Solihull Council will suspend the enforcement of residential parking restrictions over the Christmas period this year.
The restrictions will be suspended from 8am on Sunday 24 December and resume at 8am Wednesday 3 January.
With many residents expecting family and friends to visit over the festive period there will inevitably be an increase in the amount of parked cars on residential streets. However, the reduction in traffic flow through the borough over the main Christmas period means the council is able to relax parking restrictions in the borough.
Councillor Ted Richards, Cabinet Member for Transport and Highways, said: “In normal circumstances these additional parked vehicles would be problematic for traffic in the borough. However, our experience over previous years has shown that with reduced traffic over the main Christmas period, there is no need to enforce these parking restrictions.
“Furthermore, I hope people will remember to park responsibly and not inconvenience their neighbours or other road users over the festive
“May I also take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year.”
