Proposals to free-up road space for parking

More than 250 extra parking spaces are being proposed on roads across Plymouth following an 18-month review of the city’s traffic restrictions. 

The review has been carried out to identify locations where restrictions can be safely removed to free-up road space and create more parking for residents, businesses and visitors.

Councillor Steve Ricketts, Cabinet Member for Transport and Housing Delivery, said: “We want to make sure we’re doing everything we can to help people get around the city while ensuring safety for all road users. As part of this we’ve been looking at traffic restrictions such as double yellow lines to check they are all still needed.

“We’ve identified a number of locations where restrictions are no longer appropriate, when assessed against the latest design and safety standards. We want to make as much road space available as possible for those who live in, work in and visit Plymouth.”

The proposals will be subject to public consultation and advertised soon in the local press, as well as on notices displayed on the relevant roads.
