There are too few parking spaces on my street, can the council introduce parking bays?

Question:
There are too few parking spaces on my street, can the council introduce parking bays?
Answer:

Parking outside your home is not a legal entitlement unless you are within a permit parking scheme where road space is reserved for residents who hold valid permits. Unfortunately, if you live in a town centre or built up area, where parking is at a premium, people parking outside your property are not doing anything illegal unless they are doing so in contravention of an existing traffic regulation order such as double yellow lines or against the rules of the Highway Code.

We do not have a funding stream available to consider introducing parking bays.

If your road is privately owned it is up to the residents or owner to put in place and enforce their own parking restrictions, you can search for a road status on our road status map.
