Additional parking project

The council receive many requests for additional parking provision from residents of the towns and villages across the borough.

We do not have a statutory responsibility to provide parking solutions in residential roads and are not the highway authority but the impact that parking problems have on the local environment and resident’s quality of life is recognised.

In 2007 we developed a ‘Parking in Residential Areas programme' of parking improvement works which looked at 500 locations with reported parking issues. We have since completed 70 additional parking projects in these locations.

The council continues to fund additional parking projects providing 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.
