Issue details

Lancashire County Council (Various Locations, Burnley, Chorley, Hyndburn, Lancaster, Pendle, Preston, Ribble Valley, South Ribble, West Lancashire and Wyre) (Revocation, Amendment to Permit Parking Provisions, Various Parking Restrictions and Electri

An Experimental Traffic Regulation Order was introduced to reserve sections of the highway solely for the use of Electric vehicles to wait whilst utilising the charge point facilities that had been provided as part of the council's electric charging infrastructure roll out.


The purpose of the experimental order was to ensure that the bays were available for use by drivers to charge their vehicles and to ensure once the charging is complete the bays were vacated to allow others to use the same facilities. The order was introduced as an experimental provision as these were the first electric charging parking places and it was important to ensure that the bays were of the correct length and the time limits were sufficient to meet driver's needs. Along with the provision of electric vehicle charging bays it has been necessary to make alterations and clarifications to adjacent parking restrictions, including simplifying and tidying up a number of discrepancies that have been identified.


This is deemed to be a Key Decision and the provisions of Standing Order C19 have been complied with.
