MENDIP District Council has decided that its decision-making body will discuss future car parking provision in the district in two stages.

Cabinet was due to consider the Draft Car Park Strategy 2018 – 2022 as a whole on May 21.

The council announced this week that the strategy will now be split into two parts "as an outcome of recent discussions and feedback from key stakeholders".

The Car Park Charges Review will go to Cabinet for consideration on May 21, while the Car Park Strategy is proposed to go to Cabinet in September 2018.

In a statement, the council said: "We engaged with town and city councils and the chambers of commerce and as such have taken on-board their comments and listened to their feedback. We will ensure that Cabinet have a copy of comments received that linked to the original draft Car Park Strategy 2018 – 2022 prior to the Cabinet meeting on May 21."
