Plans put forward for two-hour parking in Clacton town centre
11:41am Tuesday 19th March 2013 in News
TRADERS and shoppers have welcomed long-awaited proposals for longer on-street parking in Clacton town centre.
Shopkeepers have been calling for two-hour parking spaces since a revamp of the town centre six years ago saw the number of parking spaces scut.
They complained that one-hour spaces in the town centre put shoppers off as they are unable to get thier shopping done in time.
It is also proposed to restrict parking for lorries and coaches on part of the seafront from Martello Bay to Holland and to restrict camper vans and caravans from Clacton Pier to Martello Bay only.
New residents’ only parking schemes would also be introduced in Crossfield Road and Anchor Road. A consultation on the plans ends on April 25.
