New developments

New developments are not usually added to existing permit areas. This is in line with the current practise, where significant new developments are not allowed to join existing permit parking schemes, as the design standards that apply should provide a specified level of private parking. If residents of new developments need additional parking over and above the parking provided by the development itself they would need to make their own arrangements for private parking or consider using the public car parks.
