Additional parking projects

The council receive many requests for additional parking provision from residents of the towns and villages across the borough’s 245 square miles.

Although the council does not have a statutory responsibility to provide parking solutions in residential roads and is not the highway authority, the impact that parking problems can have on the local environment and resident’s quality of life is recognised. Consequently, the council has investigated up to 500 locations with reported parking issues and in 2007 developed a ‘Parking in Residential Areas programme of parking improvement works. By the end of 2022, 70 additional parking projects had been completed.

From 2023, the council will continue to fund additional parking projects providing the street is ranked within the top 125 locations on the current Parking in Residential Areas programme and one or more of the following conditions are met:

  • electric vehicles will be able to charge from any new parking spaces constructed
  • parking spaces are designated for use by blue badge holders
  • the construction of new parking spaces would bring an environmental improvement by replacing muddy and rutted grass verges damaged by parking
  • new parking spaces would help alleviate access issues for waste and recycling collection vehicles

The projects investigated and schemes implemented to date are highlighted on the Parking in Residential Areas programme below.
