Purpose:

Decision to make permanent enforcement of parking at Market Place, Pedlars and Pitt Lane car parks in the Town of Swaffham, Norfolk.

Decision:

That the Council agrees to make permanent a 2hr time limited and enforced parking restriction at The Market Place, Pedlars and Pitt Lane Car parks in the Town of Swaffham, Norfolk, under authority of the Breckland District Council parking orders of 2014.

Reasons for the decision:

A parking trial has now run its course but was extended to ensure that suitable outcomes had been met and more recently put on hold to support local trading in the light of the Covid -19 pandemic.
