The purpose of the Residents Parking Policy is to allow officers
to deal with requests made for Residents Permit Parking Schemes in
a fair and consistent manner. It also gives residents and elected
members clear guidance on the criteria for considering Residents
Permit Parking Schemes.
Parking Permit Schemes provide car owning residents with a
reasonable chance of being able to park near to, but not
necessarily directly outside, their homes. On many streets some
residents own more than 1 car which places a severe strain on
parking availability and generates complaints from other residents.
Schemes should generally be considered on an area wide basis so
that they do not result in the initial problem being transferred
onto the adjacent highway network or into adjacent residential
The residents parking policy is currently under review and will be added as soon as possible.
