Request a new parking restriction or review of an existing parking restriction

Parking restrictions such as double or single yellow lines and resident parking schemes help us to address local parking problems. However, to introduce such restrictions we must follow a defined legal process which results in the making of a local byelaw called a Traffic Regulation Order or Parking Places Order.  The process is outlined in more detail in the documents listed under the restrictions procedure available in PDF below. 

The Council receives many requests for new parking restrictions or changes to existing ones. below is the relevant documents which provides details of our procedures and how such restrictions may affect you.
