Update: Kingston Prison

Councillor Darren Sanders has asked that the plans to build at Kingston Prison deal with parking in the area.

The plans by developer City and Country will see 280 private flats built on the site. The Council does not want a hotel or museum there.

Darren has asked that any plans deal with cars likely to be parked on nearby roads, especially those without parking permits such as Kimbolton, Lichfield and Langstone Roads, as well as Hayling, St Prians and Chasewater Avenues. The Council does not want to do this, as it says it is happy with the level of parking provided. It has told the developer, though, that everyone visiting residents there must park in the new development.

Darren said: "Lynne and I oppose the sheer number of homes being put forward. On top of the development at St Mary's and the 388 homes at St James' the Council is budgeting for, this is too many for our crowded roads. I am unhappy that the Council has not encouraged a hotel or museum on the site, which will boost our economy and affect our roads less."
