Consultation begins - easier parking for care workers

Double yellow lines

What do you think? We're proposing to allow care and health professionals to park where there are yellow lines restrictions when visiting clients at home.

We've got exemption permits that currently allow care workers and other health care staff to use on-street pay and display, limited waiting and residents parking for no charge if they are delivering essential services to residents in their own homes.

But we're advertising a Traffic Regulation Order from today that proposes extending this exemption to include parking on single and double yellow lines – but only when alternative parking isn’t available.

It's because parking in some communities is limited, and that just adds to the stress of what's already a demanding job.

Here's the detail, and how to tell us what you think about the proposal.
