Is Key decision?: Yes


Following investigations and formal public consultation it is proposed to make the following three Traffic Regulation Orders to introduce various parking restrictions:


  • Lancashire County Council (Various Roads, Preston City Area) (Revocation and Introduction Of Parking Places) Order 202*.
  • Lancashire County Council (Various Roads, Preston City Area) (Revocation, Prohibition and Restriction Of Waiting, Prohibition Of Loading, Limited Waiting Parking Places and Disabled Parking Places) Order 202*.
  • Lancashire County Council (Lancaster and Preston City) (Amendment To Permit Parking Provisions) Order 202*.


The proposals are to:


  • Amend the current Permit Parking Order to define exact residential address points for eligible properties.
  • Where possible increase highway space that could be utilised for the use of 'Permit Parking' creating a further 158 spaces across the Preston permit areas.
  • Increase the availability of short term on-street Pay & Display Parking within close proximity to the City Centre creating a further 30 spaces.
  • Introduce a new BG1 Permit Zone in the Broadgate Area covering Grafton Street, Lauderdale Street, Hind Street and a section of South Meadow Lane.
  • Extend the current DP1 Permit Zone to include Church Avenue, Fishwick Parade and Beaconsfield Avenue.
  • Remove the restrictions within the St Mark's area and Queens Road areas and introduce new restrictions to assist with dangerous/obstructive parking and the free flow of traffic.
  • Amend the Pay & Display charges from Monday-Saturday 8am-6pm to Monday-Sunday 8am-6pm.
  • Increase the Pay and Display tariffs.


In addition to the Permit Zones and City Centre Pay & Display reviews, the proposal also redefines the descriptions of the existing restrictions in the area to allow for effective enforcement along with introducing some additional No Waiting and No Loading restrictions where parking would compromise safety. The measures contained in the three proposed Orders form a comprehensive suite of measures and consideration of all three Orders together is advised.


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


The Cabinet approved the recommendation(s) as set out in the report.
