New measures to regulate parking near the university are to be introduced next week.
Members of the Norwich Highways Agency Committee approved plans to extend the UEA controlled parking zone (CPZ) in late July - and the extension is set to legally come into force on Monday 26 September.
People living in the area told the council that finding space to park was a problem. The extension is designed to resolve this.
Councillor Bert Bremner, cabinet member for planning and transport, said: “We have widely consulted people living in this area and listened to what they have to say about parking problems.
“This proposal is designed to pick up issues that were raised and regulate parking in these streets.”
The new extension will see the introduction of permit parking areas, a number of limited waiting bays where no permits are required, and small sections of double yellow lines. It would operate from Monday to Friday between 10am and 4pm, the same hours as the existing zone.
This project is funded from a £31,000 contribution from the university, required as part of the planning permission for additional buildings on the campus. Installation is proposed to coincide with the new academic year of the university.
The council will also be introducing a three-hour time limit in the western Eaton Park car park near the pitch and putt course.
This limit would apply between 9am and 3pm from Monday to Friday during the UEA academic year. There are no restrictions on parking at other times and there will be no charge for parking.
