Q4 - DO YOU WANT YOUR DRIVEWAY MARKED? YELLOW LINE – will prevent ANY parking during operating times for you, your visitors or anyone else WHITE LINE – will allow ANYONE with a Resident/Business/Visitor CPZ parking permit to park across ANY white-lined drive in that zone ‘Registered’ driveways will NOT be protected against CPZ permit parking during the CPZ operating hours The option favoured by the majority of respondents will be applied across the zone [usually white lines]. If you would prefer a Yellow line to a White line where the default ruling is for WHITE lines you will have to ‘make a case’ for it to Ealing Council A single yellow line will be introduced by default where a driveway provides access to shared property
READING BETWEEN THE LINES! If a residents bay marking [the outer dotted line] is placed across a driveway. Then the driveway will be accompanied by a white advisory line, showing that access is needed at all times. However permit holders using their own driveway or their visitors [and anybody else] displaying a validated visitors voucher can park across a driveway without being penalised with a parking ticket YELLOW DRIVEWAY LINES – NO PARKING BY ANYONE DURING CPZ HOURS WHITE DRIVEWAY LINES – ANYBODY WITH A CPZ PERMIT CAN PARK DURING CPZ HOURS Can I continue to park across my driveway? NOTE: Where a driveway provides access to a shared property i.e. a block of flats, or houses converted into flats, a single yellow line will be introduced by default, unless requested otherwise. [Not clear whether this applies to a shared driveway between two semi-detached houses] ‘Registered’ driveways will NOT be protected against CPZ permit parking during the CPZ operating hours
WILL I GET THE DRIVEWAY LINE COLOUR I CHOOSE? “The most popular option is usually applied across the whole zone. However, if a particular street expressed great demand for the alternative option, it may be considered.” [ Anthony Crane, Ealing CPZ Engineer, 10 April 2013]

Page 3 Disabled badge holders can park in a residents parking bay free without time limit. The badge must be on display at all times. A residents parking permit allows parking in any available residents parking bay in the CPZ zone
Page 4 Dropped kerbs ‘registered’ with Ealing Council will not be enforceable if a resident bay [a white driveway line] is marked across it during or outside the CPZ operational hours
