Decision details

Controlled Parking Zone Policy

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


The Cabinet considered a report of the Executive Director (Neighbourhoods and Environment) proposing a new policy in respect of Controlled Parking Zones.




1. That the new policy for Controlled Parking Zones appended to the submitted report, be adopted.


2. That it be noted that the new criteria will not automatically be applied to existing Controlled Parking Zones, until such time as they are subject to a full, comprehensive review.


3. That it be noted that the financial implications of Controlled Parking Zones will vary depending on wider Council decisions on fees and charges, which will be considered on a case by case basis.


Reason for Decision:


This policy will enable the Council to respond effectively and efficiently to challenges associated with competing demands for parking capacity. It is anticipated that a robust policy will help the Council, elected representatives and all road users understand the criteria which must be met for a scheme to be taken forward.


Other Options:


This policy is a non-statutory document; however, its application is regulated by legislation and regulations. The Council could decide to vary some of the criteria set out in this policy.  However, further legal consideration would be required to understand the impact.
