Rhondda Cynon Taf Council is beginning a consultation process with residents and businesses regarding the ongoing provision of residents parking schemes in Pontypridd and Treforest.
The consultation period will start on May 12th 2014 and last for a three week period, when questionnaires will be sent to all households in the areas.
The proposals would extend existing residents parking zones as well as creating new residents parking zones.
Limited waiting parking bays will be introduced to provide parking bays for visitors.
The proposals will also address other issues in the areas, such as the provision of double yellow lines at junctions, with a view to improving safety for pedestrians as well as improving traffic flow and access for emergency vehicles.
Rhondda Cynon Taf Council’s Cabinet Member for Frontline Services Cllr Andrew Morgan explained, “The consultation is in response to an increasing number of comments received by the Council about the high number of commuters, shoppers and workers in the area parking during the day and into the evening. This creates severe parking pressure on residents.
“We hope that residents and business owners alike will come forward and give their views during the consultation process and hopefully we can assist them in alleviating their problems and concerns.”
A staffed exhibition to illustrate details of the proposals and to give people the opportunity to put their questions to council officers will be held at:
Pontypridd Museum on May 15th 10am-2pm / 4pm - 8pm
Taff Meadow Community Centre, Treforest on 21st May 21st 10am-2pm / 4pm-8pm
