Wokingham Borough Council implement new residents parking protocol


Wokingham Borough Council has recently implemented it’s new residents parking protocol. A new protocol was adopted after the previous policy did not consider parking capacity issues on some of the boroughs roads.

Any road can be considered for a residents’ parking permit scheme and can be applied for by residents. However, the decision to implement such a scheme is based on evidence that there is a genuine parking problem for residents that is being made worse by the parking of vehicles not associated with the residential properties within the road.

The hours of operation are based on a road by road basis, taking into account the local conditions of that road and its surroundings. Various hours of operation are used within the borough, depending upon where the permit scheme is running.

The current set of standard charges for permits is proposed to remain the same at £30, with the exception of a carers’ permit which is now waived. Currently carer permits are charged at either £5 or £10 depending on the residents parking scheme. It is proposed to waive this charge considering equality for all vulnerable members of the public.
