In the Portswood Park area, south of St Denys Road and west of Thomas Lewis Way, apart from some exceptions, generally there also wasn’t support for a permit scheme.

The council will be further considering areas where results were less conclusive, and is to “progress to the next stage of formal consultation” a permit parking scheme for the following roads, where overall survey response indicated support:

  • Arnold Road
  • Parts of Belmont Road
  • Bowden Lane
  • Brickfield Road
  • Northcote Road
  • Osborne Road North
  • Portswood Road between Grosvenor Road and Arnold Road junctions
  • Somerset Road
  • Welbeck Avenue, east of Grosvenor Road
