Parking in Portsmouth: have your say

Residents, businesses and visitors to Portsmouth are being asked to give their views on parking in the city.

Portsmouth City Council has launched a detailed survey exploring possible solutions to concerns raised about parking in the city.

The survey focuses on three main themes, the practicalities of introducing resident parking zones across the entire city; how parking should be considered within planning policy; and parking issues created by commercial vehicles. These areas were chosen based on a previous survey and focus group carried out with residents where these were identified as key topics.

The survey also asks people about their use of their own vehicles, public transport and cycling to help the council understand people's travel habits and how they get around Portsmouth.

The work is being led by the council's Traffic, Environment and Community Safety Scrutiny Panel, and Cllr Steve Hastings, Chair of the panel, said. "We know many residents have persistent problems with parking. We have been speaking with them about what they think would help improve the parking situation, and these ideas have helped shape this survey. In a densely populated city such as Portsmouth parking is always going to be problematic but it is important to canvass people's views so together we can explore possible solutions."

The results from the survey will be published later in 2018.
