In total, there will be 174 new parking spaces covered by 17 meters.
Councillors will be asked to implement all the proposed schemes as previously advertised, except Newton Road which will be deferred until the autumn to enure the review of the Shiphay controlled parking zone has been completed.
Lymington Road and Magdalene Road will also offer free parking on Sunday.
The recommendations are due to be discussed at a meeting of the transport working party.
It comes before a promised Bay-wide review of car parking charges which is due to start before the end of the year.
Councillors have recognised traders have struggled as a result of the current policy and the wider economic climate.
There have been complaints that tariffs are too high and very confusing, with different rates in different areas.
Cllr Robert Excell, executive lead for safer communities and transport, which also includes parking in the Bay, confirmed the council still hoped to carry out the wider parking review later in the year.
He said: "All interested parties will have the opportunity to have their say."
