Start a Parking Scheme
Introduction of a Residents' Permit Parking Scheme
To request a Residents’ Permit Parking Scheme to be started in your area, contact the Traffic Advisory Section directly at the address below or through your elected public representative.
Send the request in writing, stating:
- Your name and address
- The full address of the street or road you are suggesting for the Pay-and-Display and Residents’ Permit Parking Scheme. Requests must be made by residents of the street or road, or may be made by a public representative on behalf of residents
- Supporting evidence, which may take the form of a number of written requests or a signed petition, indicating names and addresses of 25% of households on the street or road. Supporting evidence must be included
This request is then sent to the Traffic Advisory Group for examination. A report by the area traffic engineer will recommend a scheme subject to certain criteria being met.
Pay-and-Display and Residents’ Permit Parking Schemes are subject to the agreement of the residents concerned, listed on the Register of Electors, who will be sent a ballot to determine their view; and will be introduced if a majority of the voting residents vote in favour of the scheme. The process takes approximately seven months from the date of the ballot.
