Parking: Public Holidays

Volume 505: debated on Tuesday 2 February 2010

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Transport what guidance his Department provided to local authorities on whether Saturday 26 December 2010 should be deemed to be a Saturday or a public holiday for the purposes of parking restrictions. (314828)

It has not been necessary for the Department to issue guidance to local authorities on this matter. Local authorities’ Traffic Regulation Orders will clearly indicate when parking restrictions are enforceable. Where they are enforceable, it is for individual authorities to determine how and when to enforce them, and to inform drivers effectively.
