The Department of Transport today published a leaflet giving advice to councils on voucher parking.

In a voucher scheme, the motorist must display vouchers purchased in advance to indicate the time of parking and the amount paid. Voucher parking was made legal in 1986 by amendments to the Road Traffic Act 1984. Vouchers are becoming popular with councils because they avoid the need for parking meters or other on street equipment.

A number of early schemes were monitored by the Transport Research Laboratory and the new advice is based on this experience.

On street voucher parking was first introduced by Avon CC in Bath in October 1987. Schemes have since been introduced by West Sussex CC in Chichester and Bognor Regis; by East Sussex CC in Brighton; by Surrey CC in Woking; by Kent CC in Canterbury; by Fife RC in St Andrews; by South Glamorgan CC in Cardiff; by Woking BC; and by Camden and Richmond LBCs.
