Councils have had their budgets significantly reduced over the last few years and this is set to continue. This year alone we are having to make significant savings to make sure we live within our means.
Somerset Highways looks after 6,600km of roads in the county, and has to very carefully prioritise works in line with the limited budgets available. This involves making some very difficult decisions to make sure that our resources are directed where there is clear evidence of significant problems or incidents.
Requests for changes to parking restrictions will therefore no longer be dealt with individually, but will form part of a wider town or village parking review. The parking review programme is being developed and we will hold individual requests on file to be considered as part of the wider town or village review.
