Regulation of Parking

Pay Parking is usually indicated by a sign on each approach road into the town which operates pay parking.

Sign Indicating Pay Parking in Operation

Regulated Parking (Pay Parking) ensures that there is an adequate turnover of car spaces for people to do business/pleasure within a town.  In order to regulate parking, a parking fee is applied.  The town is divided into separate parking zones and tariffs/fees.

Usually, a town centre will have a maximum stay of two hours to ensure that there is a more regular turnover of spaces, as these spaces are more in demand.  On the outer zones of a town, the maximum stay will be longer, usually a  three hour maximum stay applies and the tariff/fee is normally be cheaper.

Long term parking is also provided where people working in a town or visiting the town for a day can park for a tariff/fee all day.
