Volume 707: debated on Wednesday 4 February 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether the fixed daily parking charging regime operating in Newcastle has all the requisite authorisations from the Secretary of State; and, if so, how that relates the original authorisation referring specifically to a traffic regulation order which was revoked in its entirety in 2001; and, if not, what measures they propose to regularise the matter. [HL1006]

Following requests from Newcastle City Council, the Department for Transport has authorised a series of signs for the fixed daily parking charging scheme in Newcastle.  It is the local highway authority’s responsibility to ensure that its parking regimes, including any related traffic orders and signs, are kept up to date.
