  •  Give residents some priority in parking their cars as close as possible to their property

Only vehicles displaying any of the following are entitled to park within the zone:

  •  A valid parking permit
  •  A voucher / scratch card
  •  A valid blue badge

Any vehicle observed parking without displaying any of these may be issued with a Penalty Charge Notice.
