Richmond Council have put an additional 30 parking spaces in the place of the yellow lines along the roads in Richmond Town Centre and Richmond Hill, following a recent review. 24 of these are for residents who hold permits, and 6 are pay and display spaces. The council have also declared a further 15 spaces, which were previously one of the two, as shared-use to give drivers more parking options.
"The removal of unnecessary yellow lines to create extra on street parking is a welcome change when space is at a premium, and it's even better when local businesses can benefit.
“A number of these changes in Richmond were brought about following recommendations from residents and, provided road safety is not adversely affected, we welcome new suggestions.",stated Richmond Council Cabinet Member for Highways and Streetscene, Cllr Stephen Speak.
