    Council Parking restriction question

    Council Parking restriction question 27th Nov 17 at 7:22 PM


    Which scenario is correct?
    1) I arrive at 5:05PM. After the 1 hour limit it is after 6pm, therefore I can stay parked there until the restriction starts again tomorrow.
    2) I arrive at 5:55PM. As it is before 6pm I am still limited to one hour parking, so must return by 6:55PM

    It really is quite simple:

    Outside the hours of 8am to 6pm Monday to Saturday there are no restrictions.

    So which one of my scenario''s is correct? The above rules could be arguably correct for either?

    No they can't.

    If you want to discuss this further, the perhaps The Money Savers Arms is a better place.

    If you park at any time from 5pm, then you can stay there for as long as you want up to 9am the following day

    I have always believed this as well, but someone told me the restriction applies if you first park within the time restriction, and a traffic warden logs your reg. I think they are wrong, but wouldn't be surprised if a warden agreed with them!
    I'll carry on as I have done previously, thanks for your help.

    you could try asking the parking control dept in the council what they consider the answer to be....

    Thanks I've emailed my council''s parking department. It'll be interesting to see the reply assuming they do respond. I will update.

    Surely the point is the traffic warden won't come by after 6pm.

    Most likely true, however opposite this restriction is a single yellow line with a restriction until 6:30pm. So it's possible they may patrol until then?

    Scenario 1 would be correct.

    I live in a street with similar signs (albeit 2 hours rather than 1) and have never had a problem parking less than 2 hours before the restriction ends up until 2 hours after the restriction begins on the following day.
