Closed 28 Sep 2011

Opened 6 Jul 2011

Results Updated 1 Feb 2017

This consultation was conducted during August/September 2011.  The questionnaire was a postal and online survey.  The total number of responses received by the Council was 795.

The details in the consultation report summarise the findings of the whole survey, noting the basic high/low indicators for each question.  Where respondents were asked to state views, other options or indicate specific details these are also summarised.



The Council is reviewing its car parking strategy and is seeking your views. 

The questions in this survey are designed to ensure that residents, visitors, businesses and community groups have the opportunity to comment on the Councils parking facilities and to put forward views and highlight issues that they think are important. This will assist the Council in deciding on issues in the future.

Why We Are Consulting

Consultation has taken place over recent years that has helped the Council to develop its parking functions and changes have been made in order to improve the parking experience for users. 

 Recently the Council introduced charges for Blue Badge Holders and at that time agreed with the Cumbria Disability Network that it would review the charging policy after 6 months.

 The Council is also reviewing how it operates car parks and how it can make the cost of parking as fair and equitable to all as it can be. The Council is considering advances in modern technology especially regarding Number Plate Recognition and cashless parking such as pay by phone and payment by credit/debit card.
