Proposed Pay & Display

Closed 1 Mar 2018

Opened 8 Feb 2018


Officers have conducted a review of existing local area limited-waiting restrictions, such as single-yellow-line restrictions and bays with short-duration free parking, in the context of considering more effective management of parking for that area.

Limited waiting restrictions are difficult to effectively enforce with the limited number of enforcement Officers and the resource-intensity of having to repeatedly revisit, or wait at, a particular restriction to assess parking compliance.

On street Pay and Display bays provide a short-stay, high-turnover parking solution that is straightforward and efficient to enforce. Removing the scope for abusing the limited waiting restrictions typically provides greater availability of parking spaces, which is particularly beneficial in locations where there is a high customer-base (e.g. local shopping areas).

Objections to the proposals, together with the grounds on which they are made, should be sent in writing to C J Brooks, Head of Legal and Democratic Services, Reading Borough Council, Civic Offices, Bridge Street, Reading, RG1 2LU quoting ref: 635543  by no later than 1 March 2018. If you wish to send objections by e-mail please send them to
