Throughout the year, the Council receives a great deal of requests for parking restrictions and/or improvements. These come through via a range of channels and are recorded on the Parking Services Investigation List for consideration for a future parking work programme. The work programme is prominent and important in planning the way the Council manages the residents and businesses of the borough varied challenges and expectations. It is also central in focusing the efficiency and priorities of the Parking Services team's future parking assignments.

The most recent work programme was agreed in January 2020. 

Due to the number and large scale of the projects, plus the time it can take to complete any given project, the work programme was extended to cover a two year period 2020-2022. The below areas are on the current works programme:

Essendon - Due to complete in 2021, followed by monitoring period

Salisbury Village - Restrictions due to start mid 2021, with a monitoring period after introduction

Restrictions introduced and now in monitoring period:
