The Department for Transport has released draft guidelines on civil parking enforcement - reinforcing recommendations made by the Transport Select Committee last month (LGC, 29 June).

The guidelines propose tough measures to ensure councils use enforcement powers for traffic management rather than to raise money.

Councils will be required to produce comprehensive information on parking policies; provide dedicated training for all parking wardens; wheel clamp only the most persistent offenders; and give extra powers to independent adjudicators.

The guidelines also confirm plans to introduce a national register of parking offenders.

A period of consultation will now follow with 25 September the closing date for comments.
