Elm Grove pavement parking ban 

A ban on pavement parking in Elm Grove in Brighton is being introduced from next month.

The ban was approved by the council’s Environment, Transport and Sustainability committee in January following a deputation brought by local residents at an earlier meeting.

A Traffic Regulation Order was advertised in March and signage has now been installed in the area.

We are currently issuing motorists with a warning notice but, from Monday 5 June, vehicles parked on a pavement in Elm Grove could receive a Penalty Charge Notice.

Councillor Trevor Muten, chair of the Transport & Sustainability Committee, said: “The ban is designed to make walking safer for pedestrians, give residents better access to their homes, improve accessibility for wheelchairs, mobility scooters and pushchairs and prevent damage to the pavement.” 

The ban is similar to those introduced in other parts of the city including Portland Road and Carden Avenue.
