Clean Air Zone Additional Measures – St Georges Permit Parking Scheme

Closes 15 Sep 2019

Opened 11 Jul 2019

Overview

Pollution in the air, mainly caused by vehicles on the roads, is having a harmful effect on the health of people living, working and studying in the city.

Birmingham is taking action by introducing a Clean Air Zone (CAZ), which will include all roads within the A4540 Middleway Ring Road (but not the Middleway itself).  This will mean that drivers of the most polluting vehicles will have to pay a daily charge to travel through the area covered by the zone.

As part of the Clean Air Zone, a number of additional transport schemes will be introduced with the aim of reducing congestion and improving air quality.

One of these additional schemes is to introduce parking controls on all streets within the CAZ and prevent anyone parking all day for free. This should further discourage people from driving into the CAZ and should make it easier for residents in the zone who have vehicles to park near to their homes.

Parking Proposals

We will be adding parking controls on streets in the St Georges area in early 2020 and would like your views on what type of parking is allowed on which streets.

The scheme is described below. The maps and an FAQs document can also downloaded at the bottom of this page.

The area covered by this scheme is shown on the map below:

On streets where people live, we are proposing a resident permit scheme operating every day between 8am and 6pm. During these times only vehicles displaying a St Georges resident parking permit (or resident’s visitor permit) would be allowed to park there. Only local residents will be able to apply for permits. The cost of one St Georges resident permit per property will be paid for by the council (using CAZ income) for the first two years, after which residents will have to purchase permits.

On other streets in the area where is it safe to park, pay & display parking (park and pay by phone) would apply between 8am and 6pm. Business permits would be available to allow local workers to park in these pay & display bays, at a cost of £135 per year.

Everywhere else would have no waiting (yellow line) restrictions.

Overnight, both resident parking spaces and pay & display spaces would be freely available for anyone to use without cost.

After the consultation closes, we will review all your responses and make any necessary changes to the plans. After this, there will be a period of legal consultation on the Traffic Regulation Order before the scheme can be implemented.

We plan to introduce the changes in early 2020. At this time we will contact residents and businesses again with details of the final plans and how to apply for permits.
