Waiting restrictions

Waiting restrictions that are indicated by yellow lines apply to the pavement and verge as well as the road.

Where there is a single yellow line, you may stop to load or unload (unless there are also loading restrictions) or while passengers get in or out of your vehicle. The time that the restriction applies is shown on a nearby plate.

Double yellow lines mean no waiting at any time.

For other road markings, the times that the restrictions apply are shown on nearby plates or on entry signs to controlled parking zones. If no days are shown on the signs, the restrictions are in force every day, including Sundays and Bank Holidays.

Waiting restrictions are supported by a legal document called a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO).

Traffic Regulation Orders

Hertfordshire County Council makes most Traffic Regulation Orders. You can find more information about these on Herts County Council’s website

Below is a list of the Traffic Regulation Orders we have made since 2009 that are in force.

New Traffic Regulation Orders

We occasionally make Traffic Regulation Orders - these are advertised before they are enacted. Hertfordshire County Council makes most Traffic Regulation Orders - you can find more information about these on the Hertfordshire County Council website.

Documentation relating to current Dacorum Borough Council Traffic Regulation Order consultations and Traffic Regulation Orders made within the previous six weeks will appear here:

Marlowes, Hemel Hempstead

We're working in partnership with ADL Traffic and Highways Engineering Ltd to introduce parking restrictions on Marlowes, Hemel Hempstead. We're consulting residents and businesses by proposing to make a minor amendment to the existing The Borough of Dacorum (Marlowes, Hemel Hempstead) (On Street Charging and Waiting and Loading Restrictions) Order 2022 to incorporate recently introduced enforcement legislation.

Article 21 is to be amended by the substitution of the wording “The Civil Enforcement of Parking Contraventions (Guidelines on Levels of Charges) (England) Order 2007” to “The Civil Enforcement of Road Traffic Contraventions (Approved Devices, Charging Guidelines and General Provisions) (England) Regulations 2022”.

For more details, please view the documents below:

Stakeholders affected by the proposals will be consulted over a three-week period from Wednesday 11 January 2023 to Wednesday 1 February 2023.

Waterhouse Street, Hemel Hempstead 

Between 23 March 2022 and 18 April 2022 we ran a consultation on the proposal to convert a section of the existing taxi rank in Waterhouse Street in Hemel Hempstead into pay to park and disabled bays. Evidence had suggested that the current taxi rank bays were not being used anywhere near capacity. You can find out more about this consultation on our Results of completed consultation page.

In response to the initial consultation feedback we're now working in partnership with ADL Traffic and Highways Engineering Ltd to formally consult residents and business on the proposal to convert a smaller section of the existing taxi rank to that what was initially proposed into disabled bays only.

The proposals

These measures are being proposed to increase the town's provision of disabled parking and comprise of the following:

  • Disabled parking bay: Monday to Sunday, 8am to 8pm, three hours no return within two hours (eight bays).

Stakeholders affected by the proposals will be consulted over a three-week period from Wednesday 11 January 2023 to Wednesday 1 February 2023.
