Controlled parking zones (CPZ) overview
The borough is split into CPZs which have different hours of restriction. CPZs were introduced to optimise the use of kerbside space. Each CPZ has a designation code beginning CA- followed by a letter.
Map of CPZs
Each CPZ has its own traffic order which set out the rules relating to:
- Residents Permit / Permit Holders bays
- Paid for parking bays
- Shared-Use bays
The orders also designate specific lengths of kerbside space as being reserved for these uses.
Please note that there are other types of parking bays in the CPZ which are reserved for specific users and may be restricted 24 hours a day.
You must check the sign adjacent to the bay to ensure that you are entitled to park there. You may receive a penalty charge notice if you park in a bay you are not entitled to use.
