Staff thanked for feedback during car parking consultation

Many thanks to all staff for the feedback they provided during the month-long car parking consultation, which closed on Friday (12 April).

More than 300 emails were received on the proposed changes outlined in a business case. The disproportionately higher price increase for lower grade staff, the short introduction timescale before full costs apply, and the availability of flexible working and daily/seasonal permits for occasional use, continued to be the areas which attracted a larger number of comments throughout the consultation.

Generally, there was good feedback about the proposed exclusion zone and acknowledgement that the current policy has to change to manage the number of cars accessing the University on a daily basis.

More than 200 staff also attended three events held during the consultation, where questions about the proposals were answered by Graham Galbraith (Vice-Chancellor), Bernie Topham (Chief Operating Officer & Deputy Vice-Chancellor), Fiona Bell (Director of Estates & Campus Services) and Becky Hopkins (Deputy Director of HR People Services).

The consultation feedback will now be fully considered and recommendations made to UEB about any changes to the draft policy. All staff will then be communicated with about the final arrangements.
