Parking restrictions, such as road markings and signs, need a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) to make them legally enforceable.
Often, restrictions such as double yellow lines, are enough to prevent parking issues. In cases where these restrictions are not effective, legal TRO's are necessary.
We receive many requests to legally enforce parking on double yellow lines. Unfortunately, the legal procedure would be too costly and time consuming to get a TRO for every case.
For this reason, the Council has adopted a policy whereby TRO's are implemented when there is clear evidence of a road safety concern or restricted traffic flow along a road.
