Parking restrictions

We've produced a number of guides to explain parking restrictions in Brighton & Hove. The guides give information such as who can park there, whether the restriction applies on bank holidays and much more.

If you do not obey a parking restriction you may receive a penalty charge notice.

If you see a vehicle parked where it should not be you can report it to us.

Other information you may find useful is the Highway Code.

Controlled parking zones

Areas where on-street parking is controlled are called controlled parking zones (CPZs).​ There is a timetable of CPZs which has been agreed by the Environment, Transport and Sustainability committee (ETS committee), which runs up till 2023 which covers areas which have petitioned or shown strong support to the council for CPZs. 

If residents in a particular area would like the council to be aware of the strength of feeling for a CPZ then the best way forward is for residents to put together a petition and pass this to their ward councillors requesting that this petition is presented at a future ETS committee.

This will enable the council to gauge the strength of feeling for a CPZ in certain areas and whether there is ward councillor support. This would then be considered in a future report to the ETS committee when the future parking scheme timetable is next considered.
