A new right will allow residents and firms to start a petition that will require a council review of the use of yellow lines and parking charges.

A minimum of 50 council taxpayers’ signatures or at least 10 per cent of the residents or businesses in the affected local areas will be needed.

A discussion paper proposes that the arrangements for responding to petitions should be determined locally. CLICK HERE for more information.
