Residential Parking

Obstructive parking in residential areas is a serious problem of which the council is very much aware. We have no powers to restrict the number of vehicles that residents own, nor where people park vehicles on the public highway where there are no restrictions in place, other than introducing restrictions of waiting (double yellow lines), limited waiting restrictions (single yellow lines) or verge & footway prohibition. The only option available to the council is to increase the number of off street parking spaces, but this can only be done if suitable land is available, and the council allocates funds for the construction costs.

A list of streets that suffer the most parking congestion is maintained. Each of these have been assessed, scored and ranked. Finance that has previously been made available enabled priority to be given to the worst affected areas first.

There are also a number of garages available to rent in many areas of the town. For more information about renting a garage see the link on the right.
