Notice of Proposals

BRECKLAND DISTRICT COUNCIL (OFF-STREET PARKING PLACES) (AMENDMENT NO. 1) ORDER 2020

Notice is hereby given that Breckland District Council ("the Council"), in exercise of its powers under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, as amended, and the Traffic Management Act 2004, as amended, and all other enabling powers, proposes to make the Breckland District Council (Off-Street Parking Places) (Amendment No. 1) Order 2020 ("the Amending Order").

The effect of the Amending Order, if made, will be to amend the Breckland District Council (Off-Street Parking Places) Order 2014 ("the 2014 Order") so as to limit parking (called "waiting" in the 2014 Order) at the Queens Square Attleborough car park as follows: 

  • limit waiting between 8am and 6pm Mondays to Saturdays inclusive to 3 hours, with no return within 1 hour from the expiry of the parking ticket
  • the restrictions will not apply on market days (Thursdays) to stallholders using bays clearly marked for use by stallholders during the hours permitted by the 2014 Order 
  • the existing provision within the 2014 Order for disabled vehicles to park for an extra 30 minutes before the penalty provisions take effect will not apply as the 3 hour period is considered sufficient  
  • drivers will be required to obtain a parking ticket to enable the limited waiting to be enforced; and 
  • waiting will remain unlimited at all other times. 

The impact of the changes will be monitored by the Council for a trial period to ascertain whether the proposed restrictions meet the Council's aims, before the Council decides whether to revoke the Amending Order or leave the amended arrangements in place permanently.

Further consultation will be carried out before this further decision is made.

No charges will be introduced by the Amending Order. 

The proposed amended waiting times will, if the Order is made, be as follows:

Queens Square, Attleborough (car park no. 3 within Schedule 1 to the 2014 Order)
