Consultation description

Consultation asking whether a change of existing pavement parking legislation should occur.

We are proposing 3 options:

  1. Improving the Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) process, under which local authorities can already prohibit pavement parking.

  2. A legislative change to allow local authorities with civil parking enforcement powers to enforce against ‘unnecessary obstruction of the pavement’.

  3. A legislative change to introduce a London-style pavement parking prohibition throughout England.

An MP3 audio file of the consultation questionnaire is available.
