  • Shepway District Council Sandgate Parking Consultation Notice on Granville Parade
    Article: Jun 29, 2016

    The news is... there is no news.

    The proposals for a Sandgate Granville Parade / Castle Road CPZ with 2 hour parking restriction for those without a permit (8am-8pm every day of the year) was opposed by a huge number of local residents, your Lib Dem team, businesses and Sandgate Parish Council.

    The formal consulation held by Shepway District Council on the scheme received hundreds of objections (we know, having handed in many of them ourselves!) and apparently very few comments in support.
