Road markings for the Hanover and Elm Grove parking scheme

Please see the lining schedule form for the dates on which the work will take place

Work to create road markings for the new parking scheme will begin on Monday 31 July.

We’re required to put up warning notices 48 hours before work begins. Cones and signs will be placed on street from Friday 28 July.

Please note Lining work is subject to weather conditions, rain or other adverse conditions may cause a delay.

This schedule will be updated on a weekly basis

Moving vehicles

Please move vehicles, where possible, to nearby streets before work starts.

We will only relocate vehicles as a last resort. If a vehicle must be moved, it will be towed to an adjacent road, or to the top/bottom of the road – as close as possible to the original location. We will not fine or charge vehicle owners if this happens. We will also notify the police if we move a vehicle, in case it is reported as stolen when the driver returns.

If your vehicle is moved and you are unsure where it is, please call: 0345 603 5469.

The new road markings are needed as part of the agreed proposal for parking restrictions in the Hanover and Elm Grove area.

If you have specific questions, please direct them to the Parking Infrastructure team: parking.infrastructure@brighton-hove.gov.uk.

Hanover and Elm Grove area parking proposals and consultation

We asked residents and businesses in the Hanover and Elm Grove area about our proposed designs a residents parking scheme.

On 14 March 2017 the Environment, Transport and Sustainability Committee decided to go ahead with a residents’ parking scheme for the  area and agreed a number of amendments.

You can view the details of the decision and listen to the debate at committee which was webcast.

We've now published Traffic Regulation Orders. This gives residents a further opportunity to comment.

Why we proposed a parking scheme for the Hanover and Elm Grove area

We're responding to an increasing number of comments and complaints about a large amount of all day parking in the area. This is making it difficult for residents to park.

Our proposals also aim to address double parking and parking on pavements and double yellow lines.

We want to improve

  • safety for pedestrians
  • traffic flow
  • access for emergency vehicles
