Controlled Parking Zone for Worthing set to be introduced

A new Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) for parts of Worthing is due to come into effect later in the summer.

The CPZ is an area of streets where parking is controlled through the day.

Residents, local businesses and their visitors are given priority to park by purchasing permits or vouchers.

This can also improve road safety, reduce congestion and prevent obstructions to private driveways by removing indiscriminate parking.

Worthing County Local Committee approved the zone last year, which will include the following roads:

Ashwood Close, Bashfords Lane, Broadwater Road, Brighton Road, Cecilian Avenue, Centrecourt Close, Centrecourt Road, Chatham Road, Chesswood Close, Chesswood Road, Chester Avenue, Church Walk, Colebrook Close, Dawes Avenue, Dawes Close, Devonport Road, Evelyn Road, Garrick Road, Ivy Arch Road, King Edward Avenue, Livesay Crescent, Lyndhurst Road, Marston Road, Meadow Road, Navarino Road, Osmonde Close, Pendine Avenue, Sackville Road, Selbourne Road, Stuart Close, Ten Acres and Westbourne Avenue.

New signs and lines are now being put in place by West Sussex County Council and preparatory work is set to continue for at least another month.
Residents affected by the changes will receive a letter from the County Council outlining how to obtain parking permits and where they need to get them from.

Bob Smytherman, Chairman of Worthing CLC, said:

“As soon as we know the date when the parking zone comes into effect, we will write to all residents affected.

“We apologise for the delay it has taken to get to this point, but it has meant we have a better scheme as a result.”

Worthing Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Clive Roberts, said: “I, along with many residents, am glad to see the planned extension of the Controlled Parking Zone.

“Parking is never an easy subject or activity, but this system maintains a level playing field for everyone helping to cut down abuse, keeping roads clearer and safer.”
