Council plans to improve parking in St Albans
A project to improve parking in St Albans has been introduced after a resident survey has revealed a 13 percent decline in satisfaction levels.
The group has been organised by St Albans District Council after results from the new community survey held in 2012, showed residents' satisfaction levels with parking had declined in the last two years.
Online purchase of residents’ parking permits and payment for on-road parking by mobile phone will be introduced shortly, as part of this.
Other results show a five percent rise in residents satisfied with the council’s museums and leisure facilities, including theatres.
At a meeting on Thursday, cabinet heard that overall 70 percent of residents were satisfied with the way that the council runs things, which is a 16 percent increase on two years ago.
The community survey was posted to 4,000 randomly selected households across the district and was conducted between October 22 and December 7 last year. The results are based on the 1,331 responses received.
