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

Barbers Walk, Abstacle Hill, Miswell Lane and Cobbetts Ride, Tring

We are working with ADL Traffic and Highways Engineering Ltd to consult residents and businesses of Barbers Walk, Abstacle Hill, Miswell Lane and Cobbetts Ride in Tring on the proposal to introduce parking restrictions. This is in response to concerns raised by residents regarding commuter parking and the lack of available parking for residents on street as well as inappropriate parking by commuters.

Reasons for the proposals

  • To prioritise on-street parking for residents and dissuade commuter parking
  • To prevent parked vehicles causing an obstruction or access issues. Especially at junctions
  • To prevent parked vehicles blocking footways, forcing pedestrians to walk on the highway
  • Sight lines for pedestrians crossing the road are currently being obscured by parked vehicles
  • To avoid danger to persons or other traffic using the roads or any other roads or for preventing the likelihood of any such danger arising
  • For the preservation and improvement of the amenity of the areas concerned.

Proposed restrictions

  • No waiting at any time (double yellow line) restrictions
  • No waiting Monday to Friday, 11am to 1pm (single yellow line) restrictions.

For further details, please view the  Residents' Consultation Letter and Plan (PDF 247KB).

Stakeholders affected by the proposals will be consulted from Wednesday 15 June 2022 to Friday 15 July 2022 (noon).

Station Road, Hemel Hempstead 

We are working with ADL Traffic and Highways Engineering Ltd to consult on the proposal to introduce parking restrictions on Station Road, Hemel Hempstead.

Reasons for the proposals

Concerns have been raised regarding the current gap in the existing no waiting at any time (double yellow line) restrictions on the north-western side of Station Road immediately south-west of its junction with The Plough (Magic) Roundabout.

Currently, vehicles are parking on the verge and occasionally straddling the verge and the road itself. This is impeding visibility for vehicles attempting to pull out from Cotterells and is causing an obstruction to passing traffic on Station Road, both of which have contributed to concerns about road safety at this location.

Proposed restrictions

  • To prevent inappropriate and dangerous parking, no waiting at any time (double yellow line) restrictions are proposed.
