The Council has big plans to improve the car park in Regency Square, which is often almost empty at present. The aim is to attract more users and the cost of the imporvements is to be met from the extra revenue.
Traffic lights will be installed at the south west corner of the square. This will allow vehicles leaving the car park to turn left or right into King's Road.
The car park itself will be made more secure with access for ticket holders only. Once inside, dirvers will find improved lighting and signage.
When the car park is busy, queues at the entrance block the west side of the square. Memebrs of the Regency Square Area Society recently met Councillor Ian Davey who has agreed to look at the possibility of removing some existing on-street parking to solve this problem.
Work on the imporvements is expected to start in April and be completed by the end of 2012.
