Have your say on town parking

RESIDENTS can now have their say on how parking in Dewsbury town centre can be improved.

Kirklees Council launched an online survey this week in a bid to help form a strategy to improve parking provision.

A contractor will gather relevant information such as the duration of people’s stays, preferred methods of payment, how well used car parks are and whether they have the right number of spaces.

Coun Peter McBride, cabinet member for regeneration, said: “We have ambitious plans to make sure all our town centres thrive and a part of this is making sure parking supports our vision.

“We want our businesses and centres to succeed, so we need to make sure parking encourages visitors rather than deterring them. 

“This could be through different ways of paying for parking or more or fewer spaces in certain areas.”

The survey is open until Sunday June 30 and can be viewed at www.kirklees.gov.uk/kirkleesparking.
