East Reading Study: resident parking permit scheme

The Council carried out a statutory (legal) consultation in November 2018 on introducing a new parking scheme for the East Reading to address on-going parking problems across the area. The consultation was split into two separate areas, area 1 included a number of roads in the vicinity of Hamilton Road and area 2 included roads around Wykeham Road. Following a review of the feedback to the consultation, a decision was made to implement area 1 and to review area 2 after the installation was completed.

Area 1 was successfully installed in September 2019 and the Traffic Management Sub-Committee decided to proceed with the implementation of area 2 at their meeting in November 2019. This scheme will now be introduced. The approved scheme includes a variety of resident permit and waiting restrictions tailored for each street.

Letters have been posted to residents directly affected by the scheme, offering them the chance to apply for their permits. Permit applications must be completed by the 29th July 2020 in order for them to be processed before the scheme goes live on Wednesday 5th August 2020.

If you have any queries regarding the permit scheme or your permit application, please contact the parking permit team on 0118 937 3767 or residents.parking@reading.gov.uk
