Waiting restrictions

Waiting restrictions that are indicated by yellow lines apply to the pavement and verge as well as the road.

Where there is a single yellow line, you may stop to load or unload (unless there are also loading restrictions) or while passengers get in or out of your vehicle. The time that the restriction applies is shown on a nearby plate.

Double yellow lines mean no waiting at any time.

For other road markings, the times that the restrictions apply are shown on nearby plates or on entry signs to controlled parking zones. If no days are shown on the signs, the restrictions are in force every day, including Sundays and Bank Holidays.

Waiting restrictions are supported by a legal document called a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO).

Traffic Regulation Orders

Hertfordshire County Council makes most Traffic Regulation Orders. You can find more information about these on Herts County Council’s website

New Traffic Regulation Orders

Waterhouse Street Taxi Rank, Hemel Hempstead

We are working with ADL Traffic and Highways Engineering Ltd to consult residents and business on the proposal to convert a section of the existing taxi rank on Waterhouse Street in Hemel Hempstead into pay-to-park bays and disabled badge holder only bays .

Evidence suggests that the current taxi rank is not being used anywhere near capacity. This length of space could therefore be used more efficiently.

The proposals

The measures are also proposed for the following reasons:

  • To provide more parking provision for members of the public using the town centre.
  • To increase the town's provision of disabled parking.

The proposal comprises the provision of the following:

  • Proposed disabled parking bay: Monday to Sunday (8am to 8pm), three hours no return within two hours (seven bays)
  • Proposed pay-to-park bay: Monday to Saturday (8am to 6pm) one hour no return within one hour (approximately seven spaces).

A plan with the proposed charges is set out in the document below:
