Parking Policy

Consultation on Rutland's new Parking Policy

Rutland County Council has developed a new Parking Policy, which underwent public consultation between Monday 28th March and midnight on Sunday 22nd May 2022. 

Through the public consultation we sought feedback on the overarching vision and objectives of the Parking Policy along with the specific policies contained within it.

The public consultation has now closed and the results are being analysed. An update on the consultation findings will be published in due course.

Thank you to all that took part.


This Parking Policy supersedes the 2011 Strategic Parking Review and outlines updated policies and procedures to help us safely and efficiently manage our highway network. 

Overview of the new Parking Policy

Our vision, outlined within the new Policy is to deliver public parking provision (including infrastructure and enforcement) that supports our county’s economy and environmental goals by enabling our residents, businesses, and visitors to safely access and enjoy local services and amenities.

Our primary objectives are therefore to:

  • Ensure the safety of those using our highway – however they choose to travel;
  • Provide access to services and enable the efficient movement of vehicles through our towns and along key routes; and
  • Ensure parking provision and other parking services are economically sustainable.
These are supported by a number of secondary objectives designed to ensure delivery of the policy contributes to wider policy goals locally and nationally:

  • Protect our rural environment;
  • Reduce our impact on the environment by encouraging behaviour change and a reduction in car use;
  • Encourage and educate residents to take responsibility for their choices; and
  • Support the local economy.
