The main intended advantage of a Residents’ Parking Scheme is that it will keep out parked vehicles not belonging to residents.
Residents in a controlled zone do require a permit which can only be issued by the Highways Authority. Visitors also require a permit; typically a household will have one visitor permit. The ‘controlled’ bays are marked out and time plates erected.
There is much interest in Ruddington for schemes, and the likelihood of more parking restrictions in the village centre will inevitably increase demand for residents’ parking to be controlled.
If you are interested in the idea we have an information sheet which is strongly recommended. You can obtain a copy from our website and look under ‘Around and about’ then ‘Transport’, or by contacting the Parish Council Office (see front page) or by calling in 9.30 – 12.30 Monday –Friday.
