August 29, 2015 12:44 PM

Permit parkingShropshire Council recently consulted residents in the Abbey Foregate area about a resident's parking scheme.

190 letters were sent to households in the area, and 65 households responded. Only 48 households supported a resident's parking scheme, or 25% of households contacted.

Michael Davies of Shropshire Council said

'The supportive response rate falls considerably short of the target for us to proceed further with a resident's parking scheme proposal in the Abbey Foregate area.'

Hannah Fraser said

'Parking remains an acute issue for many residents, and I will continue to work towards getting more on street parking spaces and making sure that new developments have enough off-street parking'.
