We have campaigned against pavement parking for years.

The Transport Select Committee has published its report on pavement parking calling on the Government to stop stalling and introduce a ban. 

Vehicles parked on pavements are forcing people with pushchairs or children to walk unsafely in the road. And disabled and older people can feel unsafe walking down their own street.

We are now calling on the Government to act urgently on the findings of this report, which is founded on thorough investigation and input from the general public.

Pavement Parking's Days are numbered.

Pavement parking

Thanks to all 4,010 of you who sent us your thoughts on pavement parking

On 19 June, our Policy and Research Coordinator, Dr Rachel Lee, went before the Transport Select Committee to give oral evidence on the impact on pedestrians of pavement parking.

In her evidence she included several of the thousands of personal testimonies we received from our supporters - the power of which was noted by members of the committee afterwards.

You can watch the session in full in our video here.

Pavements for People

What's the problem?

  1. Why is it a problem
  2. Who is responsible for enforcing pavement parking bans?
  3. Is the government going to change the legislation on pavement parking?
  • Pavement parking is a pain for everyone, but it’s particularly an issue for those with mobility problems, parents with pushchairs and older people, who may fear leaving their homes as they feel unsafe. As well as making it difficult for people to use their streets, it can also cause substantial damage to pavements. This costs councils tens of thousands of pounds each year to repair. 

  • In most areas your local council or civil enforcement officers contracted on their behalf are responsible for enforcing pavement parking bans. 

  • In London, pavement parking is prohibited unless it says it is allowed. The government does not support changing the law to bring the rest of England, and Wales, in line with London

    However, Simon Hoare MP has tabled a second Private Members’ Bill to Parliament to extend a ban across England and Wales unless specifically exempted.
