- Wednesday 12 June, Mayor of Bristol - George Ferguson - announced proposals for significant changes to initial plans for an expansion of residents’ parking schemes in the city.

- Thursday 20 June at 2pm, the proposals will be scrutinised by the Sustainable Development and Transport Scrutiny Commission.

- As part of listening to feedback and developing the proposals, the council is running a city conversation on tackling traffic congestion, including RPS as part of a package of measures.
You are welcome to attend these council meetings - the agendas and reports will be published prior to the meeting. We'll also be webcasting the meeting for those who are unable to attend or who want to catch up on the discussion later. Meetings take place in City Hall. Details of making representation e.g. asking questions, making statements etc; at council meetings - please note deadlines apply and you need to give notice to make a representation.
We have produced some draft plans for the Cotham North (pdf, 2.8 MB) (opens new window) and Redland (pdf, 5.1 MB) (opens new window) areas. We have held one meeting with local ward members and have taken away their initial comments and suggestions to see whether they can be incorporated into our final proposal.
If you have any comments or suggestions about the initial designs, for example the quantity and type of parking in your street or whether you would like your driveway protected with double yellow lines, please let us know.
We are currently finalising the plans and are incorporating your comments wherever possible. Please write or email us with your feedback to the plans
We are developing proposals for new residents’ parking schemes in areas around the city centre. Look at a map showing which areas we are looking at (pdf, 1.0 MB) (opens new window).
For further information about the RPS programme, please read:

Residents' Parking Scheme (RPS) areas improve neighbourhoods by making it easier for residents, businesses and their visitors to park.
Other benefits include improved air quality and a safer environment, due to the reduction in obstructive parking and fewer vehicles circling the area searching for a parking space.
RPS areas are a key part of our sustainable transport policy. They make a significant contribution towards tackling congestion and increasing the use of public transport and cycling by reducing the number of people commuting into the city by private car.
