Scheme to tighten restricted parking in Swansea's Maritime Quarter

A scheme to stop motorists avoiding a parking ticket by moving from one time-restricted parking bay to another in a nearby street is being considered.

Streets in Swansea's Maritime Quarter will be turned into one controlled zone meaning drivers will have to park away from the area when their time is up.

The spaces are free while there is a pay and display car park in the area which does not form part of the scheme.

A public consultation ends on 4 September.

"A controlled parking zone is being proposed for the Maritime Quarter as part of the [nearby] boulevard works," said a Swansea council spokesperson.

"The zone will feature a mix of residents' parking and time-restricted parking spaces for members of the public to use."

A similar parking zone is currently in operation across all the streets in the Sandfields area of the city.
