Double or single yellow lines (waiting restrictions) can be used to manage parking.

Contact the Traffic Management Team to request yellow lines. Give full details of the reasons why you feel yellow lines are required.

Issues which may lead to a requirement for yellow lines include:

  • vehicles parked causing obstruction close to a junction
  • a road safety problem (such as vehicles parking on the brow of a hill, or on a corner)

Application process

We consider requests for yellow lines annually. An application can take 9 to 18 months to complete.

We will let you know when we have received your request and what action we will take.

If an application is supported, it will be added to a waiting list until we can carry out further investigation.

  • we will contact you within 10 working days to acknowledge receipt of your application
  • if you have not heard from us within 10 working days please contact us to check the status of your application

H-Bar carriageway markings

Yellow lines cannot be introduced to protect a private driveway entrance.

You can request 'keep clear' H-Bar carriageway markings for your dropped kerb entrance.
