Volume 461: debated on Thursday 14 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport when he expects to publish guidance under the Traffic Management Act 2004 on enforcement over parking on grass verges; and if he will make a statement. (141188)

All local authorities outside London already have the power to make Traffic Regulation Orders which can, among other things, ban parking on grass verges. It is for the local authority to put a ban in place where they consider it appropriate. Pavement parking (which includes parking on grass verges) is banned in London apart from where signs indicate otherwise.
