We have received complaints regarding double yellow lines in the village. Any obstruction can be dangerous, especially where emergency vehicles may need access.
When parking on single yellow lines read the sign plate during prescribed hours indicating the times that waiting is prohibited. In Controlled Parking Zones no sign will be present and the restriction will be effective during the same controlled hours of the zone.
These times are shown on the zone entry signs. Double yellow lines do not require a time plate and prohibit waiting at all times. You may only wait on these lines if you are carrying out loading/unloading or allowing passengers to board or alight. Blue badge holders may wait on yellow lines for up to 3 hours but must ensure that their clock is correctly set and prominently displayed.
It is not uncommon for restrictions to change or for times to differ on opposite sides of the road so read all signs present carefully.
