Parking in Rugby town centre
Rugby Borough Council, in partnership with Warwickshire County Council, have responsibility for enforcement of parking in Rugby borough.
Legally, public roads are provided for the unrestricted movement of traffic. However, British custom and practice is that vehicles are allowed to park on-street where it is safe to do so, unless specifically prohibited. The council's policy is to use parking restrictions (for example, yellow lines) primarily to address traffic congestion or road safety problems.
Warwickshire County Council, who are the highways authority, have appointed Rugby Borough Council to act on their behalf in issuing permits and enforcing parking regulations.
