“Car parking is a complex and emotive area. At Rushcliffe Borough Council, we believe its success is based on partnership with users, businesses and stakeholders. Car parks that are tailored to meet the needs of local areas have a significant role to play in the economic and social vibrancy of Rushcliffe.”

Immediate aims win the plan are to:

Improve car park lighting

Review the free long stay/12 hours parking at Keyworth and provide short stay provision

Introduction of new payment methods, e.g., “Pay by Phone” option

Work with Chargemaster to complete installation of charge points across Rushcliffe car parks

Review alterations to the layout of Rushcliffe Country Park car parking area and implement

  Musters Road: Closed at Melton Road junction for SIX weeks for traffic light replacement

Review and implement revised evening tariff policy

Review the demand and process for offering external parking permits more widely

Identify the car parks to be placed under a parking places order and complete the necessary infrastructure to bring them to regulatory standards

Link in with Nottinghamshire County Council’s personal travel plan project to promote the use of active and sustainable travel to improve air quality in West Bridgford hotspots

Review permit cost and number of season tickets being issued for Rushcliffe Country Park annually

Among the loner term targets set out in the document is a review of West Bridgford car parks in-line with the town centre masterplan and digital High Street proposals, review long stay provision in West Bridgford district centre which is ‘well served by buses and has good walking and cycling connectivity.’
