Our Parking Team and the four Bridgnorth Shropshire councillors have carried out a review of the residents' parking schemes in Bridgnorth in an attempt to make improvements to the various schemes currently operating.
Traffic congestion and pollution in Bridgnorth are a concern for residents, and we're keen to promote and encourage residents to lead a healthier lifestyle by considering alternative modes of transport, thus reducing vehicle usage in the town as well as combatting climate change.
This consultation is the first stage in gathering residents’ views on the local residents' parking schemes in Bridgnorth, and we'd really welcome you taking a few minutes to complete the questionnaire, letting us know your thoughts about the changes being proposed.
Following this, there will be a face-to-face public workshop event which will probably be held in Bridgnorth Library, where plans will be on display and residents will be able to see for themselves the changes which are being proposed for each parking scheme. Residents will be able to speak to their local Shropshire councillors at this event, and members of staff from our Parking Team will also be in attendance. It's hoped that the revised parking schemes will be introduced at the end of the year, or early next year.

In response to concerns with regards to parking congestion we're giving consideration to the introduction and revision of a number of residents' on-street preferential parking schemes in Bridgnorth. We're currently consulting with residents on scheme proposals in the following scheme areas:
- St Leonard's Steps
- East and West Castle Street
- Cartway and Friar's Street
- King Charles Way and Abbotts Way
- King’s Loade
- Listley Street and St Mary's Street
- Railway Street
- St Leonard’s Close
- Severn Street
- Southwell Riverside
- Underhill Street
- Wardle Close
A residents' parking scheme is usually provided as a means to help residents park their vehicles within a reasonable distance of their home, where vehicles not belonging to residents are making this difficult.
For any scheme to be considered there needs to be formal recognition of an observable and persistent problem. Therefore, before any scheme proposal can be implemented it's essential that support at a local level is obtained, before progressing to wider consultation. We're now seeking the views of residents within the proposed scheme areas.
