§ Mr. Harry Greenway
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he has any plans to seek to require local authorities to establish additional designated parking areas; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Chope
No. The designation of parking places on the highway under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 is a matter for the relevant highway authority. We do however plan to issue further guidance to London authorities under the Road Traffic Act 1991 on the designation of on-street parking spaces.
