Explains what a controlled parking zone (CPZ) is, CPZ location maps, why they are used and what the signs look like that signify that you are about to enter a CPZ. Also why parking in a CPZ may be temporarily suspended.
A Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) is an area where parking is only allowed on certain parts of the road for a limited time unless you have a permit.
Read more about who is allowed to park in a CPZ with a permit.
There will be signs on the side of the road to let you know how long you can park for without a permit.
Take a look at these signs and what they mean.
Controlled Parking Zones (CPZs) reduce traffic and parking congestion for residents who live in or near to town centres or tourist/visitor hotspots. A CPZ aims to:
CPZs can apply to whole parts of a town, whereas a Residents Parking Scheme (RPS)normally applies to individual streets.

From time to time we may have to stop people parking in parking bays for a number of reasons including road works or large delivery vehicles.
If we do this, we will normally give seven days’ notice (unless it is an emergency). Notice will be given by erecting warning notices on site adjacent to the affected parking bays. Within the stated times you will not be able to park in the bay(s) that are affected.
Please note: If you are parked in a suspended bay (for example: the bay is suspended whilst you are away from the address), your vehicle will be moved to a safe location as near as possible to its original location.
