A residents parking scheme is set to be introduced in a part of Lancaster next month.

The scheme, which is being introduced by Lancashire County Council and Lancaster Council, will start in the Fairfield area of Lancaster on March 1.

Formal consultation on detailed plans designed by the county council was carried out earlier this year, with letters being sent to 606 residents and businesses. 215 residents responded in favour of the scheme, and 70 objected, with feedback prompting a number of small changes to the scheme.

The scheme will be known as Fairfield Zone J.

The cost of an annual residents’ parking permit will be £40.

There will be no restriction on the number of permits per home.

Visitor cards will also be available at a cost of £1 per card with each card allowing 10 calendar day visits.

A maximum of two visitor cards per dwelling can be issued at any one time, the Lancaster Council said.

Information packs have been delivered to all properties in the parking zone and you can also download the information leaflet here.
