part as it is important that we make sure that the town’s parking provision takes account of the needs of everyone."
