Residents Parking Schemes

You have been in contact with us sharing your concerns about parking problems in Chippenham.
Although highway issues are the responsibility of Wiltshire Council, we act as a consultee in any residents parking proposals and we are interested in gauging your views. We are working with Wiltshire Council to find possible solutions to these problems, one of which could be residents parking schemes.

Further information on these schemes can be found on either Wiltshire Council’s website HERE

Please be aware that these schemes do not guarantee a parking space, may be chargeable for a permit and a significant percentage of residents need to agree to a scheme before it can be considered.  Wiltshire Council has adopted a minimum consultation response rate of over 50% and use a majority of 51% or above to carry the vote.
If you feel that a residents parking scheme may benefit your area, let us have your comments on your specific area by emailing enquiries@chippenham.gov.uk.
