SLOWING DOWN: Consultation on Kings Langley parking changes delayed until after election

 Published on: 7th July 2024   |   By: Bryn Holmes   |   Category: Uncategorized

A planned public consultation on changes to parking charges in Kings Langley has been delayed.

Residents were originally given the chance to share their views on the alterations as of Monday, June 3 last month, but Dacorum Borough Council (DBC) has since stated that the consultation was to be delayed until after the recent general election on Thursday, July 4.

A DBC spokesperson said: “As the Parliamentary election has been called, the pre-election period (known as PERP) has commenced. Under these guidelines, we are unable to start the statutory consultation until after the election.

“The date the consultation will commence will be announced soon.”

Under the plans put forward by the council, drivers parking in the centre of the High Street between 8am and 6pm would be charged 80p for 30 minutes and £1.50 for an hour, with no return within two hours. Free parking would still be available on the far ends of the High Street, but only for 30 minutes.

At the two car parks in the village, all-day free parking will be reduced to four hours only.
