ePetition details


We the undersigned petition the council to Implement a small amendment to the Saracens Event Day parking restrictions that will make a huge and positive impact on protecting us legitimate local residents from being fined for parking in our own streets on Event Days.

We understand that the purpose of these restrictions is to prevent non-residents from parking in our streets on Saracens Event Days.

However, unfortunately, as a result of trying to protect us, these restrictions are actually resulting in too many of us getting fined too often for parking in our own streets on Saracens Event Days.

We are not asking for these restrictions to be lifted, rather for them to be amended to better protect us residents from falling fowl of something that is meant to protect us, not penalise us.

We agree that the restrictions should be kept in place

We also agree and approve the current system whereby local residents can register their vehicles for free Event Day parking permits.

We further agree with the procedure followed that if a warden sees a vehicle parked without the Event Day permit, then a penalty ticket should be issued.

However, we propose the following amendment to ensure that we are better protected, not penalised:

If, for any reason a legitimate resident has not managed to organise a Saracens Event Day permit in time, or has not managed to renew the permit in time or has changed cars and not managed to change details with the council in time, or for any other reason has not managed to organise or alter a legitimate permit in time, and if that resident’s car is ticketed, then that resident will be given 14 days to register for an Event Day permit in the usual manner and with the usual paperwork required.

And if that he resident does indeed submit a valid and successful Event Day permit request within those 14 days, then that parking ticket will be automatically cancelled.
