The number of responses to the traffic regulation order consultation for the area around the Kings Theatre has been very high and is in stark contrast to the feeble response to the informal survey. 


The procedure when introducing residents' parking is to first ask people whether they want a scheme - and just 14% of households responded to that, which is about half the historic rate. This is then followed by the statutory legal consultation and it is that which has elicited a big response. 


At this point, we don’t know what people have said, but it may well include people asking for a 24-hour scheme, objections from shops and people wanting a nighttime scheme to limit theatre parking. Officers are sorting through everything with a view to a decision being made in June or July.
