Warwickshire County Council Borough of Rugby Civil Parking Enforcement Area Variation 3 (Consolidation) Order 2020 – Central Park Drive

Further to the recent introduction of short sections of double yellow lines in Central Park Drive, Rugby, it has been brought to our attention that the mixed-use nature of Central Park Drive still results in traffic issues within the road and parked vehicles restricting carriageway width and visibility.

While there is a school located on Central Park Drive, it is still a business/commercial/industrial park so as such it is not considered appropriate to prohibit HGV parking entirely, as these vehicles may well be displaced into other, less suitable nearby streets including residential.  Warwickshire County Council therefore proposes to introduce further, more comprehensive waiting restrictions in the area with the intention of managing where vehicles may park in order to minimise congestion and restrictions to carriageway width and visibility.

Parking is currently unrestricted in nearby streets;  given the reduced capacity proposed in Central Park Drive and the likely limited displacement of HGVS, sections of waiting restrictions are also proposed for Castle Mound Way, Coton Park Drive and Bryant Drive to prevent parking close to junctions, hazards and larger accesses in a way which obstruct visibility.

A plan showing the proposed restrictions can be found by following the link below:

Bermuda Bridge – The Warwickshire County Council (Borough of Nuneaton & Bedworth) (Civil Enforcement Area) (Waiting Restrictions, On Street Parking Places) (Consolidation) (Variation C) Order 2019

Bermuda Connectivity Scheme – Griff Island to Heath End Road

Please note that due to the holiday period publishing schedules, the statutory notice in the local press will be published on either the 26th December 2019 or the 2nd January 2020;  however, in acknowledgement that a number of residents and other interested parties may be away over this period, notices on street and statutory consultation are being published now with the usual 3 week consultation period extended until the 29th January 2020.

Warwickshire County Council has previously consulted on a major project to re-open the bridge across the A444, Nuneaton to connect Griff Island to the south of Nuneaton with Heath End Road to the west. Original proposals, as designed and opened to initial consultation, showed double yellow lines along the entire route connecting Griff Island with Heath End Road.

Taking into account feedback received and the results of an independent road safety audit, a full investigation into parking provision along the route has been carried out which has resulted in the revised proposals as detailed below.  This incorporates full time parking places to remain where road widths are sufficient to maintain through-flow of traffic, and some parking to be available at times of lower expected traffic volumes.

Full details of Traffic Orders relating to parking can be found by following the links below:

i) Plans showing the revised extents of parking provision: TR-10935-WR(01 to10) Waiting Restrictions

ii) Waiting Restrictions TROs (Parking) – Public Notice

iii) Waiting Restrictions TROs (Parking) – Statement of Reasons


In addition to the waiting restrictions, speed reducing features (central traffic islands) are proposed at five locations along the main route.  It is also proposed that articulated vehicles are prohibited from using Tenlons Road (except for access to and from properties & businesses on Tenlons Road itself), with the through route along Bermuda Road.

Plans and details of the locations of central islands:

i) TR11037-1 – Traffic Islands (Bermuda Road and The Bridleway)

ii) TR11037-2 – Traffic Islands (2 x Bermuda Bridge approaches)

iii) TR11037-3 – Traffic Islands (St Georges Way)

Public consultation on proposed changes to on-street parking

Consultation start 22 July 2019

Consultation end 22 September 2019

 About this consultation

Warwickshire County Council Parking Management is carrying out a consultation on proposed changes to on-street parking. This consultation covers the cost of residents’ permits and how permitting will be managed in the future.

Unfortunately, the cost of residents permits is having to rise. The residents’ permit schemes are part of the way in which we ensure that there are suitable and adequate parking facilities on the highway for people near their homes but there is an unavoidable cost to administering and enforcing such schemes. However, we do not plan to recover more income than it actually costs to run resident’s parking schemes. We want to involve the public in the decision-making process around managing parking on-street and provide as much information as we can.

We are asking for feedback on the costs of residents permits, new packages for buying visitor permits and the use of a proposed new online digital permitting system.

Anyone who is interested can respond to this consultation including but not limited to the general public, residents and permit holders, business and community representatives and other local authorities.

We aim to implement the changes to on-street parking management from 6 April 2020. The consultation is taking place now to allow enough time to consider responses before the changes are due to take place in April 2020.

