Plans for a residents’ parking zone in Weston town centre have been put on hold.
In January North Somerset Council launched a public consultation on proposals which included reduced costs for residents’ permits in the town centre and adjusted hours for the morning exemption to 9-11am.
But the council’s executive agreed on October 21 that in light of both the consultation feedback and the coronavirus pandemic, it would not to proceed with the January proposals in full at this time.
Measures will be reconsidered as part of a longer-term approach to parking over the next 10 years.
Cllr Mark Canniford said: “The centre of Weston has waited far too long for a resident parking area, have had to put up with charges for nearly a decade.

“After a residents’ scheme is introduced in Leigh Woods there will be an early focus on those areas with existing charges, like the centre of Weston.”
Council leader Don Davies expects progress to be made in late 2021.
