This page gives more detail on how we are proposing to run the new Residents Parking Zone (RPZ). For further information about how this is likely to affect you, view individual pages for residents, visitors, businesses and regular local road users.
Changes in road markings
In order to prioritise on-street parking for residents, we will mark out parking bays where road space allows. Where parking would be obstructive or unsafe, we'll add double yellow line restrictions.
Parking bays will either be for permit holders only, or bays will be 'dual use'. If a bay is dual use, it will be available for unlimited parking by permit holders or up to two hours by non-permit holders.
Motorbike parking will not be affected. Motorbikes will be able to park in any permit holder space, whether or not the owner has a permit.

Times of operation
While we plan to operate the zone from 8am to 6pm every day, yellow line parking restrictions and marked disabled bays will operate at all times (unless indicated otherwise by on-site signage).
Permits are only valid within the zone for which they were issued. This means that a permit issued for the proposed Oldfield Park and Westmoreland zone could not be used in a permit parking bay in neighbouring Zone 18, covering Bear Flat. Signs next to parking bays will state which zone the bay is in.
