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.
How parking is monitored
A team of Rugby Borough Council Civil Enforcement Officers are employed to patrol the streets and car parks to enforce the regulations when they are broken.
Where does the enforcement cover?
Any areas within the borough of Rugby where yellow lines or parking restrictions are in place and council public car parks.
Why did the council take over responsibility from the police?
- Encourage sensible and safe parking in Rugby which will benefit all highway users, including pedestrians, cyclists and bus passengers
- Reduce illegal, dangerous and inconsiderate parking
- Cut congestion and the resulting pollution it causes
- Help the emergency services to get across Rugby Borough
