Controlled Parking Zones and areas


A Controlled Parking Area (CPA) or Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) is an area where special parking restrictions apply

virus

In line with the Government's roadmap to recovery, the free parking Covid-19 permit scheme for NHS staff, health and social care workers and NHS volunteers (critical care workers) ends on Monday 21 June 2021. Normal parking charges apply from this date.

Controlled parking helps reduce and control the problems of long stay parking by commuters and office workers, which then helps create space for short stay visitors, such as shoppers and tourists as well as residents and their visitors. 

The zones/areas have many similar parking restrictions to those found when parking on the streets in other places, and you may need a permit before you can park.

Pay and display bays and permit holder only areas are restricted between certain hours (please refer to signage). Parking is free outside of operational hours and on bank holidays.
