Residents in certain sections of metropolitan and urban areas are facing increasing difficulties in obtaining parking space owing to an influx of motorists seeking parking within residential streets. A resident who has no off-street-parking or who cannot reasonably provide such a facility is most disadvantaged. Whilst the law does not provide for a resident having the right to kerbspace in front of or close to his or her residence, there may be ground for some preferential treatment where parking can be permitted. A technique used to improve the lot of the resident of the above mentioned areas is to designate a proportion of the kerbspace within the problem area for "period" parking, with exemption for authorised residents. Such a scheme is generally known as a resident parking scheme, and may be introduced to operate in a particular street or area. These schemes should be considered only as a short-term solution and every effort made to otherwise relieve the situation on a long-term basis. This manual provides general guidelines on resident parking schemes. /TRRL/
