The Government has started a 3 month consultation on whether a change of existing pavement parking legislation should take place. Consultation will end on 22nd November 2020.
They are proposing 3 options:
- Improving the Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) process, under which local authorities can already prohibit pavement parking.
- A legislative change to allow local authorities with civil parking enforcement powers to enforce against ‘unnecessary obstruction of the pavement’.
- A legislative change to introduce a London-style pavement parking prohibition throughout England.
I would urge you to take part in this consultation. The link to the consultation is below.
The options that are being looked at are:
Option 1: to rely on improvements to the existing TRO system
Option 2: to allow local authorities with CPE powers to enforce against ‘Unnecessary obstruction of the pavement’
Option 3: a national pavement parking prohibition
What will happen next?
A summary of responses will be published within 3 months of the consultation closing. Paper copies are available on request.
