Traffic Regulation Orders and parking consultations

Parking restrictions such as double or single yellow lines and resident parking schemes help us to address local parking problems. 

We have to introduce these through a defined legal process called a Traffic Regulation Order. This includes consulting the public and arranging for the physical work to put restrictions in place. 

It’s a lengthy process and we have to find funding to cover the costs involved.

Here is information to help you request a new restriction or a review of an existing one, check which schemes are already in place and which we are working on.

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

We receive regular requests from residents to review or introduce parking controls. We have introduced a ranking system so that we can prioritise these. Which schemes to introduce and their order is decided by the Car Parking Advisory Panel - a cross political party advisory forum. More information about the panel.

For further information on the process for introducing parking controls and the impact for those living in a controlled area, please see the PDF documents below.

To request a new parking control or to ask for a review of an existing control, please contact us with details of the location and issue.
