Mr Charlie Reynolds, Operations Engineer Parking Services, presented a report outlining objections to the proposed Off Street Parking Places Order for Sutton Valence village car park.


The Order was requested by Sutton Valence Parish Council in order to manage demand at this car park which was owned by the Parish Council. The car park was in high demand as residents of nearby properties did not have off street parking provision and were using the car park to park their cars. As a result Parking Services had proposed a closed period between 07.15-08.15 and a resident permit holders only section.


Mr Reynolds explained to the Committee that as a result of consultation responses, the Parish Council had agreed to reduce the resident permit fee from £120 to £96 and to amend the closed period to 06.15 - 07.15.


Councillor Eve Poulter from Sutton Valence Parish Council addressed the Committee on this item.




1.  That the Borough of Maidstone (Off-Street Parking Places) (Variation No9) Order 2017 is agreed and the Order is made under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984.


2.  That the objectors are informed of the outcome as identified in the report and that the Order is sealed.


Voting: Unanimous
