Parking restrictions on Solihull residential streets suspended over festive period

Solihull Editorial 18th Dec, 2018   0

PARKING enforcement on residential streets in the borough will be suspended over the Christmas period again this year.

Solihull Council will suspend the enforcement of residential parking restrictions from 8am on Monday, December 24 and resume at 8am on Wednesday, January 2, due to the increased number of cars of visiting friends and family expected to be parked on residential streets.

However, the reduction in traffic flow through the borough over the main Christmas period means the council are able to relax parking restrictions in the borough.

Councillor Ted Richards, cabinet member for transport and highways, said: “In normal circumstances these additional parked vehicles would be problematic for traffic in the borough.

“However, our experience over previous years has shown that with reduced traffic over the main Christmas period, there is no need to enforce these parking restrictions.

“Furthermore, I hope people will remember to park responsibly and not inconvenience their neighbours or other road users over the festive period.

“May I also take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year.”
