Pavement parking to be 'illegal': Warning issued as biggest change in decade hits drivers

One authority has warned the estimated cost for introducing the scheme could be around £670,000.

The DfT report said: “A national pavement parking prohibition would be the most significant change to English parking law in several decades, and local authorities would need to undertake a substantial amount of work to prepare for it.

“In many areas pavement parking is essential, so it is important that it should continue to be allowed where this is the case.

“Each local authority would need to survey their road network, identify areas where pavement parking is routine, determine where it remains necessary, pass resolutions to permit it, and place traffic signs and bay markings to inform drivers where pavement parking is still permitted.
