Parking on estates
Traffic Management Orders (TMO) (previously Parking Regulation Schemes) are used on many estates to maximise parking for residents and their visitors.
Estates covered by a TMO
Where TMOs are in place, vehicles parking on an estate must clearly display a valid estate parking permit in their windscreen. If you fail to do so you will receive a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN).
Vehicles must be roadworthy and have a valid vehicle Excise Licence (road tax).
Estate parking permits are not valid in Controlled Parking Zones (CPZs) on the public highway. Similarly, permits for CPZs are not valid on housing estates.
Residents parking in a disabled bay on a council housing estate covered by a TMO will need to display a valid Blue badge.
Failure to clearly display this will result in a PCN.
Please be aware disabled bays are not allocated to individuals and any resident displaying a blue badge can park in a disabled bay.
Reporting parking infringements
You can report parking infringements to our parking contractors Mouchel Ltd who monitor and enforce the Parking Regulation Scheme on housing estates.
Reports can be made 24 hours a day. Overnight reports will be actioned at the start of the next day.
