Yellow line restrictions

Avoid parking on a yellow line, because yellow line restrictions will still apply on these four days (25, 26,27, 28 December 2021 and 1 and 3 January 2022). This is because yellow lines are situated at locations where parked vehicles could be a hazard or cause an obstruction.

Parking bays

If you leave your car in a parking bay that is only available for part of the day, you should check the signs carefully to avoid parking there when the yellow line restrictions come into force.

Driveways, specialist bays and dropped kerbs

You should not obstruct driveways or park unlawfully in specialist bays, such as doctors' bays and mandatory disabled bays. If you do, you might be penalised.

Also, you should not park across dropped kerbs. These are found on virtually every street corner and allow disabled people and parents with pushchairs to safely cross the road.

Motorists who obstruct driveways or park unlawfully in doctors' bays or mandatory disabled bays could also be penalised.

Car parks

All car parks will operate as normal Sunday enforcement on:

  • Sunday 26 December 2021 (Boxing Day)
  • Monday 27 December 2021 (Bank holiday)
  • Saturday 1 January 2022 (New Year’s Day) 

There will be normal parking enforcement in operation on all other days across the festive period including:

  • Friday 24 December 2021 (Christmas Eve)
  • Wednesday 29 December 2021
  • Thursday 30 December 2021
  • Friday 31 December 2021 (New Year’s Eve)
