Streets for All : 2 Parking restrictions without yellow lines

Historic areas are sensitive to the colour and amount of visual street clutter which can reduce the quality of its character.Yellow lines form part of this visual clutter and can detract from the built form, especially in small, narrow streets.The removal of such lines is a goal for conservation areas, but when seen to be essential they should be marked as 50mm wide and primrose or cream in colour.

We are now (September 2017) consulting on revised Streets for All guidance. See our guidance consultations webpage for more details.

The consultation closes at 5pm on Thursday 9 November 2017.
