These are our key parking strategies and policies.

Annual Parking Reports

Annual Parking Reports detail our enforcement activities under Part 6 of the Traffic Management Act 2004.

Parking strategy

The Council aims to deliver an efficient service that provides fair, easy, and safe parking across St Albans.  Our responsibilities include on-street parking provision, car parks, civil parking enforcement, residential parking, and managing parking demand.

This strategy is designed to help shape, manage, and deliver the Council’s vision for parking, and set out how we manage kerbside space and off-street car parks. The aim is to reduce the impact of parking on the environment, while continuing to provide essential parking space to support our local businesses, residents, and visitors.

Number of on-street parking spaces

In most cases, we can only provide an estimated number of spaces. These are calculated using lengths of marked bays or roads and can include areas across driveways. However, the figures exclude yellow lines, zig-zag markings and bus stops.
