This website is managed by Dani Ahrens, a longstanding Hanover resident, with contributions and support from other people who live and work in the area.
It aims to be a resource for anyone who would like to see our local streets transformed into more open, accessible and safe spaces for everyone to be.
The consultation in December 2016 on a controlled parking zone scheme for Hanover and Elm Grove is an opportunity to think about different ways to use our shared street space.
The council’s proposed scheme is far from perfect, and does not include many valuable proposals already suggested by local residents. We still have an opportunity to change it, by participating in the consultation and lobbying councillors – If a majority of residents say yes to parking controls, councillors will vote on the final design of the scheme in March.
However, without some form of controlled parking scheme, our streets will remain clogged with cars.
If you would like to see this change, please:
- Find out more: Check out our links and attend the public meetings and exhibition in December
- Respond to the council’s consultation – say yes to controlled parking
- Include your suggestions for improving the scheme
- Share your thoughts: Feel free to use the resources on this website, or make your own posters and leaflets to help ensure everyone knows that we can all have a say, whether or not we are car owners
- Contribute your own ideas and images – just comment on any post, fill in our contact form, or email us. Please be patient if we don’t respond immediately – we are all volunteers.
