Waiting restrictions

​The purpose of waiting restrictions is to prohibit parking at key locations to improve safety by providing suitable visibility for all road users, especially those with disabilities, wheel chair users and parents with pushchairs. They also provide unobstructed access for emergency and public service vehicles.

As part of the Council’s commitment to road safety, unsafe locations in need of parking restrictions, are either identified by area wide studies or concerns reported by residents. These locations are added to an ongoing programme for implementation, subject to on site investigations, support by emergency services, suitability, consultations and available resources.



All plans and information are supplied for guidance only. All features are to be checked on site as changes may occur.
