The beginning of the end for pavement parking in england?
New proposals to tackle pavement parking have been set out by Transport Secretary, Grant Shapps MP.
A 12-week consultation due this summer will consider how a nationwide ban on pavement parking enforced by local authorities might work, allowing for any necessary exceptions for pavement parking where needed, and how a tailored approach may be required in rural and suburban areas.
This follows the Transport Select Committee enquiry, to which Living Streets and its supporters were key contributors, calling for a nationwide ban.
Pavement Parking's Days are numbered.
