TOWN leaders are planning to make their decision about a parking permits plan at a meeting tonight (Monday).

Members of Berkhamsted Town Council are due to decide whether they should release cash to pay for maps to be used in a new public consultation on the controversial issue.

Their meeting, which is open to the public, will be held at 7.30pm at Berkhamsted Civic Centre.

Under the current plan, residents-only permits would be drawn up in two parking zones around the town’s railway station and Charles Street.

The maps, which would cost about £4,000, would demonstrate where the new permits would be.

Neighbours would then be shown the maps as part of a public consultation due to be held in September.

Councillors hope the permits will make parking easier for householders by restricting commuter parking – but some people fear permits would reduce the number of spaces available to them.
