To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether, in the light of changes proposed in the Deregulation Bill, there will be a grace period for drivers whose parked cars cause obstructions in bus lanes or at yellow box junctions.

In December, the Government’s consultation on parking asked for comments on the scope for introducing new grace periods for parking, including what areas it should apply to. In the Government’s response to the consultation, we announced we will introduce a mandatory 10 minute free period (a) at the end of paid-for on-street parking, (b) at the end of free on-street parking, and DCLG will also lead work to extend the same grace period to local authority off-street parking. I have placed in the Library a copy of the Government’s response to the consultation. We have not announced any grace periods for bus lanes or yellow box junctions.
