Guidelines for the Implementation of Paid Parking Control Schemes are contained in the Parking Control Bye-Laws, 2007. For an area to be considered for paid parking control a signed petition by a number of residents should be submitted by the Residents Association, or individually on behalf of a group of residents, to the Parking Section of the Municipal Services Department. The request will be assessed by the Municipal Services Department. A traffic / parking survey will be carried out to assess the nature and extent of the parking problem in the area, whether the implementation of paid parking control is considered appropriate, the suitability of the area and the capacity to accommodate a Pay and Display parking control scheme. In primarily residential areas, if it is considered that Pay and Display is warranted, a survey and accompanying drawing will be circulated to eligible residents to obtain the residents preference in relation to the proposed introduction of Paid Parking. A report on the proposed introduction of a parking scheme will then be brought to the Area Committee in which the proposed Scheme is located for approval. If the Scheme is approved by the Area Committee it will then go to the full Council for final approval to introduce the Scheme.
