The Department’s consultation on pavement parking ended on 22 November 2020. We received over 15,000 responses from a mixture of local authorities, disability organisations, businesses and other organisations. Since then each of these has been read and carefully considered. In the light of the consultation findings, Ministers are now actively considering the options for addressing pavement parking. This is a priority and we will publish the formal consultation response and announce next steps for policy as soon as possible.
