Enquire about parking controls
Parking controls are introduced to manage parking on the public highway where relevant to do so.
There are two types of on-street parking controls:
- ‘Prohibited’ parking - yellow lines or clearways where it is an offence to park on the adjacent carriageway, pavement or verge
- ‘Permitted’ parking - parking bays, for example; pay and display or resident only zones
Parking controls may be introduced to:
- ensure access is available to emergency services vehicles
- keep the strategic road network clear of obstructions, especially during peak hours, for example; single yellow lines
- provide parking spaces, for example; on-street pay and display or resident’s parking zones
