Parking in Great Dunmow could be set for an overhaul if the weight of public opinion demands it, a senior councillor has told the Broadcast.
Proposals to adapt parking around the town centre, including introducing bays outside the New Street doctors’ surgery. along with a resident permit holder scheme on Star Lane, are already being put forward.
But on top of that, residents have been told they have the power to push for further changes necessary.
A whole town review, taking into consideration resident parking, parking outside of schools and car parks, for example, could be requested by Essex county councillor Susan Barker to the North Essex Parking Partnership (NEPP).
Cllr Barker, who is also deputy leader of Uttlesford District Council (UDC), told the Broadcast: “We do have issues with parking in Great Dunmow – in some places near the town centre people park in residential streets all day and it can get very annoying for residents, so we could get the NEPP to do a whole town review.”

Traffic Management Working Group meetings have started once again to find solutions for traffic problems in the town, and Cllr Barker believes these issues go hand-in-hand.
“If we make any changes to the traffic flow around the town it will have a knock-on effect for parking,” Cllr Barker added.