What we are consulting about

  1. Residents permit charges

Residents permit schemes have been introduced, in line with our parking policy, in parts of Warwickshire where residents struggle to park close to their homes as a result of a lack of off-street parking together with demand from other sources such as businesses, schools, hospitals and shopping locations.

Successful residents’ schemes rely on administration of the scheme and appropriate levels of enforcement. This comes at a cost to the Council. Analysis of the financial impact on the Council of running residents permit schemes shows a cost of close to £80 per permit. These costs include design and implementation of parking schemes, the legal process of amending traffic regulation orders, signing and lining, on-street enforcement through our service provider NSL and back office support from both NSL and at Warwickshire County Council.

For many years, Warwickshire County Council has kept its permit charges at a level which has not reflected the cost of running the permit scheme. These are currently £25 per annual permit. We now have an unavoidable need to raise our charges to more closely meet our costs.

We have commissioned a permit benchmarking report which is available to read on our consultation webpage: http://www.warwickshire.gov.uk/ask.

We are offering two options.

  • Option One is a flat rate of £80 per resident’s permit up to a maximum of three permits per household.
  • Option Two offers a tiered permit cost again up to a maximum of three permits per household.

Option One

1st permit 2nd permit 3rd permit
£80 £80 £80

Option Two

1st permit 2nd permit 3rd permit
£35 £55 £80

 2. A change from paper-based to virtual permitting

In line with the government’s drive towards online systems, such as vehicle excise duty (car tax) and television licensing, we are moving towards virtual permitting which will be managed online.

Our existing paper-based permit management system is becoming obsolete with technical support from its suppliers being reduced from October onwards. We must now move to a digital, online system.

We are working with our current service provider, NSL, to provide a new system called PermitSmarti. The new system will require you to create a user account online and this will allow you to apply for, pay for and renew permits and upload any supporting documents as necessary.

You will no longer receive a paper permit to put in your car. Our Civil Enforcement Officers who patrol the streets have handheld devices which can check whether a car has a permit or not.

For the small number of people who do not have internet access, it will be possible to apply via post or phone and an account will be created for you.

We have carried out an Equality Impact Assessment on the proposals to introduce online virtual permitting and this is available to read at http://www.warwickshire.gov.uk/ask.

3. Visitors permit changes

There is evidence that visitor’s permits are being sold to provide long term all-day parking on-street. This is not the intention of visitors permits and unfairly takes up kerbside space. The new system will allow residents to register their visitors’ vehicles for the period of time that they wish to park. There will be a limit on the amount of overall time that visitors may park to prevent the kind of all year round all day parking described above.

We propose to offer two packages of visitors parking via the new online virtual permitting system. You will be able to choose from either package one or package two. Residents may purchase only one of these options per year.

  1. The first package will cost £25, the same as the current visitor’s permit price. It will provide 600 hours of parking for use throughout the year, which equates to 25 days, if each session were for a twenty-four hour period.
  2. The second package costs £50 and will provide 1200 hours of visitors parking for use throughout the year. This is equivalent to 50 full days parking.

We need to limit the amount of visitors parking to tackle the misuse without unfairly penalising genuine visitors. This approach addresses these issues.

Residents will need to register their visitors’ vehicles before they park on street and when they intend to park for longer than the current on-street waiting restrictions in their road. The system will provide a countdown of available hours remaining.

Example: two hours waiting restriction on-street. Visitor parks from 10am to 4pm. Resident will need to log their visitor’s registration details for parking from 12noon to 4pm, costing four hours of their annual allowance.

We believe this caters for genuine visitors and, at the same time, prevents the kind of misuse which is frequently highlighted to us. This will free up valuable kerbside space for local residents.

It is important to note that Home Carers visits will not be affected by these changes as they will continue to qualify for permits in their own right.

You may wish to read our frequently asked questions document which provides more information.

  1. Guesthouse visitors permits

The new online virtual permitting system will require changes to how guesthouse owners manage their visitors’ parking.

Scratchcards will no longer be provided.

Guesthouse owners will create their own account and register their visitors’ vehicles before they arrive, with one vehicle per room booking. Twenty-four hours parking will cost £5 per vehicle. This is a slight increase from the £3 charge at present but is the first increase in over fifteen years.

There is no limit to the number of guesthouse visitors’ parking sessions during the course of one year.

Again, the new system will be designed to be flexible to cater for busy guesthouses and those which receive fewer visitors.

The new system will continue to allow visitors to park on-street at or close to their chosen guesthouse.
