Mike Weatherley, the Conservative Member of Parliament for Hove and Portslade, is backing a petition by Central Hove Conservatives, Cllr Andrew Wealls and Adam Love, to open up Norton Road car park to residents with parking permits and the public on weekends.
Following complaints from traders and residents, Central Hove councillor Andrew Wealls, and conservative candidate for Central Hove Adam Love, have started a campaign to make use of the frequently empty Norton Road multi-story car park. Andrew and Adam wish to allow residents within parking zone N to use the car park seven days a week and to offer free parking for everyone on the weekends. Local traders welcome the idea and hope that it will bring a boost in trade for the area. To sign the petition, click here.
Commenting, Mike said: “Opening up the Norton Road multi-story is a brilliant idea that has my full support. It’s absolutely crazy that the car park sits virtually empty at night, when nearby residents struggle to find a space. I have been contacted by a number of Hove and Portslade residents who have been put off by the Green administration’s latest parking changes which mean that, for example, you now have to pay to park everywhere in Central Hove on a Sunday.”
