Resident parking bays

Resident parking bays will be enforced at all times, except on Christmas Day.

*Sunday controls: this indicates that on the bank and public holidays noted, resident bays will be enforced as if it was a Sunday. If a resident bay is controlled on a Sunday you may receive a PCN if you park in it on a bank or public holiday without a valid resident permit. If the resident bay is not controlled on a Sunday, parking in it on a bank or public holiday without a valid resident permit is allowed. A sign stating 'Resident permit holders only' indicates that the bay is controlled every day.

Other permit holder bays

Bays that are marked for specialist permit holders only (e.g. disabled, doctor, hospital) will be enforced at all times.

If you park in one of these bays without displaying the relevant permit you may be issued with a parking ticket (PCN).

Double yellow lines

Double yellow lines will continue to be controlled at all times.

Single yellow lines

Single yellow line restrictions do not apply on public and bank holidays - except where restrictions would normally apply on a Sunday. Check for yellow parking signs by the roadside if you're not sure.

You should not park adjacent to a dropped kerb, even if this is marked by a single yellow line.
