Parking at Derwenthorpe

Here are the results of the parking survey conducted between 24th June 2017 and 14th July 2017. 

We are presenting the results by quarter as there may be different problems and solutions in each quarter. We will also present the results for the whole of Derwenthorpe. 

Our thanks to all the residents who completed this survey. We are now in negotiation with JRHT to investigate solutions that will help alleviate your problems. We'll keep you updated via this website and at residents' meetings.
